What’s the story?

In what was a curtain-raiser for the upcoming 2021/22 PSL season, Chiefs and Orlando Pirates gave fans the first taste of the new campaign in the Carling Black Label Cup.

Traditionally, the showpiece is known for being a low scoring game, with the 2021 instalment ending 0-0 after 90 minutes. The 2021 CBL Cup, which returned for the first time since 2019, thus went to penalties, which had Chiefs supporters buzzing for one reason.

   

Fans Favourite

Fans voted Itumeleng Khune in the starting XI ahead of the game, however, the veteran was replaced in the second half as Brandon Peterson made his debut as the latest Glamour Boy between the sticks.

Peterson was summoned into action late in the second half with a save to deny Pirates, as he nailed the first impressions test. However, it was in the penalty shootout where a smiling Peterson grabbed the attention of the Amakhosi fan base.

 

New Star Man

With Chiefs winning via spot-kicks on the night, Peterson walked away as the hero as the former Ajax Cape Town star managed to make two spectacular saves as Khune watched on from the stands later on in the tie.    

Here’s how the supporters reacted to Peterson’s performance:
