Baroka Deny Chippa Third Straight Victory

Absa Premiership

Result: Chippa United 0-0 Baroka

Date: 01 December 2018

Venue: Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium

Chippa United remain rooted to the foot of the Absa Premiership standings after being denied a third successive victory by Baroka on Sunday afternoon.

The Chilli Boys coach Norman Mapeza did not tamper with the side that thumped Black Leopards in midweek, trusting the likes of William Twala, Thabo Rakhale and Nigerian forward Chidi Kwem to produce fireworks upfront.

Meanwhile, Bakgaga made four changes to the side that narrowly lost to Golden Arrows, as Matome Kgoetyane, Denwin Farmer, Matome Mabeba and Mduduzi Mdantsane boosted the side with their return.

Chippa came to the game chasing their third straight victory after two back-to-back wins over AmaZulu and Black Leopards revived their chances of getting out of the relegation zone.

On the other hand, Baroka lost their sixth game of the campaign after conceding a last-gasp winner against Abafana Bes'thende that dragged them back closer to the relegation places.

The only chance in the first stanza fell to the home side on 30 minutes after goalkeeper Elvis Chipezeze spilled a corner kick into the path of Twala, but Baroka defence was alert to clear the danger as the first stanza ended without goals.

Wedson Nyirenda made a quick change in the second stanza, bringing on trusted striker Richard Mbulu in place of Matome Mabeba but the vistors could not find clear openings.

Mapeza refreshed his side with Boikanyo Komane taking the place of Silas Maziya just after the hour-mark, while Kurt Lentjies came on for Meshack Maphangule a few minutes later but they too could not produce the final product.

Without the finishing touches coming to the fore in the latter stages, the sides settled for the share of the spoils, with Chippa remaining bottom of the table with 11 points, two points from safety, while Baroka moved slightly up to 12th with 13 points.

Here's how they lined up:

Chippa: 34. Mothwa, 22. Modisane, 17. Damons, 20. K.Moyo, 12. Malepe, 13. Maphangule, 33. Mahola, 8. Rakhale, 11. Maziya, 40. Twala, 15. Kwem

Subs: 30. Tignyemb, 25. L.Manzini, 18. R.Manzini, Maarman, 32. Lentjies, 44. Komane, Reid

Baroka: 1. Chipezeze, 2. Kgoetyane, 18. Shozi, 33. Farmer, 23. Ngubane, 20. Patjie, 14. Mosele, 8. Mdantsane, 13. Mabeba, 10. Phiri Jnr, 25. Nxumalo.

Subs: 30. Dlamini, 3. Gebhardt, 24. Madondo, 16. Madigoe, 17. Kambala, 9. Mbulu, 12. Makgaka.
