SuperSport United beats Kaizer Chiefs

Posted: 28 April 2012 Time: 22:09

Kaizer Chiefs slumped to a fourth straight defeat across all competitions as they went down 2-1 at the hands of SuperSport United at the FNB Stadium on Saturday night.

The SuperSport goals were scored by Ashley Hartog and Kermit Erasmus while Lehlohonolo Majoro scored for Chiefs.

United are now just one point behind log leaders Orlando Pirates and have the fate of their title hopes in their own hands, as they face both Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns in two of their remaining three games.

The visitors started the game very strongly, forcing Chiefs onto the back foot, though they were unable to create any clear chances. Amakhosi soon got their passing game going, but apart from one sharp save by Ronwen Williams from a quickly-taken free kick, they offered little in attack.

On 39 minutes SuperSport deservedly broke the deadlock. A Kermit Erasmus free-kick found Thabo September at the far post and the defender produced a fine header back across goal that hit the crossbar, before Ashley Hartog forced the ball home on the rebound to make it 1-0.

It took just 10 minutes of the second half for United to double their advantage. Erasmus let fly with a shot from long range that swerved viciously and left Khune rooted to his line, helpless to try and make a save.

At 2-0 up it seemed that SuperSport would cruise to an easy victory, but any thoughts of that were erased on the hour mark when Chiefs pulled one back. Substitute George Lebese provided a good cross from the left, Lucky Baloyi saw his goal-bound effort blocked by a defender, but Lehlohonolo Majoro was on hand to fire home the loose ball from close range.

Substitute Sthembiso Ngcobo almost levelled the game on 77 minutes, arriving late in the middle of the box to meet a Majoro cross from the right flank, but the striker was unlucky to see his effort cannon back off the underside of the crossbar.

Ngcobo came close again in the dying minutes, with a deflected effort that forced Williams into tipping the ball over the crossbar, and that was as close as Chiefs came to an equaliser.

Bra Sweyts since we all know that you are the oldest blogger in this forum, tell me do you really have life? Or life for you is to be the first Old Ndunu to comment here, Indunu FC was formed in 1985 and then you were 31 years old, was there no life for you even then?

I always come down hard on my playas wen they play kak. But Makhosi, we may not be in the class of the Barcelonas of this world but let's face it in futbal luck plays a big role in soccer and this sezin luck just deserted us. I can't blame plays for tonite's loss. The two goals SSU scored where the only real shots @ goals. That has been the story for us thise sezin. I just hope Sundowns win tommoro and as long as Chibuku doesn't win the lig it's fine by me. We live to fight anada day.

Masandawana, lets get ready to change the colour of the log standings. Mamelodi Sundowns F.C. for the championship.

Now its time for our boys to show their true potential and quality. Yes they're capable of much-much more.

Masandawana, We've been through hell, however we must remain truly hopeful and supportive. It has not being easy for every PSL team involved. Ask Kaizer Chiefs family, they can testify to that, very quickly I'm sure of that.

Yellow All The Way!

Yellow I Was, Yellow I Am & Yellow I Will Remain! [all the way to the 6th Premiership title]

this cow called baba mthetwa (sabc soccer commentator) doesn't stop to be biased. He often praised the zebras even they play kaak. He even went further saying that chips were the only team in mzanzi to have lot of trophies. He forgot that those cups won through brown envelopes. I quickly switched on to ss4 after that ebarrassement.

xem, i repeat, nazoorena has a rare hybrid of wiered animals. did you look at those things called: katsande, svasiya, sweswe and limfenenyane(yeye)? this is realy african flair at its best.where else have you ever seen a name starting with an "s" followed by a "v"? it only hapens at nazoorena. vv was a good coach 2 acumulate 40 points with those things, we need him at orlando pirates. bakabaka until kaizer admits bobi will be better off in the taxi business
