Chiefs sneak past unlucky Leopards

Posted: 23 February 2014 Time: 14:56

Kaizer Chiefs were made to sweat for their place in the last 16 of the Nedbank Cup as they beat Black Leopards 1-0 at Peter Mokaba Stadium on Sunday.

Knowledge Musona’s goal in the 110th minute of the match was the difference between the two sides.

There was an early chance for the home team to go in front with just five minutes on the clock.

David Zulu’s shot from just six-yards out on goal was deflected wide by a Chiefs defender with Chiefs keeper Brilliant Khuzwayo looking beaten.

Chiefs defender Tefu Mashamaite could have given his side the lead in the 30th minute when he was at the end of a well worked free-kick.

The tall Chiefs defender met George Maluleka’s cross at the back post and unleashed a powerful shot with his left foot that brought the best out of Leopards keeper Jacob Mokhasi.

Leopards dominated most of the match and poor decisions in the final third cost them as they let Chiefs off the hook on numerous occasions.

Five minutes before the end of the match Karabo Tshepe tested Khuzwayo when a Chiefs defenders retreated and allowed him space - he cracked a long range shot which Khuzwayo spectacularly finger tipped over the bar.

The match went into extra time and that was where the experience of Chiefs paid off over their National First Division opponents.

With just ten minutes remaining in the match Leopards shot themselves in the foot with an error at the back.

After a miscue from a Leopards defender the ball fell into the path of Tshabalala who then found Musona and the Zimbabwean international fired a shot past Mokhasi for the winning goal.

Chiefs: Khuzwayo, Gaxa, Gould, Mashamaite, Mtsweni, Katsande, Maluleka (Letsholonyane 66’), Tshabalala, Lebese, Nkosi (Rusike 87’), Mphela (Musona 65’)

Leopards: Mokhasi, Manaka, Mabotja (Ramodumo 102’), Munganga, Nyirenda, Munyai, Mumuni, Tshepe, Ntshangase (Ndebele 86’), Ndou (Amidu 69’), Zulu

Zebras new signings didn't have much impact, especially Maluleka.

Chiefs is being outplayed today , Why replace Mphela when George Lebese who is too much of a sissy is on the fiels . The boy is lazy , he does not mark and he is soooooo easily disposed but u keep him on the field for so long ,why Mr Coach , why ?

Zebras only need one goal to finish this but they are not creating enough chances, these boys are keeping them on their toes and if Leopards scores one now its over for Zebras.

George Lebese is a liability to the team must go on loan not only in this game but he does not take responsibility when losing the ball.

La Coste (Khosi by Birth) Thanks Khosi lam. Ive said it before. George is a liability. The boy is a sissy. He only plays when he is unmarked. He cant challenge for the ball. When he looses it, he doesn't show that sence of urgency.

He needs to go to the bench man..."Mzimba shaker" can do better.
