Match report: Kaizer Chiefs beat Black Leopards in replay

Posted: 19 September 2012 Time: 21:22

Black Leopards were handed their first defeat in the Premiership as Kaizer Chiefs went top of the table with a 2-1 win in a replayed match at Soccer City on Wednesday night.

Bernard Parker and Siphiwe Tshabalala scored a goal in each half for Amakhosi, while former Chiefs man Brian Amidu scored a consolation goal for Leopards in the final minute.

Chiefs dominated from the outset, and only for small period in the first half were they ever in danger of conceding. The visitors were a little lucky to escape with the concession of just two goals.

In the fourth minute, Siphiwe Tshabalala supplied a pin-point corner-kick to find the towering Tefu Mashamaite, but the defender's header bounced off the crossbar.

Eight minutes later George Lebese was pulled down in the box by Ernot Dzaga and the referee pointed to the penalty spot.

Parker stepped up and made no mistake, scoring his fifth goal of the season.

Chiefs seemed to relax a bit after going in front and Leopards managed to create a couple of chances of their own.

In the 20th minute some sloppy defending allowed Raymond Monama a free shot on the edge of the box but he fired inches wide.

In the 36th minute it took the heroics of Siboniso Gaxa to keep his side in the lead as he slid in front of a Rodney Ramagalela cross – had he missed, Thabo Mongalo would surely have tapped home from close range.

After that Chiefs took control of the game yet again and were dictating terms going into the break.

Chiefs created chance after chance in the second half, the first coming after some swift passing on the edge of the box, which resulted in Parker pulling a shot wide.

Eight minutes later Parker was in the thick of the action again, this time dribbling his way past the last defender on the edge of the box, but he failed to beat the keeper one-on-one.

Finally, in the 70th minute, Chiefs were able to find their second goal.

Tshabalala picked up ball on the edge of the box, dribbled past two players and then calmly passed the ball into the back of net.

Leopards tried to find their way back into the game and they created a nervous few minutes for Chiefs, and Amidu scored a minute from time. But it was too little too late for Lidoda Duvha as Chiefs walked away victorious.

Awu guys, why you insulting my mother now? My mother never stole panties, bras, pyjamas, dried fruit and stuck them in big black and gold bag. So why guys? Let's at least respect each other and not talk about each other's mothers. I certainly have no intention to talk about your mother.

Back to the topic: Guys, why didn't Nyawana celebrate his goal? Is he sad like CR7? Lmao maybe he wants another trial in England's second division

Hey wena anti zebra, what is the difference whether he celebrate or not, how do u celebrate a goal against the weekest pink leopards? Its like celebrate when u are hitting a man who is handcufed both hands and that wht shaba felt. U gorrillas can celebrate since u have a drought of scoring goals

My school teacher used to say 'What a fool does at begining the wiseman will do at the end" meaning what Chiefs is doing now (Winning games) other teams will do at the end, What other teams are doing now (Losing games) they will win more games at the end of the season, watch this space.Ifu elikwamanye amateam manje lofika kuChiefs ekugcineni lapho ayobe eswina khona amanye.

These zebras are hypocrites. They are the self-proclaimed 'abafana of love and peace' but they busy insulting my mom. My mom doesn't know kickoff, she doesn't know Kaizer Zebras, and she doesn't know Woolworths but you busy dragging her into this. No man. Leave my mother alone guy.

Why don't you wanna comment on Nyawana? Okay, let's talk about butter fingers

Win something and brag. What we saying is, we have set the std. for all psl clubs to follow, no one is coming nearer. 1.Champions cup, 2.African super cup,3.6xcups in 2yrs. We still waiting, the zebras are celebraiting a win(league game), not clinching one of the cups. Ask sandununu gents when the DTC are picking up, it will be the right time to win the big one

having lost the league twice on goal difference and being the current champ. Here's my advice. beating leopards at your home ground and leading by 2 points is insignificant. All that it takes to loose your footing is for a critical player to get injured. Do you have a good enough bench is the question you should be asking yourselves instead of insulting Champs. We know how to win the league that's why we're not making such noise when we win one game at home. Continue swearing for now .

To all the GORILLAS FC FANS who are now familiar with TREBLE CHAMPIONS. We started this in 1972,1974,1982,1987,1989 and 1992. We have won ALL CUPS on two occasions 1981 and 1984. Don't dare and tell me about your 6 cups over 2 years. I used to collect 7 cups in two years(1981 and 1982)
