Kaizer Chiefs Bloemfontein Celtic Macufe Cup

Posted: 13 October 2013 Time: 17:09

Bloemfontein Celtic successfully defended the Macufe Cup with a 1-0 win over Kaizer Chiefs on Sunday.

Vuyani Ntanga scored from a free-kick in the first half to hand Celtic the win.

Stuart Baxter handed debut starts to Ivan Bukenya and Simphiwe Mtsweni.

Mandla Masango had the first chance of the match, a low shot that did not cause much trouble for Thembalethu Moses, who was given a rare start between the sticks for Celtic.

Matthew Rusike was next with an opportunity, but he took too much time in the box and Moses was able to collect.

Ntanga then made it 1-0 in the 24th minute with a free-kick just outside the box, after Wayde Jooste was brought down by Lucky Baloyi.

Celtic could have made it 2-0 a few minutes later, when Lerato Lamola beat the offside trap and went for goal, but Brilliant Khuzwayo – given a start in place of Itumeleng Khune – was quick off the mark to foil him.

Stuart Baxter brought on youngster Philani Cele and goalkeeper Reyaad Pieterse at the start of the second half.

Moses denied Chiefs an equaliser, saving from a Masango shot, before Siyabonga Nkosi hit his effort across goal.

With 15 minutes to go, Ntanga had another free-kick in a promising position, and curled it around the Chiefs wall, but Pieterse was able to collect easily.

Masango had yet another chance as the match wound down, but Moses pulled off a great save again to keep the Macufe Cup in the Free State.

Impressed by Bukenyas calmness on the ball and his distribution of the ball from the back, I don't care about his age as long as he can play. Mtsweni also played well. Also impressed by Philani Cele he came on and changed the complexion of the game, would like to see more of him even if he just makes the bench.

Sundowns 0 Celtics 0, the Telkom cup awarded to Celtics (it's strange). Sundowns 3 Celtics 1, Larsen blamed zebras and rats. Sundowns 4 Celtics 0, Larsen was fired. Downs keep clean sheet against Celtics. Congratulations Celtics for wining macufe cup. (cup ya ma planka. ke bone e tseya ke moya on the table).

dankie Celtic,Chiefs dnt have depth,if they think they will beef up their squad in Jan then they are mistaken,no club wants to part with their players in the middle of the season,and they must still play CCL.........................this will be the worst season for Amakhosi in their history,i forsee disaster.......................UP THE BUCS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 in Baxter I don't believe........I know some Khosi will criticize me on this but I'm entitled to my own opinion........this was a simple game that we should have won convincingly
