Struggling Chippa Punish Leopards

Absa Premiership

Result: Chippa United 3-0 Black Leopards

Date: 27 November 2019

Venue: Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium

Chippa United picked up their second win in a row after punishing Black Leopards 3-0 in an Absa Premiership clash at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.

Velile Mothwa remained in goal for Chippa, while Tercious Malepe returned from national duty. Edwin Gyimah made his third start for the visitors as he partnered Thivhavhudzi Ndou at the back.

Both sides entered the clash with their tails up after Chippa picked up their first league away to AmaZulu and the visitors getting the better of Cape Town City in a controversial 2-1 win.

The Chilli Boys were ahead in no less than five minutes after Thabo Rakhale fired home from an assist from Xolani Maholo.

Rakhale’s opener was the home side’s sixth goal all season long and the first time since the 1-0 win over Bloemfontein Celtic in the Telkom Knockout the club had gone ahead.

Leopards, who have picked more points away from home so far, fell further behind inside the 26th minute when Augustine Kwem applied a solid finish past Jose Mendes.

William Twala, who spearheaded his side’s maiden triumph last time out, nearly worsened Leopards plight three minutes to halftime but Mendes managed to deny the forward.

The Chilli Boys still managed to apply pressure straight from the second half, whilst Lidoda Duvha introduced Joseph Mhlongo for Musonda in reshuffling their attack.

Norman Mapeza’s boys eventually made the points safe after Twala fired home from the penalty spot for a comprehensive three-goal cushion six minutes before fulltime.

The result guides the Port Elizabeth side to back-to-back wins and close the gap on second-bottom AmaZulu to just a single point.

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.
