The win is Chiefs’ eighth in a row in the league and sees them ten points clear at the top of the table with 24 points. It is also their fifteenth straight win in all competitions.

The first half was a rather dull affair with very few chances on goal.

In fact, it will be a half Chiefs will want to forget as they did not threaten the Urban Warriors’ goal at all.

Ajax had the majority of the possession and had the first effort on goal in the 13th minute when Keagan Dolly fired inches over the crossbar from 24-yards out.

Four minutes later Bantu Mzawkali came close for Ajax, but his 24-yard free-kick was superbly tunred around the post by the fingertips of Brilliant Khuzwayo.

On the half hour mark Dolly tried his luck again from long range, but his effort went wide of the target.

The best chance of the half fell to Thabiso Nkoana in the 39th minute when he broke through on goal, but he was brilliantly denied in a one-on-one with Khuzwayo.

The half ended all square, but Ajax had the better of the statistics with more possession and four shots on goal to Chiefs zero.

Four minutes into the second stanza, however, and Chiefs took the lead with their first effort on goal when Tefu Mashamaite headed home a right sided free-kick from Siphiwe Tshabalala, 1-0.

Chiefs took control of the game after that and really slowed down the momentum of the game.

Ajax pushed hard in the final 15 minutes of the game, but could not find an equaliser as the Chiefs defence held firm.

The loss was Ajax’s second in the league while Chiefs are ten points clear at the top of the table.

Ajax: Jaakkola, Allie, Coetzee, Mobara, Lebusa, Graham, Nkoana, Scott, Morris (Cale 69’), Dolly (Paulse 59’), Mzwakali (Ngalande 79’).

Chiefs: Khuzwayo, Gaxa, Mashamaite, Gould, Masilela, Katsande, Letsholonyane, Lebese (Mathoho 82’), Maluleke (Mthembu 63’), Masango (Bukenya 91’), Tshabalala.
