Kaizer Chiefs slump to Santos defeat

Posted: 10 November 2010 Time: 21:30

Kaizer Chiefs’ unbeaten record in the Absa Premiership came to a surprise end at the Rand Stadium on Wednesday evening as they lost 1-0 to Santos.

The People’s Team deployed a conservative approach for much of the match, but stole the points on with a late goal from Sekou Camara.

The first half produced little in the way of goalmouth action or scoring chances, though Chiefs came closest to breaking the deadlock when Siphiwe Tshabalala rattled the crossbar with a 20-metre free-kick in the 15th minute.

Reneilwe Letsholonyane was the main orchestrator in midfield for Chiefs and wasn’t afraid to try his luck with long-range shots, such as in the 35th minute when he fired a low, left-footed effort just wide.

As the first half began to wind down, Santos slowly began to come to life, though the most they could offer in attack was a Tyren Arendse shot that flashed wide of Itumeleng Khune’s left-hand upright.

In the second half Santos upped their game significantly, looking a lot more composed and comfortable.

Yet it was still Chiefs who were creating the better opportunities and Letsholonyane twice came close with long-range shots, stinging the palms of Tshepo Motsoeneng in the 76th minute and firing a fierce effort just wide less than 60 seconds later.

On 85 minutes a Santos counter-attack produced the best scoring chance of the game, but Graham King fired wide of the target with only Khune to beat, though the keeper deserved credit for rushing off his line to put the midfielder under pressure.

Yet if Santos thought their time to win the game had passed, they were wrong. Just two minutes later a corner-kick routine saw Musa Otieno head back across the penalty area from the far post and, after Chiefs had failed to clear the ball, Camara pounced to score the winning goal with a powerful header.

Listen to them they will complain about Nkomazi oopps i mean Lebese penalty forgetting that Bobby asked the ref last week to give them a penalty against Free State Stars as they desperately need the moola. So cabbages get it through your skulls there was no penalty cos u got it last week.

I think it's good that we lost to Santos. Come Saturday the boys will play without any pressure. I have a strong feeling that the laws of averages are now on our side.

Pierats must be very worried. First, the incentive of being the first team to beat the Mighty Amakhosi is gone. So how is Krol gonna motiavte his average team ? I see us giving the rats a good hiding on Sat.

Eish, thank you Santos for beating us. This means a certain team will have to suffer the backlash this coming weekend. And again this means we are guaranteed to reach the finals of the Telkom Cup. Santos will not be lucky next time. And they know it.

Lucky Chiefs had to surrender their unbeaten record before they met us; it will make the loss to Pirates a little bit easier.

I feel sorry for Pierats. Their psychological advantage is all gone. The unbeaten pressure on the mighty KC is gone. Contrary to all the noise made during the week the Rats are an average outfit. We go into Saturday's match as "underdogs" and the rats would not like it.
