Chiefs and Sundowns draw

Posted: 14 November 2007 Time: 22:13

Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns drew 0-0 in an exciting Absa Premier League encounter at the Absa Stadium in Durban on Wednesday night.

The match was fairly even throughout with very few clear-cut scoring opportunities.

Late in the second half Chiefs looked the fresher of the sides but were not able to really trouble the Sundowns goal.

In the 13th minute Sundowns’ Lerato Chabangu shot well wide from long-range.

Cyril Nzama passed the ball a long way up field which found Shaun Bartlett but he hammered his left-footed shot past the post in the 20th minute.

Seven minutes later Esrom Nyandoro’s long-range shot went well wide.

Chabangu took a shot from outside the box in the 40th minute but it was easily saved by keeper Itumeleng Khune.

The sides went in at the break with the score remaining goalless.

In the 72nd minute Brian Baloyi had to make his first stop of the game when a pass down the middle found a running Kaizer Motaung Jnr, who ran into the box with the ball but was denied by an out rushing Baloyi.

Surprise Moriri had a great scoring opportunity when Jorge Acuña passed the ball from the left side to him unmarked in the area; Moriri hit his shot wide but should have done better.

Moriri had an opportunity five minutes later but hammered his shot straight at the keeper.

In the end a draw was probably a fair result.

Mr Coach mushin i believe u dont see the danger ahead,we dont have good combination btween the strikers and midfield,there is huge gap,as result playing with one striker it wont work for us,unless u want to see us out of top 8 again.

Gordon should play Ngwenya & Ndlela instead of fielding Apataki

Mshini is a coward, and he is just confuse. we can not able to penetrate defence with shaun playing alone, otherwise he should bring schwalvyk. chiefs share the ball in the wrong place instad putting it in danger zone. where is the fast attack football coach promise us and that scara ngobese can't fit in?

Acuna sjowed his lass last night, Carelse's outing was not well timed, atleast in dying minutes the the coach would have sacrificed him, he was still palying good, and timing his runs. with Apataki, i think he needs to watch from the stands or the coach is giving him enough tym on the field so that come january he will be given his marching orders?
