Chiefs extend premiership lead
by SAVIOUS KWINIKA
JOHANNESBURG – PACESETTERS Kaizer Chiefs have extended their unbeaten run to five as they thrashed visiting SuperSport United 2-0 in an exciting Absa premiership encounter played at FNB Stadium in Soweto on Saturday.
Amakhosi scored their crucial goals courtesy of the boots of Mandla Masango and Kingston Nkhatha to hand the Naturena football club the three vital points.
To date, Kaizer Chiefs have won all the five league matches thereby picking up 15 important points along the way as the Soweto giant lead the 16-Absa premiership league log standing.
Industrious midfielder, Willard Katsande was the cog of Kaizer Chiefs engine-room as he neutralised the SuperSport trio of Mor Diouf, Roscoe Pietersen and Dove Wome as he helped his Soweto giant keep clean record in recording five-out-five.
Elsewhere, former champions Orlando Pirates massacred Polokwane City 3-0 in a one sided league match played at Old Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane while Mpumalanga Black Aces were held to a goalless draw by visiting University of Pretoria at Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit, Mpumalanga.
Zimbabwe international, Patson Jaure, formerly of Dynamos Football Club featured for the first time for his Pretoria side as he kept a clean sheet in defence for the visitors.
Jaure was a marvel to watch for the University of Pretoria defence as he protected his goalminder Washington Arubi water-tightly while on the other hand overlapped upfront to support his front runners though lucky was not on their side.
In another draw, Free State Stars drew 1-1 with Maritzburg United at Goble Park in Bethlehem on Saturday.
