Late Show! TTM Down 10-Man Chiefs

DStv Premiership

Result: Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila 2-1 Kaizer Chiefs

Date: 04 May 2021

Venue: Peter Mokaba Stadium

Kaizer Chiefs missed another chance to move into the top eight after suffering a 2-1 defeat to Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila, who struck a late winner.

Bruce Bvuma was handed a rare start in the Chiefs goal with both Itumeleng Khune and Daniel Akpeyi not involved, while Reeve Frosler, Kearyn Baccus and Ramahlwe Mphahlele were also included from the start.

Both sides were in desperate need of a win, with Chiefs looking to boost their top-eight aspirates while Tshakuma needed to get out of the bottom-two slots.

However, chances were extremely hard to come by in the opening 25 minutes of the first despite Gavin Hunt's side seeing most of the ball from the onset.

The game sprung into life in the final 10 minutes of the stanza, as Chiefs were reduced to 10 men when Njabulo Blom was given his marching orders after picking up his second yellow card.

It went from bad to worse for Chiefs a few minutes later, as Thabo Rakhale handed TTM the lead with a super volley beyond Bvuma just moments after Thabo Mnyamane struck the crossbar from a free-kick.

The hosts managed to carve out a couple more chances after the break, with Celimpilo Ngema firing into the side netting after being slipped through on goal.

The Soweto giants were handed a lifeline on 64 minutes after being awarded a penalty for Ayanda Nkili's foul on Samir Nurkovic.

Lebogang Manyama stepped up and saw his spot-kick saved by Washington Arubi, but he managed to score on the rebound from a tight angle to take his tally to five league goals.

Surprisingly, that was Manyama's last major involvement as he was replaced by Dumisani Zuma six minutes later while Baccus made way for Willard Katsande.

Bernard Parker almost completed the turnaround for Chiefs in with 14 minutes left on the clock, but the veteran attacker saw his powerful strike crash against the crossbar with Arubi well beaten.

With the game seemingly headed for a draw, TTM were awarded a penalty of their own in the sixth minute of time added on for a handball on Siyabonga Ngezena, which allowed Mnyamane to slot home from 12 yards and hand TTM maximum points.
