The home side enjoyed an encouraging start to the encounter, although the Chiefs defence managed to withstand any pressure.

City eventually broke the deadlock in the 16th minute courtesy of a strike from Aubrey Ngoma, who skipped past two players before firing past Brice Bvuma.

Chiefs leveled matters in the 20th minute as Siphiwe Tshabalala found the back of the net with a superb lob from the edge of the box.

Eric Tinkler's charges restored their lead in the 34th minute as Lebogang Manyama skipped past George Maluleka before firing past Bruce Bvuma via a deflection, 2-1.

Both sides pushed for more goal in the final 10 minutes of the first half, but the score remained 2-1 to City as the sides entered the break.

Komphela introduced William Twala in the opening five minutes of the second half, before Gustavo Paez was introduced minutes in the 50th minute.
 
Manyama had the chance to grab City's third in the 52nd minute, but he dragged his effort wide of the mark from close range, after being played in by Lehlohonolo Majoro.
 
The introduction of Paez certainly helped the visitors and he was key to bringing Chiefs level in the 71st minute when he skipped past Shu-Aib Walters and teed up Joseph Molangoane for the simple tap-in, 2-2.
 
Chiefs were dominating in the second half and Paez had a chance to hand the visitors the lead in the 78th minute but he scuffed his effort wide from six-yards out.
 
City had a chance to win the game in the 88th minute but Judas Moseamedi somehow fired wide of the upright from inside the box.
 
Both sides pushed for a winning goal in the closing stages, and it was City who got the winner as Moseamedi headed home in stoppage time, 3-2.

City: 1. Walters, 4. Kabola (Adjei 66'), 27. Gumede, 16. Johannes, 39. Edmilson, 21. Mokeke, 8. Manyama, 19. Putsche, 11. Ngoma, 10. Jayiya, 45. Majoro (Moseamedi 74').
