We dropped important points at FNB Stadium tonight against Kaizer Chiefs in a game that we could have closed off in the first half.
We looked composed at the beginning of the game, working the ball well and creating space and opportunities up front. This paid off in the 21st minute for us as Michael Gumede opened the scoring.
Chiefs responded just after the half hour mark as Manyama scored the first of his hat-trick off a well delivered low cross from Katsande.
We increased the pressure on the home side and just minutes before the break failed to score off two very well orchestrated opportunities.
After the break both sides seemed to be assessing the others change in game plans. Chiefs then started increasing their pressure and Cardoso blazed an opportunity over the bar.
We were gifted the lead once again in the 62nd minute as Mathoho deflected a free kick from Mutizwa into his own nets and once again equalising the score.
Manyama then collected his brace in the 73rd minute, equalising once again for the home side.
Bvuma did well to keep his side in contention for the win from there, making a number of telling saves in the plays that we took shots on target. They then sealed the win for themselves with 11 minutes left as Manyama scored his third for the night.
Even though the boys nver gave up until the final whistle, we were just not able to come back against Chiefs, dropping points in our last away game of the season.
The team will return to Durban and get into some serious preparation for our last game of the season against Stellenbosch FC on Saturday afternoon.
