Chiefs Drop First Points At Home

Absa Premiership

Full Time: Kaizer Chiefs 1-1 University of Pretoria

Date: 23 September 2015

Venue: FNB Stadium

Kaizer Chiefs dropped their first points at home after playing to a 1-1 draw against the University of Pretoria in their Absa Premiership match at FND Stadium on Wednesday night.

The Amakhosi started positively with their first attempt on goal coming in the eighth minute when Parker played Reneilwe Letsholonyane through on goal, but he fired his shot into the side-netting from eight yards out.

Four minutes later Letsholonyane turned provider as he played Camaldine Abraw into space on the edge of the box, but his 18-yard thunderbolt sailed inches over the target.

Chiefs continued to pile on the pressure and were rewarded for their efforts in the 26th minute when Parker turned home a low right-wing cross from Siphiwe Tshabalala, 1-0.

Tuks tried to find their way back into the game and managed their first decent shot on goal in the 40th minute courtesy of a 20-yard strike from Getaneh Kebede, but the Amakhosi keeper made a good save.

Chiefs, though, had the last say of the half when Abraw met a left-wing cross from George Lebese, but his ten-yard header went narrowly over the goal.

The half ended 1-0 in favour of the home team.

Tuks came out full of energy at the start of the second half and came close to levelling matters in the 55th minute when Thabiso Nkoana fired a low long range shot inches wide of the target.

The away side continued to press forward and found their equaliser in the 71st minute when a deflected 16-yard volley from Tebogo Monyai found the corner of the net, 1-1.

Both teams were poor in the final 15 minutes and unable to create any decent scoring chances as the spoils were shared.
