AmaZulu unlucky to lose to Chiefs

AmaZulu were bitterly unlucky to lose 2-1 to Kaizer Chiefs in an Absa Premiership match at the Moses Mabhida stadium on Wednesday night.

Chiefs were fortunate to get the win on Wednesday night as a 94th minute goal from George Lebese saw them come from a goal behind to claim the three points.

Bongani Ndulula opened the scoring after a rather strange incident of events in the 22nd minute.

Initially, a 18-yard shot from Hlanti struck the left hand post, the rebound was followed up by a Gloodman Dlamini shot from the edge of the box, but Khuzwayo produced a good stop only to see Ndulula tap home the second rebound from 14-yards out, 1-0.

Chiefs had the lion’s share of possession throughout the game, but some solid defending from AmaZulu really saw them unable to create any decent chances on goal.

Nonetheless, the Amakhosi persisted and stepped up the pressure in the second half which saw them finally draw level on the 60 minute mark.

Lebese scored his first of two goals on the night when he volleyed home from 20-yards out into the corner of the net, 1-1.

Chiefs continued to press for the winner after that and just as they game looked to be ending all-square, a 94th minute goal handed the Amakhosi the win.

Siphiwe Tshabalala struck a 24-yard free-kick that hit the crossbar and Lebese was quickest to react to tap the ball home from a couple of yards out, 2-1.

The win sees Chiefs up 28 points on the league table with nine wins and one draw from their first ten league games.

AmaZulu, on the other hand, are still rooted to the bottom of the table with four points from their ten games, and are still without a win.

    The club is in a very bad position in the log. Kapini is the weak link at the back, please do not play him. Also Bring back uMkhukhu – Neil Tovey if you want to move up the log table and get at least a cup within the next two years.
