Gould back for Chiefs draw

Morgan Gould made a return to the pitch as Kaizer Chiefs drew 1-1 with Angolan Clube Desportivo Primeiro de Agosto in a friendly match at Naturena yesterday.
Primeiro de Agosto are currently second on the Angolan Championship table, and are preparing for their CAF Champions League campaign.
Keegan Ritchie opened the scoring in the first half with a fantastic free-kick, and Siyabonga Nkosi, Kingston Nkhatha and Sthembiso Ngcobo all had chances on goal.
Mulomowandau Mathoho, Tefu Mashamaite, Kgotso Moleko and Gould – who came on as a substitute – acquitted themselves well, but the visitors forced a draw in the second half.
Gould has been out for months after an operation on his Achilles tendon. The Bafana Bafana defender made a couple of appearances in the reserve league recently, and Amakhosi fans will be relieved as he moves closer to full fitness.
Stuart Baxter also called on George Lebese and Mandla Masango, and is reportedly pleased with his team’s performance.
