Ajax Cape Town beat Kaizer Chiefs in League match

Posted: 1 May 2013 Time: 18:59

A brace from Lebogang Manyama and a goal from Mabhuti Khenyeza handed Kaizer Chiefs their second Premiership loss of the season on Wednesday as the Urban Warriors ran out 3-1 winners at a packed Cape Town Stadium.

Ajax, while not in the game in the opening half hour had the first shot on goal via Khama Billiat in the second minute, but Itumeleng Khune made a fine save to turn his 22-yard effort over the crossbar.

After that, however, it was all Chiefs and they should really have taken the lead in the 22nd minute when Siphiwe Tshabalala worked his way into the box and towards the left by-line before cutting the ball back for an unmarked George Lebese. The Chiefs man, though, squandered the chance as he fluffed his shot wide from a couple yards out.

Chiefs were stunned in the 35th minute as a long ball caught them unaware as Billiat latched onto the ball and then played a well-timed pass to Manyama who showed real class to chip a charging Khune, 1-0.

Chiefs went into the break trailing despite controlling the majority of the match.

The second 45 saw the Amakhosi with the lion’s share of possession, but they struggled to break down the Ajax defence in open play.

It took a well-worked set piece to see Chiefs draw level in the 78th minute when Tefu Mashamaite met a Siphiwe Tshabalala corner with a deadly header, 1-1.

Chiefs pressed for the winner, thereafter, but their joy was short lived as Manyama restored the home side’s lead three minutes from time.

The Ajax attacker grabbed his second goal of the game after heading home a right wing cross from six-yards out, 2-1.

Mabhuti Khenyeza added the icing on the cake and confirmed the result as he beat Khune in a one-on-one situation in the 92nd minute to make the score 3-1.

It's not all lost Khosi. We are still marching on. Khosi let's be mature about it and let us not insult or blame our players, that will only make our enemies happy. Let's support the boys and our tech team. We can't win them all. It's not easy to swallow this loss especially coming from the draws that we had where we could have easily won. But let us be calm and support the boys. We need them in good spirit in the next game. Let's show them the team spirit(Players, fans, management, tech team). Thanks Khosi

I said our loss to Chippa meant Ajax will be on steroids and what is a 7 point gap will be reduced to 4 points after we pulverize Sundowns and I was insulted.

After Chiefs play SuperSport and we play our 29th game that 4 point gap will be reduced to 1 point. No one owes Chiefs 3 points and for them to get them they must work harder than they have all season

Now this loss by Chiefs will make some fools believe that their teams are back in the mix. I still believe that can still win the lig even if they lose all their remaining games. I just don't see PS winning all their remaining games.as for Chiubuku FC the less said about them the better.

Sh***t! We were humbled today. Today's game was lost from the bench. Why bench Nkosi n include that useless Lebese. Parker should have been substituted he was nowhere to be seen. These guys need to realise that someone need to step up, it can't always be left to Tshabalala to carry the team. If truth be told, we didn't pitch up. They were only there for celebration purposes, damn!
