Five minutes before the break Ivan Bukenya almost levelled matters for Chiefs when he met a left-sided free-kick into the box, but saw his close range header superbly saved by the SuperSport keeper.
The half ended 1-0 in favour of the home side.

Four minutes later Chiefs took the lead when Bukenya headed home a Siphiwe Tshabalala free-kick, 2-1.
SuperSport pushed for an equaliser, but saw their chances severely reduced when they were reduced to ten men following Dean Furman’s second yellow card in the 79th minute.
Chiefs secured the win in the 88th minute when Camaldine Abraw played Lebese through on goal and he me made no mistake with just the keeper to beat, 3-1.
