After heading into the break with a 1-0 lead we conceded a goal in the 78th minute to share the spoils with Kaizer Chiefs at FNB Stadium tonight.
In a game that saw Chiefs attacking with every opportunity they had, we managed to open the scoring in the 33rd minute. Although we had less shots on target than our hosts, we managed to go ahead with just over 10 minutes left in the first half. Mathenjwa won the ball, did well to get a back pass to Sibiya who took his shot and beat the keeper to take the lead.
Chiefs were strong on the ball tonight. In the first half they had almost twice as many shots on target than we did. Mbaeva did well to defend his line and some great defending from Bilankulu, Mzava, Lunga and Sibisi saw us go into the break in a positive position.
Returning after the break, Chiefs continued to dominate possession of the ball as well as field position. We once again defended well and used our possession to push up in a structured fashion.
Kaizer Chiefs were unlucky and had a number of shots that hit the upright. Their luck changed in the 78th minute though when Moleko headed the ball in from a corner to equalise.
With 12 minutes left on the clock, it was evident that both sides were looking for the extra points. In the end though neither could find the mark again and a point a piece would be the reward for the nights efforts.
We return home to take on Free State Stars on Sunday. We return to Princess Magogo Stadium for the game and would like to call on as much support as possible in our second to last home game of the season.
