Kaizer Chiefs and Maritzburg United draw 1-1

Posted: 3 April 2013 Time: 21:30

Maritzburg United held Kaizer Chiefs to a 1-1 draw at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Wednesday night, but Amakhosi maintain their seven-point lead atop the standings.

Mario Booysen’s goal early in the second half threw the cat amongst the pigeons, but Mulumowandau Mathoho equalised with 20 minutes to go to ensure a share of the spoils.

Bernard Parker had an opportunity to put Chiefs ahead as early as the seventh minute from a free-kick, but his goal-bound effort was comfortably saved by Shu-aib Walters.

Itumeleng Khune was called into action in the 15th minute, parrying Heinrich Isaacks’ deflected shot when he switched direction to push away the goal-bound effort.

The Bafana Bafana captain again kept the scores level three minutes later with a spectacular save to keep out Ruben Cloete’s long-range effort.

Maritzburg took the lead just after the break when Chiefs failed to clear the ball from a set-piece and the ball rebounded off Morgan Gould and towards the goalline. As the defender tried to clear the ball it fell into the path of Booysen, who slotted home from close range.

With about 20 minutes remaining the league leaders levelled matters from a corner-kick – Mathoho rising highest to power home a header beyond the reach of a back-peddling Walters.

There were a few half-chances towards the end of the game - including Cuthbert Malajila just missing a cross for a sure goal - but the two sides settled for a point which not only maintains Chiefs’ seven-point lead (thanks to Orlando Pirates drawing away to AmaZulu), but also win the Q3 award.

What a scrappy game......

Keegan Ricthie did not offer us anything......
Gaxa should make way for Moleko
Yeye needs to rest....Baloyi to step in
Parker should not play on the right wing....we are wasting his abilities.....he needs to be upfront.

The 5.4.1 formation is not needed in our next game......4.4.2 is needed

Good results for us.......

Eish Makhosi that Maritzburg goal. Shi*t. That was so unlucky. I have come to accept that this Maritzburg team is our bogey team. We never seem to get it right against this team.

But that Mathoho header. Eish, what a rocket header.

Um not happy Khosi nation truth be told in the interest of our team s goodwill this Gould is costing us in most occasions. It is only that we love him but he is lil bit a robot, most of the time he doesn't assess the risk of kicking every time he want to kick

Eish Khosi, I have to agree. Gould is a problem, I hope Mathoho is not too bad so he can partner Masha in our next game. 3 games in a row Gould is just lost man. Even Gaxa is better and believe me I rate Gaxa very low...

Guys this Nkhatha guy is useless. Yes, he does score goals but boy this guy is useless when it comes to ball control. he breaks down our attacking moves with his wayward passes.His decision making is non existent. Most of the time he doesn't know what to do with the ball. Baxter must start with Majoro in the next game.

Yeye, Gould, Gaxa.. These solders must be rested till further notice

Anyway, I am still smiling whilst mice are heart broken after their 50th draw in a row,LOL.

I have come to the conclusion that even if we loose all our remaining games, mice will never catch us cause they play crap. They were completely outplayed by Amazulu and Tuks, and will get a serious hiding from clowns..
