Chiefs Hand Aces First Defeat

Absa Premiership

Full Time: Kaizer Chiefs 1-0 MP Black Aces

Date: 27 October 2015

Venue: FNB Stadium

A goal from Camaldine Abraw saw Kaizer Chiefs hand MP Black Aces their first defeat in the Absa Premiership this season after a 1-0 win at FNB Stadium on Tuesday night.

Aces started the better of the two teams and looked the more threatening in attack with their pace and urgency.

The first real effort on goal came in the ninth minute when a thunderous 24-yard shot from Lebogang Manyama deflected inches over the Chiefs crossbar with goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune stranded.

Chiefs had their first effort on goal in the 16th minute when a powerful shot from just outside the box by Siphiwe Tshabalala was well-saved by Shu-Aib Walters.

Just after the half hour mark the Glamour Boys took the lead when Camaldine Abraw headed home a left wing cross from George Lebese, 1-0.

Chiefs controlled the remainder of the half, but could not add to their tally before the break.

Aces dominated proceedings after the break, but for all their possession they struggled to break down a well-organised Chiefs defence.

Instead, the first decent scoring opportunity of the second half fell to Chiefs in the 58th minute when Tshabalala tried to chip the Aces’ goalkeeper who was off his line, but the midfielder’s effort went just wide.

Aces’ first real threatening effort on goal in the second half came in the 64th minute when Manyama fired inches wide of the goal from 24-yards out.

Six minutes later Lehlohonolo Nonyane created another opening for Aces when his low cross from the left was back-heeled narrowly wide from a couple of yards out by Sibusiso Masina.

In the 74th minute Aces came even closer to finding the equaliser when a left wing cross from Aubrey Modiba was deflected goalwards by right-back Siboniso Gaxa, but Khune made a fantastic save to touch the effort onto the post.

Collins Mbesuma should have found the back of the net with ten minutes to go when he met a Nonyane cross from the left, but he headed wide under no pressure.

Aces continued to push forward in the dying minutes of the game, but Chiefs held on for only their third win of the league season.
