Kaizer Chiefs and Platinum Stars draw 0-0

Posted: 28 April 2013 Time: 16:53

The highly-anticipated top-of-the-table clash between Kaizer Chiefs and Platinum Stars failed to deliver as the two sides played out to a goalless draw.

Still, it's a point that takes Amakhosi ever closer to a first title since 2004/05 - they remain six points clear of second-placed Dikwena with just three matches remaining.

However, if third-placed Orlando Pirates win their game in hand the lead will be cut to just four points.

Chiefs started the brighter and had two early chances through Siphiwe Tshabalala and Bernard Parker, but both shot wide.

But Stars have been playing some amazing football this season and almost scored a goal to match when Henrico Botes attempted a cheeky back-heel which came back off the woodwork.

Parker then headed wide for Tshabalala’s corner-kick before Kingston Nkhatha squandered a glorious opportunity when put through one-on-one with Siya Mpontshane.

Stars hit the woodwork again just before the break when Benson Mhlongo followed up after Brilliant Khuzwayo – deputising for the suspended Itumeleng Khune – did well to parry Mogakolodi Ngele’s free-kick.

The young goalkeeper was having a game to remember, producing a brilliant save from Mhlongo’s close-range header.

Chiefs had a few opportunities towards the end of the match as first substitute Matthew Rusike was denied by Mpontshane, before Siboniso Gaxa fired across the face of goal in the dying minutes.

Chiefs next face struggling Ajax in Cape Town on Wednesday, while Stars host Maritzburg United in Rustenburg.

We lost 4 points, our technical team was just playing for a draw hence a poor second half display...why play LEBESE in such a game instead of going with DLADLA? the worst thing is missing sitters like those our players did in the first half!!!

I think its time for experience, Lebese should make way for the big boys & I think for thr 1st time Baxter blundered by not throwing in Majoro there. And Yeye should have came in for Nkosi later.
