Kaizer Chiefs beat Black Leopards 3-1

Posted: 20 February 2013 Time: 21:23

Kingston Nkhatha scored against his former club as Kaizer Chiefs beat Black Leopards 3-1 at Peter Mokaba on Wednesday night.

Tefu Mashamaite had given Chiefs a fourth minute lead from a corner-kick.

Joshua Obaje levelled matters just before the break from a quick counter before Nkhatha netted to restore Chiefs' lead on 65 minutes, and Lucky Baloyi's goal in injury time made sure of the three points.

It was a valiant display from Leopards, but that could not earn them the points.

Amakhosi were given a boost in the match as Morgan Gould returned to starting line-up after his six-month injury lay-off.

In the fourth minute Siphiwe Tshabalala did well to deliver a corner kick to Gould inside the box and it was the defender who directed the effort to Mashamaite, with the centre-back making no errors in putting it past the goalkeeper.

In the 18th minute Leopards showed some urgency in their search for the equaliser and Mongezi Bobe tested Itumeleng Khune from the left of the byline.

Then the Chiefs shot-stopper pulled off the save of the match in the 23rd minute, when he pushed Brian Amidu’s effort onto the upright before gathering the rebound.

Leopards were putting Chiefs under pressure and they tested their luck through Djunga Munganga, who had a shot from 30 yards on the half hour mark.

And their insistence paid off when Obaje beat Khune at the near post with an easy tap-in three minutes from the half-time break.

Abel Makhubela opted to make a change at the start of the second half, bringing on David Zulu in place of Amidu.

Azwindini Maphaha was forced into making a save off Bernard Parker’s 60th minute set-piece, and five minutes later Chiefs put themselves ahead for the second time.

Reneilwe Letsholonyane supplied a through-ball to Nkhatha, who struck it first time with a powerful shot, which shook the back of the net despite Leopards’ goalkeeper having got his fingertips to it.

Despite the pressure from the home side, Chiefs left Polokwane with the glory, when a goal from the substitute Lucky Baloyi in the 94th minute sealed the win and left Stuart Baxter’s side smiling.

Welldone boys. We got the 3 points now. Who is next? I am glad gould is back to stabilise our backline that has been kind of leeky these lately. Gould, Mathoho, Gaxa and Masilela. Moleko must play cup games. The boy is good but Gaxa give better options in attack. Moleko is more comfortable on the ball.
Like it or not, Shaba is a National Icon

There should have been a red card last nite. The guy that pulled Yeye down denied him a clear goal scoring opportunity. Yet my nosey neighbors never forget to tell us about the undue free kick that was awarded to Parker against FSS. Talking about the unhappy people.

Nice win Makhosi.

I'm still not impressed by Nkatha. He is a very good striker, providing lots of aggression upfront. But, just like Lebese, sometimes he seems disconnected to the game. He also make elementary mistakes. His decision making is also very poor. He mus also work on his final execution.

Shabba is my legend. I have no doubt that his form has dipped. But he still sends shivers down the spine of many [especially the Rats next door]. Now imagine when he regains his form. Ngizwa ngiba novalo!

Bobstake please consider bringing Phala and Mogorosi into the Village of Gold. Dladla and Nkosi are not getting younger!

I greet you all in the name of GOLD!......We are Marching ON! The refereeing in this league is appalling. A professional foul was committed on Yeye, but no a yellow card was shown. In another small match, Thabo Matlaba must sit trial for attempted murder.He choked and strangled Vuyo Mere, but guess what the referee cautioned him , and the score was still 0-0.

i said it Pirates are backed up by referees. But the bad news is , KC is backed up by the Almighty himself.

Champs & champ-wannabies I humbly come to you with this request...

I joined the News24 commenting platform yesterday... & with great disgust I saw that the majority of commentators are non-Africans, especially pertaining to issues were Africans are being undermined... like the lives they live, non-Africans are deceiving themselves about our realities, trivializing our existence, our hustle & our struggle... yes we might have faultering leaders but they make it so racial & it ticks me off...

Within their non-African groups this is what they discuss, all along I thought we were progressing as a nation until I found this cocoon, NEWS24, were non-Africans are "getting high on their own supply\"...

So I humbly come before you on a recruitment crusade of Africans to come balance the views on this NEWS24 site.... YESES those people are out of touch, out of order and are so disrespectful... Its unbelievable...!

Heed my call ladies & gents let's flood sites like NEWS24 & let's let them know who we...!
@CJB Ramses III
I echo your sentiments fellow African. However this will not aid our struggle in the least. NEWS24 is elitist company that is run by the DA. Look into their organisational structure and you will see that this racist, CT based company I serious about putting black people down. And it’s sad that all the comments written on any article are filtered from the inside.
Whenever one of our African brotherssister tries to comment and giving clarity and restore parity on a subject. Their comments are either muzzled or they don’t appear on the article (Just like my comments never appear). So its clear that these people delete any comments that are pro-governmentANCBlacksZuma or anything progressive. They only want to hear what the white voices are saying.
I’ve since boycotted their website.

Don't be surprised in future to see Khune,Gould,Mathoho,Gaxa,Masilela,L.Baloyi,Yeye,Shaba,Parker,Majoro,G.Lebese next year in Brazil playing for Bafana Bafana KC is a team of quality .
And coached by Lord Stuart Baxter..
Im told in recent AFCON Sangweni scored more goals than all those selected from the zoo combined. In AFCON tap-ins can be hard to come by, its even worse with WC. If the prediction above were to occur I am tempted to say that we would come back after playing group stages with no goal
It still baffles me how in this day and age people don't understand soccer is not a one-man-sport.Fair enough, Siya scored vital goals, but equally the same, he let them in as well, what would you say on that one?

Gents, Khune saved a hell lot of ''goals'', Yeye created so many goal-scoring opportunities, uMlungu kept the team in shape, and gave them that discipline, but is it fair to say "Sangweni'' is better than the rest?

I rest my case..............
@Liesbeeck we waited the whole day 2 come back 2 this one but hey I guess u found yo rightful place after this one buccaneer.

Congrats Makhosi,,but u also have Khune to thank,,they guy is on top of his game..and if a keeper makes so many saves in one to one ssituations in one match, it says he is exposed a lot by his defence,,I'm just saying...
