PSL match report: AmaZulu v Kaizer Chiefs

Posted: 22 December 2013 Time: 14:17

Kaizer Chiefs put four past AmaZulu in the second half to extend their lead at the top of the table.

Siyabonga Nkosi netted a brace and Knowledge Musona and Bernard Parker also got on the scoresheet, while Kulegani Madondo scored a consolation goal for Usuthu in stoppage time.

Musona had a great chance to open the scoring in the fifth minute when he was played through by Kingston Nkhatha, but his shot was parried wide by Tapuwa Kapini.

In the 12th minute Parker latched onto a long ball from Siphiwe Tshabalala on the left but his low strike went narrowly wide of the far post.

Musona then headed over the bar from Tshabalala's corner in the 22nd minute, while Njabulo Manqana shot wide of the upright at the other end four minutes later.

Chiefs had the last two chances of the half, with Parker firing against the post in the 29th minute, before Tshabalala's long range effort sailed just over the crossbar in the 41st minute.

Amakhosi threatened again in the first minute of the second half as Musona found Nkosi unmarked on the left, but his shot was blocked by Kapini.

The resulting corner caused more problems for the hosts as Nkhatha's header was cleared off the line by Madondo, while Parker struck the crossbar from the rebound.

Usuthu were also denied twice in quick succession in the 52nd minute with Ayanda Dlamini and Msekeli Mvalo both saw their shots blocked by Chiefs defenders.

The opening goal eventually arrived three minutes later as Nkosi fired past Kapini from outside the box after receiving a pass from Tshabalala.

Chiefs doubled their lead in the 61st minute with Musona burying the rebound after Tshabalala's shot was parried into his path by Kapini.

Usuthu also created an opening in the 67th minute, when Ayanda Dlamini's cross found Nkosinathi Mthiyane's in the box, but he sent his header over the crossbar.

The visitors scored their third of the match in the 80th minute with Parker chipping the ball past Kapini after the goalkeeper was unable to hold on to a shot from Nkhatha.

Substitute Sthembiso Ngcobo almost pulled one goal back four minutes later when he met Ayanda Dlamini's cross at the near post but his header struck the upright.

Chiefs extended their lead even further in the 86th minute when Nkosi poked the ball past Kapini after he was slipped through by Musona.

Usuthu did eventually find the back of the net in the fourth minute of added time as Madondo's shot had the better of Itumeleng Khune following a wicked deflection from Mthiyane.

That's just a temporary jubilations. Come next year we'll be back where we belong, top the log and eventually clinch the lig. With Pitso or no Pitso, we have to crush these zebras then other remaining teams will just be a walk in the park. Just warm up that seat for now.

Baxter should instill the "Kill and Destroy" mentality.....We should not be linient to minnows.....Games like today's one are not for points only, but to increase the number of our goal tally which comes handy at the end of the season.....Players like Musona and Shabba (at times) should not go for personal glory at the expense of the team........Good game Boo-Target Nkhatha, Parker , Nkosi............The less said about Katsande the better....

I so wish Golden Arrows to be relegated so that Pirates won't be guaranteed 6 Points every Season and a Ticket to the next round of every Competition.

Makhosi this Katsande dude has no brains fro football. He is just a non thinking robotic player who doesn't deserve to play for the biggest club in the land and beyond. Bobby must just give this savange a free clearance. Katsande can't think. Period.

Whether he is on a yellow the guy will not change his approach. Ag maan , mina I've had enough of this guy.

Let the "chasing" pack chase. Makhosi will keep collecting 3 points game after game. We shall win this thing with 10 games to spare while the others fight for the 2nd position. Khosi 4 eva.
