Mamelodi Sundowns draw 0-0 with Kaizer Chiefs

Posted: 12 February 2013 Time: 21:28

Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs battled hard on Tuesday evening, but could only produce a goalless draw at Loftus Stadium as League football returned after a two-month hiatus for the Africa Cup of Nations.

Sundowns were in the ascendency early in the match and had an opportunity to open the scoring in the sixth minute, but were let down by poor finishing when Teko Modise cut in on the left wing, but hit his shot well over.

In the 16th minute Katlego Mphela was allowed acres of space by the Chiefs defence on the edge of the area and let fly with a shot but, like Modise, he could not keep the effort down.

Elevens later Modise had another crack at Chiefs keeper Itumeleng Khune from range, but Bafana Bafana’s first-choice had no problems keeping the shot out.

With the half-time break only seconds away, the Glamour Boys were unfortunate to not take the lead when George Lebese hit a thunderous left-footed shot from the edge of the box which Wayne Sandilands could only parry, but the defence scrambled to clear the ball.

Chiefs could have opened their account on 50 minutes when Lebese provided an excellent cross to Bernard Parker, but the striker fluffed his lines and a great chance was missed.

Ten minutes from time Sundowns were superbly denied all three points by Khune. Downs left-back Tebogo Langerman sent in an inch-perfect cross from the left, but Themba Zwane's pin-point header from six yards out was parried over the bar by Khune.

The point sees Amakhosi stretch their lead in the standings to two points over Orlando Pirates, but the Buccaneers can overtake them should they beat SuperSport United tomorrow evening. Downs remain tenth.

any nornal and intelligent person honestly would stop this "wheels are coming off song\" cos clearly its old and irrelavent...i mean this song has been sung by the same GORILLAS since the begging of the season and even now they are still hoping, they started by saying our coach will not last 2 games then 10; when that didnt happen they composed a boring song titled "wheels will come off\" remixed by "umlilo wama phepha\"; when everything failed it then moved to the "famous 08th of December 2012\" when they started digging deep into their history books that everytime they play in CPT and dont win they normally win the next match which they still failed to win!!!! damn if were u i would let go of such stupidity and watch football cos all ur predictions and wishes are still to materialise...

Anyway what more can we expect from GORILLAS cos all they know is to sing one song ooohaahaaahahaahhh -oooohhhoooohaaaahaaaah beating their chests and jumping up and down on tree brunches!!!!
Indeed wheels are coming off
