Chiefs Back To Winning Ways

Absa Premiership

Full Time: Kaizer Chiefs 3-1 Golden Arrows

Date: 3 November 2015

Venue: FNB Stadium

A brace from George Lebese and a goal from Bernard Parker saw Kaizer Chiefs back to winning ways in the Absa Premiership after beating Golden Arrows 3-1 in a league match at the FNB Stadium on Tuesday night.

The home side started very brightly with Kgotso Moleko winning a penalty-kick in the fifth minute after being brought down inside the box by Trevor Mathiane.

Lebese stepped up and made no mistake from the spot to give Chiefs the lead, 1-0.

Edward Manqele nearly made it two in the 13th minute when he was slipped through on goal by Lucky Baloyi, but the striker was superbly denied in a one-on-one with the goalkeeper.

Ten minutes later, Chiefs did find their second goal courtesy of another striker from Lebese. The attacking midfielder initially played Bernard Parker through on goal, but his shot was saved by the keeper and the rebound fell to Lebese who prodded the ball home, 2-0.

In the 36th minute Parker worked his way into the box from the right flank, but saw his 16-yard shot well-saved by the keeper.

Chiefs continued to dictate terms thereafter, but could not add to the scoreline before the break.

Three minutes into the second half Arrows suffered another set-back when Gladwin Shitolo was shown a straight red card for what the referee deemed a studs-up challenge on Baloyi.

In the 51st minute, very much against the run of play, a mistake by Lebese allowed Siyabonga Dube to rob him of the ball on the half way line and drive towards goal before firing a thunderbolt into the top corner from 22-yards out, 2-1.

On the hour mark Lebese almost found his third goal when some sublime skill saw him break into the box, but he fired his low 14-yard shot inches wide of the target.

The result was put beyond doubt in the 78th minute when a quick counter-attack from Chiefs saw Siphelele Mthembu break down the left and supply a low cross for Parker to tap home from 12-yards out, 3-1.

Arrows tried to find some consolation after that, but Chiefs held on for a comfortable win.

Teams:

Kaizer Chiefs: Khune, Moleko, Mathoho, Bukenya, Masilela, Katsande, Baloyi, Ekstein (Maluleka 84’), Lebese (Matovu 82’), Parker, Manqele (Mthembu 69’).
