Uzochukwu Nets Late Winner For Chippa

Absa Premiership
 
Result: Chippa 2-1 Aces
 
Date: 30 October 2015
 
Venue: Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium
 
Chippa United got back onto the winning trail with a 2-1 victory over Mpumalanga Black Aces in the Absa Premiership on Friday night.
 
Amazayoni played on the counter-attack in the first 10 minutes and made forward progress via Tshidiso Tukane, but Thabang Thopola was on hand to clear the danger.
 
The play was focused mainly in midfield early in the opening half as both teams knocked the ball around, looking for a gap to exploit.
 
The breakthrough arrived in the 22nd minute. It was a sublime individual effort from Lehlohonolo Nonyane that found the back of the net, as he sent a free kick past Daniel Akpeyi.
 
The Chilli Boys came close to equalising in the 38th minute when Lerato Chabangu's corner kick picked out Ugonna Uzochukwu, but his header went over the bar.
 
However, the leveller arrived in the 57th minute as Chabangu finished with a composed left boot that nestled in the back of the net.
 
The game looked set to end in a draw, but in the 83rd minute the hosts found their winner via Uzochukwu's timely strike.
 
Here's how they lined up: 
 
Chippa: Akpeyi, Okwuosa, Thopola, Mthiyane, Chipeta, Sali, Uzochukwu, Chabangu, Mayambela, Cele, Bance
 
Aces: Mabokgwane, Kobola, Mzava, Ngalo, Nonyane, Tukane, Khuboni, Mashikinya, Masina D, Mbesuma (C), Masina S.
