Kaizer Chiefs draw with Maritzburg United

Posted: 26 October 2012 Time: 21:56

Terrence Mandaza scored in the final minute of time added on as Maritzburg United snatched a 1-1 draw against Kaizer Chiefs on Friday evening.

Lehlohonolo Majoro scored early on for the visitors but, in the seventh and final minute of time added on, Mandaza looped a header over the diving Itumeleng Khune for a share of the spoils.

Chiefs though, only have themselves to blame after squandering numerous scoring opportunities throughout the match.

Amakhosi certainly didn’t start brightly as they struggled to get hold of the ball, but as they found their feet Stuart Baxter’s men began stringing passes together and creating chances on goal.

And one of these chances were finally converted when Reneilwe Letsholonyane headed down to Majoro, who duly obliged with a deadly finish to give his side the lead.

Chiefs continued to pile on the pressure with numerous corner-kicks and forays forward, but they were unable to find that final pass or cross that would lead to their second goal.

Majoro should really have doubled Chiefs’ lead two minutes into the second half when he found himself through on goal again, but this time he fired wide from about 14 yards out.

Shu-Aib Walters then kept his side in the game with two fantastic save within eight minutes. First, in the 60th minute, he produced a great reflex save to deny Majoro and then in the 68th he flung himself across the face of goal to tip a Bernard Parker shot around the post.

As the second half progressed Chiefs began to tire and United began to find some openings, the most costly for the visitors coming in the seventh minute of injury time.

Mandaza got onto the end of a Peter Petersen cross to level matters with virtually the last touch of the game.

I,m very sure that that referee is a Pirates fan. MU were kicking our players all over the pitch and the ref was doing nothing.

Sorry Mr Editor, it is Mandaza indeed, the commentators confused me, anyways it is proven that the Zebras cannot beat teams in the top half of the table, only Wits. Hahaha from 7 points to 2 points, the umbrella is too heavy for you boys but the DTC is coming to relieve you.

It does look wheels are coming off! I thought that Parcow is better than Falcao, judging by idiotic comments during this afternoon. Shame Chiefs, it's difficult when the giant is breathing behind you. Blame it on Khoza, after all he is responsible for all including global warming! Kwa kwa kwa.
