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.

I think chiefs is not playing well, the opposition they r up against gives them too much respect. they did not win all their matches this season, hope I am not wrong! I DONT LIKE WATCHING THEM PLAY, BUT last night I watched the whole 90+minuts, I think they will be fighting for number 3 or 4, this season again!

They were lucky they played against Leopards, a relegation candidate. If they were playing against the undisputed Champions of this league we would be talking a different story.

only Kaizer Chiefs, FSS, M_burg, SSU, Tuks have not tasted a being loboloed...

Roger de Sa has got his man at Orlando Pirates after the club announced that Eric Tinkler has been added to their technical team.

The Siya crew recently reported that Tinkler had grown disillusioned with the role he had been given at Wits and that de Sa was keen to reunite with the man who was his Clever Boys assistant.

In the early hours of this morning a statement from Dr. Irvin Khoza on the Pirates website said, "I can confirm that Eric is joining us as an assistant coach, I was approached by the head coach (De Sa) that he would like to work with Eric. I immediately spoke to Brian Joffe (the chairman of Wits), he agreed to release Eric to come and join Pirates with immediate effect. We have a solid working relationship with Wits, which goes a long way. I would like to thank Mr. Joffe for the gesture.”

Tinkler will join Teboho Moloi at Mayfair as the second assistant to de Sa.

It remains to be seen how The Ghost will receive Tinkler’s appointment, however the former Barnsley midfielder did do good work with de Sa during their spell with the Students and it could be a shrewd move by Khoza and his management team.

At Chomp-marago. . .before u can start unjustly criticizing the referee about the Chiefs game lastnight, we are still awaiting for answers as to why every game your pathetic team was destined to draw, Mr Zolile Mthetho saved the day with controversial penalties?? free state stars, bloem celtic & now platinum stars... one wonders who is the next victim of this biased atrocity waiting to happen??


& kindly explain why a team that claims to have suffcient depth in all departments, hasn't scored a goal during open play (this excludes dubious penalties) in 5 consecutive matches?! yet u are here getting on our faces about our weak squad, when we have managed to score goals in all but 1 of our matches this season!!

These Marikana 'spinal massacre' fans are such cretins hey; did they really expected Leopards to out do us in our very own backyard like the cup finalists: Amabherete & Swallows did to them?!

*our slogan this season is : "Reclaiming the glory,1 game at a time!"

Chips have undoubtedly started very well and should be proud of themselves. However, what they are doing isnt new as I have seen Fundowns (5-TIME PSL Champs) starting in a similar way only to 'burn' during the crucial time when the season hots up. Zebras throughout the zoo would want to see their team maintaining the momentum for better part of the season and ultimately clinch the title. Do they have a team capable of going until the end and lift the title? Paka & nkatha are on form, do they have cover when they are absent via form loss/injuries/suspensions, etc? Will Baxter have plan B when other teams thoroughly figure out his approach? Do chips have resilience, endurance, mentality, attitude to lift the title? Time will tell..

I would rather have my team starting at low gear and increase the rhythm gradually as the season hots up, than starting at high gear only to 'burn' at crucial time of the season.

I wont blame the Thidielas if they fired a coach, think they need a coach who will not scare the players, if those boys had a coach last night, they should have defended well!
