Chiefs record second successive win

Kaizer Chiefs continued to mend their tattered season with a morale-boosting 1-0 victory over Free State Stars in a Castle Premier League clash at the Charles Mopeli Stadium on Saturday.

Zimbabwean international Luke Petros secured the precious three points for the visitors with a strike in the 20 minute for the clash's only goal.

The visitors were boosted by the return of regular and inspirational captain and goalkeeper Brian Baloyi after his return from national duty in Mali.

Chiefs were also buoyed by a hard-fought 1-0 win over Golden Arrows in midweek, and knew that another win could begin to redefine their season.

Stars are not having the best of seasons but their home ground has been considered to be a difficult place for visiting sides.

Chiefs showed glimpses of their former awesome selves when they took control of proceedings from kick off with some crisp passing and managing to keep possession for longer spells.

The visitors went ahead in the 20th minute when Mozambican Jose Macamo went on a run on the left and then crossed to Petros who drove home with some authority.

Stars refused to give up the host and gave a spirited performance in the second half but found the Chiefs defence uncompromising.

The visitors on their part refused to relinquish their stranglehold on the match, and continued to play with new-found confidence, exhibiting signs of a renewal, suggesting that they are rediscovering their old form.

Amakhosi will be hoping that this is the start of a good run that could see them mount a late assault of the title.
