Match report: Platinum Stars draw with Chippa United

Posted: 20 April 2013 Time: 17:02

High-flying Platinum Stars were held to a 1-1 draw by relegation-threatened Chippa United on Saturday afternoon.

Dikwena led early through Robert Ng’ambi, who also hit the crossbar late on, but were pegged back by a goal from Andile Mbenyane, whick keeps the visitors’ hopes of surviving the drop alive.

Stars are now three points behind leaders Kaizer Chiefs but have played a game more, while Chippa are three points from the safety of 14th place, but have also played a game more than Ajax Cape Town.

Ng’ambi put Stars ahead inside four minutes when he headed home a free-kick from Thuso Phala.

Dikwena might have had a penalty too when Rudiger Gilbert appeared to foul Lindokuhle Mbatha in the box, but referee Daniel Bennett waved play on.

A few minutes later Benjani Mwaruwari forced debutante Stars goalkeeper Kabelo Dambe into a fine save, while at the other end Phala had a shot cleared off the line by Vuyisile Ntombayithethi.

Chippa equalised midway through the second half and it was a soft goal to concede from the home side’s point of view.

William Twala’s cross from the right found an unmarked Mbenyane and he had the simplest of headers to bring Chippa level.

Ng’ambi was inches away from restoring the home side’s lead when he connected with Vuyo Mere’s cross, but his header came back off the crossbar, while Mogakolodi Ngele fired wide with the last chance of the game.

Both teams will be involved in crunch clashes next up: Stars travel to League leaders Kaizer Chiefs on April 28, while Chippa have a relegation six-pointer against Ajax Cape Town the day before.

As much as u zebras jump up n down like mokeys, the motaungs don't consider u, u dnt exist to them. If chiefs wins the league; its always bobby's, jesicow, kaizer jnr n snr's victory. They always hv a separate celebration, as a family. Bucs fam; see u in orlando.

Plate Ya Nama undermined Chippa. They scored early and players thought it would be a walkover. I was behind them but disappointed me, thus they must forget about the lig and concetrate on the nedbank. Now, I shift my support back to Rats. M.A.K.A.K.A.N.E.Y.A should pull up their socks. I don't want the wild donkeys winning anything this season. Swallows must beat the hell out of zebras.
No comment as results speak for themselves, but I must say I am worried about your health. We have beaten the hell out of Swallows...hehehehehehe
