Chiefs register first win of the season


After three games in the Absa Premier League Chiefs have finally registered a win in an emphatic fixture against Cape Town City on Thursday evening.

It was a thrilling encounter that saw City lose by two goals to none as they tried pressing Chiefs from the start to the end. In the first half it was more of a midfield battle as both teams could not have sufficient shots at goal.

City looked the more comfortable on the ball but suffered a loss in the replacement of Teko Modise who succumbed to a groin injury after 17 minutes. Bhongolwethu Jayiya came close to scoring in the 34th minute but his shot hit the post.

Chiefs broke the deadlock two minutes into the second half, as Tshabalala showed great composure to fire into the bottom corner from 12 yards out. City looked to hit back in the 57th minute through a close range shot by Masina but Khune made a great save.

Lehlohonolo Majoro almost got the better of a rejuvenated looking Khune in the 67th minute but the shot stopper made a double save to deny him.

Chiefs then put the nail to the coffin when they broke in the 81st minute and Gorge Maluleka gave a through ball to the 17 years old Meyiwa to calmly place the ball in the bottom left of the net.

Chiefs move to 9th position on the log with four points from three games played.
