Premier Soccer League match report Bidvest Wits 0-0 Kaizer Chiefs

Posted: 23 April 2014 Time: 18:31

Kaizer Chiefs' fate in the title race is no longer in their hands after drawing 0-0 with Bidvest Wits at Bidvest Stadium on Wednesday night.

The result means log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns - who are five points richer than Chiefs having played an extra game - can claim Premiership honours if they win their remaining two matches.

Wits, in third spot, are effectively out of contention.

In an evenly contested tie, the visitors threatened early on, as Siphiwe Tshabalala and George Lebese flashed shots wide before Kingston Nkhatha drilled a useful effort straight at Moeneeb Josephs in the opening 10 minutes.

Gavin Hunt's men, though, nearly replied with interest five minutes later, as Sthembiso Ngocbo's low strike on the angle required a fine save from Amakhosi skipper Itumeleng Khune.

At the other end, Bernard Parker curled a free-kick on target midway through the opening stanza but Josephs was perfectly placed to punch clear.

The Clever Boys, who looked dangerous on the counter, came agonisingly close to netting minutes before the interval, but Ngcobo's header clipped the top of the crossbar off a Jabulani Shongwe corner.

Parker had the last chance of the half but his low shot on the turn was scooped up by the watchful Josephs.

The Students were denied by the woodwork again in the 49th minute, as Asive Langwe's first-time attempt rattled the upright, while Ngcobo later had an effort chalked out for offside.

The Glamour Boys then wasted two great opportunities in quick succession just past the hour-mark, as Nkhatha volleyed over from close range before Lebese failed to connect inside the area.

Chiefs substitute Katlego Mphela almost snatched a last-minute winner but the former Bafana Bafana star headed a Tshabalala cross against the goal-frame.

Sundowns fans are beginning to live or feel like us and that is a sign of danger.We at one stage felt like we won it after going 9 straight wins.We heard from most of them that football is a funny game and is unpredictable.

We did not want to hear a word but now we know it is true.They have taken it from us with a belief that it is in the bag forgetting the two hoodoo clubs they still have to beat this season.

We are saying if you win it we will congratulate you,but for now football is still unpredictable and indeed a funny game.

We thought and felt the same way and it will last for as long as it last.

I like it as it is. These zEbras should get nothing this season so that they can learn soccer. They 've been making a lot of bad noise against us Bhakaniyas, now they must just get prepared to compare who performed better this season between us and them.

KhosiKrazy  Spoken like a true sports man.


We still have to win our remaining games in order to get the league title.


Most of us are overzealous at the moment but we need to trade with caution.

The yellow machine remain humble, just like what our coach has said, we know the nature of football but at the same time take our form into cognisance. The leaque is ours to loose now and are determined not to loose it. The more the Khosi family wish we slumber and fall the more we gain strength, the GOD we serve is a rewarding GOD. Our President is a generous man and the Glory will shine on him. Kaboyellowwwwwwww

KhosiKrazy, you sound right but i think it's little bit late though for KC to hope for Sundowns to drop the 2 remaining matches given that Chiefs will also win their matches. It's only 9 points available for KC and 6 for Sundowns unlike what happened to KC and Sun with many games still to play.
