Kaizer Chiefs beat AmaZulu

Posted: 18 December 2012 Time: 21:22

Kaizer Chiefs consolidated their position at the top of the log with a convincing 2-0 win over AmaZulu in a Premiership match at Soccer City on Tuesday night.

Matthew Rusike and Bernard Parker were the men who got a goal each and compounded bottom of the log Usuthu to more misery.

The first real opportunity of the match fell to Chiefs winger Siphiwe Tshabalala in the 15th minute when he found space in the middle of the park and unleashed a shot from 30-yards which went narrowly wide.

Three minutes later the visitors also had their first threat on goal when from a 35-yard free-kick Marc Van Heerden tested Chiefs keeper Itumeleng Khune, but the Bafana shot-stopper made an easy save.

In the 27th minute there was drama when Rusike went down inside the box in what appeared to be a legitimate penalty appeal, but the referee waved away his claims.

But Rusike got the last laugh in the in the 37th minute with his first goal in Chiefs colours.

George Lebese’s cross from the left wing was not properly cleared and the ball fell into the path of Rusike who struck a venomous shot from the edge of the box with his right foot beyond the reach of the helpless AmaZulu keeper Tapuwa Kapini, 1-0.

In the 57th minute, Chiefs should have had a second goal when Lebese laid the ball toward Rusike, but the striker shot high from eight-yards out.

Lebese then once again beat his marker on the left wing before sending a ball into the box for Lehlohonolo Majoro to get onto the end of, but his six-yard header ricochet off the post in the 65th minute.

Eight minutes from time Chiefs doubled their lead through Parker who had been a second half substitute.

The Premiership’s leading goal scorer spotted Kapini off his line and curled a looping shot from just outside the box with his left foot into the back of the net, 2-0.

Chiefs finished with 10-men after Willard Katsande received his marching orders with four minutes remaining after a second bookable offence.

Nonetheless, the win confirms that Chiefs will finish 2012 on top of the Premiership.

Baxter is overworking his players they are already showing signs of fatigue. You can't run like they do for 90min and 30games. They run up and down like robots. Parker had a ankle injury and the rest will follow.

A lot of our players look tired and easily lose concentration, that was evident today... Some teams will take advantage of this if we dont improve... Kodwa I guess it's sometyms beta to play bad and win than play good and lose... Shabba, Lebese, Masilela must try to keep up with the rest, truth be told... Consistency makes good players great players... Khosi Though and Through!

Poor poor poor game........

3 points nonetheless.......The Orlando Referee didn't succeed.

FIFA must investigate tomorrows game and past fixtures. (Orlando Pirates vs Golden Arrows). They must also ask Formula 1 hotels for footage's of when these things were discussed and organised.

U started like some1 who got brains and then you farted on your brain

Am glad you are aware that Bucs will win tommorow

Next time try going to stadium,2243 can't be good for stadium management...don't just fart,go fart @ the stadium
El Kampion

2243 out of millions of fans...some are deciding for your future in Mangaung, many are at resorts like Sun City,Balito etc. Chiefs fans have spending power, we are now busy boosting the economy through the tourism sector....
What a lot of bull

On Saturday it was 2345 @FNB today 2243

Not every1 went to Bloem,delegates from branches so hold your tortoises

Ballito?kuphi khona...people are seating at shebeens @ Alex,Diepsloot etc wena you saying they went to Ballito

How can they afford to go to Durban at Ballito nogal if they can't pay R40 to go to FNB?

Amazulu were strong for much of the game but just fizzled out towards the end. This league is gonna go down to the wire coz Zebras don't wanna let go of umbrella. And to make things worse, all is not well in our dressing room.

I knew hearts will be broken, King a.k.a Manimizela or whatever is mensturating non stop 2nite. The break will be torture to this Gorillas because they'll be subjected to Amakhosi, Parker & Majoro's golden boys. I hate Pirate supporters with a passion

We started the second round on top today. I'm also not happy with the play today. Since the Free State Stars draw we struggled a lot with teams that park a bus. We pass hoping the ball would reach someone. We must work on that and improve our quick passing and never loose position easily. Apart from that coach must give each player an assignment during this break to come with the results come February. Kantsande must come back more hungrier.

At the top we Reclaiming The Glory!

Merry Xmas and Happy New Year to you all my Kickoff Khosi Branch(AmaKKB).

Now that we have educated Chibuku FC supporters that they are not the first team to win treble in two consecutive seasons Chiefs did that in 91 and 92. We have been spared a lot of that noise, now we can discuss the issues at hand. Or by the way to those who started to follow Gorrilas after the 2010 World Cup, Chibuku is a SOGHURM BEER which was sponsoring the rats in the 90s.

Don't believe the hype... panic is for the weak....

There's nothing about the league going down to the wire... evidence is clear for all to see that Zebras are fizzling out...

At some stage they were 9 points in the green.... but Q2 displays thier decline very well...

And look at the performance... they are already drained physically.... counter attacking is not child's play...

and now they'll be losing about 8 match fixers for a 2 or so month camp with that useless excuse for a national team...

All-in-all its beyond the realm of dreams to expect Chiefs to even finish 3rd... but I can't take everything away from them given the way they started... they will improve 1 notch on last year's position of 5th to 4th....
