Kaizer Chiefs collected maximum points when they defeated a lacklustre Bush Bucks 1-0 in a Premier Soccer League match played at the Absa Stadium in East London on Wednesday.

The teams were deadlocked at the break but Chiefs scored the winner in the 55th minute when Arthur Zwane put in a brilliant volley.

Bucks, who were outclassed in every department by Chiefs, dearly felt the absence of the Mugeyi twins, Wilfred and William.

After a dull first half Chiefs coach Mushin Ertugral made a double substitution trying to change the complexion of the game when he brought in Zwane and Petros Jukulile for an out of sorts Kenny Niemach and Stanton Fredericks respectively.

Zwane, the goalscorer in Chiefs' BT Top Eight win over Sundowns, made his presence felt, forcing a shaky Bucks defence into making a host of unforced errors.

Zwane forced Bucks goalkeeper Arthur Bartman to make a breathtaking save when defelecting a fierce drive for a corner-kick in the 52nd minute.

Three minutes later, Zwane scored the winning goal, when he connected with a superb volley from the edge of the box.

Malawian international Patrick Mabedi had a chance to double the score but he missed a penalty after Marvin Klaasen handled a Jabu Pule cross in the box.

Referee Petros Mathabela had no choice to point to the spot in the 66th minute.

Bucks rarely threatened Chiefs second choice goalkeeper Rowen Fernandez but had a chance in the 76th minute but the former Wits keeper easily saved from Dennis Masina.
