Mamelodi Sundowns Kaizer Chiefs PSL

Posted: 23 January 2014 Time: 18:42

Kaizer Chiefs won their seventh successive game and went eight points clear at the top of the table after a 1-0 victory over Mamelodi Sundowns on Thursday evening at Loftus Stadium.

Downs were left to rue a twist of misfortune when Wayne Arendse turned the ball into the back of his own net in the first half, before seeing Surprise Moriri’s late goal ruled out for offside.

Stuart Baxter handed George Maluleka his competitive debut by including him in the starting line-up, while Siphiwe Tshabalala was rested on the bench.

Kick-off started half an hour later due to the amount of people coming into the stadium which resulted in a capacity crowd.

The Brazilians showed their ambition with their counter-attacks from the first whistle and they needed just two minutes to rattle the woodwork with a long-range screamer by Teko Modise. The midfielder’s effort struck the upright of Itumeleng Khune’s goal, bounced down and rolled out for a corner-kick.

But it was Chiefs who took the lead in the ninth minute from their first attack of the game. Arendse was booked for a free-kick he conceded on the edge of the box, and it was from that set-piece that the goal came.

Bernard Parker struck in a curling effort into the box which bounced to ground, struck the foot of the former Santos man and rolled into the back of the net.

Katlego Mashego came close to making it 1-1 in the 16th minute with his shot inside the area, but Khune dropped down quickly to gather the ball after initially making the save with his feet.

Parker then saw his angled right-footed drive sail narrowly over, while Morgan Gould was lucky not to be handed his marching orders in the 35th minute when he elbowed Bongani Zungu in the face.

Chiefs nearly doubled their scoreline five minutes before the interval when a counter-attack saw a cross supplied in to Knowledge Musona. The Zimbabwean turned on the ball and sliced his effort narrowly wide.

Sundowns came out again dominating possession after the break and ten minutes into the second 45 they did well to test Khune.

Mashego delivered a great freekick towards the back post. It was kept alive by Alje Schut who threaded it through to Anthony Laffor, but Khune dropped down low to make the save.

Pitso Mosimane’s men thought they had got the equaliser when Surprise Moriri tapped in a cross from three-yards only to see it ruled out for offside with just seven minutes remaining.

Shorty afterwards substitute Cuthbert Malajila shot over from three yards out for what will surely be a frontrunner for miss of the season as the Brazilians were made to pay for their missed opportunities.

Brian Mathe we know you hate Chiefs, so stop pronouncing ref decisions because you cannot be objective.

That was a crucial save by Khune, the bicycle kick by the Sundowns skipper.
