Mayo: The red card killed Chiefs


Club legend Patrick Mayo believes ill-discipline is costing Kaizer Chiefs as the Soweto giants eye a win against Swallows FC in a crucial DStv Premiership clash.

Midfielder Cole Alexander received a second yellow card in the 60th minute as Stuart Baxter's side were reduced to ten men.

The booking proved costly as Usuthu levelled in the 76th minute as they made their numerical advantage count.

"There's improvement and we are progressing now if you can look back from the Maritzburg United match," Mayo tells

"The red card cost us. I think if we didn't get that red card AmaZulu would have not been able to equalise.

"So they capitalised on the advantage of having one extra person but otherwise clear improvements are there.

"There are three results in football. A draw, a loss and a win. So, people have to accept the draw.

"Although if we won, it could have improved our position on the log, then again we are playing against teams that are in need of points.

"So the AmaZulu game was not easy. I would say a draw was a fair result because they even scored an own goal."

Baxter's side will be hoping for an improvement in performance and in their disciplinary record in their next league encounter.

The Soweto giants face an away clash to Swallows FC at Dobsonville Stadium on Sunday.

Kick-off is at 15:30.
