Young Guns Shine As Chiefs Extend Winning Run

DStv Premiership

Result: Kaizer Chiefs 3-0 Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila

Date: 19 January 2021

Venue: FNB Stadium

Kaizer Chiefs bagged a third successive DStv Premiership victory after defeating Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila 3-0 on Wednesday evening.

Siyabonga Ngezana and Kearyn Baccus dropped to the bench, with Kgotso Moleko and Darryl Matsheke drafted in for the hosts while TTM were without former Chiefs winger Joseph Molangoane.

The Soweto giants had been struggling with injuries all season but another player was added to the list after just 14 minutes, when Ramahlwe Mphahlele was forced off with a knock and replaced by Njabulo Blom.

Despite the early setback, Chiefs went ahead four minutes later as Nkosingiphile Ngcobo netted for the second successive game after showing great skill to lose one defender before volleying past Washington Arubi.

TTM, meanwhile, barley threatened in the first half as Chiefs shot-stopper Daniel Akpeyi enjoyed a quiet opening 45 minutes, with his team in the ascendancy.

While TTM's frustration carried over into the second half, Chiefs had another casualty 10 minutes in after Ngcobo was stretchered off to add to the club's injury woes, which saw the arrival of Lebohang Lesako who was quick to get himself involved as he skewed an effort at the far post from Happy Mashiane's inviting cross from the left flank.

That proved to be Lesako's last involvement as his afternoon ended minutes later due to injury, but his replacement Lebogang Manyama made an immediate impact after doubling Chiefs' lead with his first touch after getting on the end of Mashiane's well-weighted cross at the far post.

TTM, who failed to trouble Akpeyi in the second half, finished the game with 10 men after Alfred Ndengane was sent off for picking up his second yellow card.

The home side managed to bag a third goal as Manyama returned the favour by playing Mashiane, who rifled the ball past Arubi to wrap up a good win.

Chiefs also had a man sent off in second-half stoppage time as Bernard Parker was given his marching orders after picking up two yellow cards in quick succession

Here's how they started:

Chiefs: 43. Akpeyi, 18. Moleko, 4. Cardoso, 21. Zulu, 2. Mphahlele, 43. Matsheke, 5. Agay, 37. Ngcobo, 28. Zuma, 8. Castro, 9. Nurkovic.
