Chiefs dominated the early exchanges and created their first chance on goal in the seventh minute when Emmanuel Letlotlo met a right wing cross from Gustavo Paez, but the striker headed inches over under no pressure.

In the 19th minute Ryan Moon turned provider when he played Emmanuel Letlotlo through on goal, but again he wasted the chance when he fired into the side-netting from an acute angle ten-yards out.

A minute later some swift passing by Chiefs saw Paez slip Hendrick Ekstein through on goal, but with just the keeper to beat the attacking midfielder fired wide from 14-yards out.

Wits suffered a bit of a set-back in the 37th minute when Daine Klate had to leave the field injured and was replaced by Vincent Pule.

Chiefs controlled the remainder of the half, but failed to create any more significant chances on goal as the half ended 0-0.

Wits created the first chance of the second half in the 53rd minute when Vincent Pule curled a 20-yard effort inches wide of the Chiefs goal.

Six minutes later Vincent Pule was in the thick of the action again when he cut inside from the left flank and drove into the box, but he saw his shot from an acute angle deflected onto the post from Lorenzo Gordinho.

Chiefs’ first shot on goal in the second half only came in the 66th minute when Hendrick Ekstein fired a 22-yard half-volley just over the crossbar.

Steve Komphela threw on the likes of Joseph Molangoane and George Lebese in the final 20 minutes, as Chiefs pushed for a winning goal.

The match looked to be heading for a stalemate until the 92nd minute when Gustavo Paez gave Chiefs victory after turning home a low left-wing cross from Lebese, 1-0.
