PSL match report: University of Pretoria vs Kaizer Chiefs

Posted: 18 May 2013 Time: 16:52

Thabo Mosadi scored to hand University of Pretoria a win over Kaizer Chiefs, who will receive the Premiership trophy after the match in a few minutes.

Amakhosi had a blistering start, and the better of the chances in the first half, but Kingston Nkhatha was woeful in front of goal.

The first real chance fell to AmaTuks in the 11th minute, when Aubrey Ngoma broke free down the left and fed Mame Niang in the box, but the Senegalese appeared clueless as he was surrounded by a few Chiefs defenders, and he lost possession as Chiefs cleared the danger.

In the 15th minute, Chiefs had their chance as Siphiwe Tshabalala put in a cross that hit a Tuks defender and fell into Nkhatha's path but he shot high.

10 minutes later, the Zimbabwean striker was put through on goal by Bernard Parker. Again, he could not capitalise and tried to slide the ball past his countryman Washington Arubi, but the latter was equal to the task.

In the 32nd minute, Nkhatha once again had a chance to score and again he failed in his attempt.

Tshabalala played a great cross in but the former Black Leopards striker mistimed his attempt, despite having acres of space, much to Josta Dladla's dismay. 'JD' appeared to confront Nkhatha for missing yet another chance.

On the stroke of half-time, Dladla had a penalty appeal, claiming to have been pushed, but it was turned down by referee Thando Nzandzeka.

The score at half-time was 0-0.

After the break, Nkhatha had the ball in the net but he was flagged offside.

The frustration was telling on the marksman's face and he was shortly given a yellow card for a foul.

AmaTuks took the lead in the 59th minute when substitute Thabo Mosadi beat the Chiefs defenders for pace to score past Itumeleng Khune.

In the 75th minute, Aubrey Ngoma outpaced Keegan Ritchie in a counter-attack situation, but Khune came off his line to make a block.

Barely five minutes later, Khune had to save Chiefs again as he blocked Ayanda Lubelo's attempt in a one-on-one situation after the latter was put through.

Towards the end, Kaizer Motaung Jnr replaced Tshabalala, who was forced off through injury. Motaung Jnr almost made an immediate impact but his overhead kick was saved by Arubi, and the match finished 1-0.

It is easy to analyze a finished game and start making what-if analysis was if the events are independent. As much as I am not happy for finishing a with a loss, I am happy that we planned much ahead for the pressure in the last league games. Some are saying "had platinum won this or that game". But the truth is that, with a proper planning and knowing ourselves, we manages to clinched the championship. Some teams like supersport, are early starters and that's how they won the league. We followed the same strategy and it worked. Platinum also failed under pressure: they lost nedbank cup final, lost the race when it matters most.

It's like at varsity, some started studying early and performed well to get decent year mark. At the end they didn't need much work to pass the course. In fact our loss today and even against Ajax only disappointed our own standard not Pierats'.

very boring season after long time , Chiefs won the league but they did not sweat for it , other teams did the job for them , just imagine what would have happened if P Stars collected three points against Arrows ? We will see next season if they can defend their title . Supersport will beat them next week in Nedbank final . They were luck to win this league
