Chiefs and City share the points
Wednesday, November 30, 2016

Kaizer Chiefs and Cape Town City played to a one-all draw in an entertaining Absa Premiership match at FNB Stadium on Tuesday evening. Amakhosi took the lead in the third minute thanks to Michelle Katsvairo with the visitors equalising in the second half. It was a spirited performance from Chiefs, which had to play with ten men from the 28th minute due to a red-card for Sibusiso Khumalo.

Steve Komphela had to make two changes to Chiefs’ starting line-up in comparison with the SuperSport United clash. Both came as a result of injuries to Erick Mathoho and Tsepo Masilela.

Daniel Cardoso partnered Lorenzo Gordinho in the centre of defence, while Sibusiso Khumalo came in at left-back.

Cape Town City entered this game on a high, as their win over Free State Stars in the weekend meant that The Citizens reached the final of the Telkom Knockout.

However, they soon got a wake-up call as Amakhosi had a brilliant start to the match, getting 1-0 up already in the third minute.

George Maluleka had a forceful shot at goal with the ball changing direction thanks to Michelle Katsvairo’s touch. As a result of this, City’s goalkeeper went the wrong way and the ball flew past him in the back of the net. It was the Zimbabwean’s second league goal.

Chiefs continued to create chances, even though it didn’t result in any more goals in the first half.

George Maluleka had again an excellent game in midfield, while Edmore Chirambadare entertained the crowd with his dribbling.

City started to play better the longer the game went on, creating a few chances. But Itumeleng Khune was always alert in goal.

There was, however, a major set-back for the home side when Sibusiso Khumalo was sent off for a reckless tackle on Thamsanqa Mkhize in the 28th minute.

Still, Amakhosi continued to play well and, despite a man down, created a few goalscoring opportunities.

The score at halftime was 1-0.

After the break, Cape Town City tried to go for the equaliser, but Chiefs’ defence looked well organised, despite being without Khumalo. In particular, Ramahlwe Mphahlele had a tremendous game.

But there was nothing that could be done about Matthew Sim’s powerful drive at goal in the 53th minute. Goalkeeper Khune had no chance, as the ball also changed directlion slightly as it touched Gordinho.

Not long thereafter Khune sustained an injury. He tried to continue after some treatment by the physio, but the goalkeeper eventually had to be replaced by Brilliant Khuzwayo in the 67th minute. It was the first action time Khuzwayo got this season in an official match.

In the end, no more goals were scored.

Amakhosi have now booked 17 points from 11 games.

Chiefs next face Chippa United on the road in an Absa Premiership match at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Saturday, 3 December (kick-off is at 18:00).
