Chiefs kept the pressure on the hosts and were rewarded with another goal when Mduduzi Nyandeni beat the ofside trap and past Ajax goalkeeper Jody February to make it 2-1. 

Hendrick Ekstein made it 3-1 just before half-time when he received a defence-splitting pass from Siboniseni Ngcobo to make it 3-1.

Noah Sadaoui forced a save out of Chiefs goalkeeper Mulovhedzi Shandukani before Chiefs rounded off a great performance with a goal from substitute David Grewan in the 81minute. 

Chiefs has a chance make it 5-1 when defender Lorenzo Gordinho pushed forward from the back and found himself one-on-one, but he pulled his shot wide. 

The home side were awarded a penalty in the 90th minute when Clifford Mulenga was brought down in side the box by Gordinho, allowing Sadaoui to net from the spot.
