Chippa Sink Chiefs To Move Second

Absa Premiership

Result: Chippa United 1-0 Kaizer Chiefs

Date: 05 December 2017

Venue: Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium

Chippa United beat Kaizer Chiefs 1-0 in the Absa Premiership at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Wednesday, heaping pressure on Steve Komphela's side.
 
 
The Chilli Boys came out of the blocks flying and took the lead in the fifth minute. Mark Mayambela's low ball in from the right set up Abel Mabaso for a close-range finish.
 
Teboho Moloi's side could have had a chance to double their lead eight minutes later, but Zitha Macheke was unfairly denied a close-range shooting opportunity by the offside flag.
 
In the 25th minute, Itumeleng Khune made a fine save to keep out Moeketsi Sekola's header from a Kurt Lentjies cross.
 
Seven minutes later, Chiefs went within inches of equalising at the other end as Hendrick Ekstein fended off James Okwuosa and fired his close-range shot against the near post.
 
Paseka Mako put the ball in the net in stoppage time, but was denied by yet another incorrect offside call.
 
Chiefs found their rhythm as the half progressed, but Chippa were the more clinical of the two sides in the opening 45 minutes.
 
Amakhosi made the first substitution of the game in the 10th minute of the second half as Gustavo Páez replaced Ekstein.
 
Páez got off to a fantastic start as his cross from the right picked out Joseph Molangoane. However, the former Chippa player disappointingly headed wide of goal.
 
In the 66th minute, Mako made way as Chippa brought Zaphaniah Mbokoma on.
 
Five minutes afterwards, the hosts survived a scramble in their box following a delivery from a George Maluleka free-kick. A fantastic clearance from Okwuosa denied Chiefs a chance at the far post.
 
In the 75th minute, Maluleka fired inches off target from a dipping free-kick taken just outside the area.
 
Straight afterwards, Mayambela was taken off for Katlego Mashego.
 
Chiefs lost Bernard Parker to injury in the 78th minute as he was stretchered off with a facial injury. Dumisani Zuma replaced him.
 
Two minutes later, Teenage Hadebe cleared Mashego's shot off the line after affording him the chance to have a crack at goal by playing him offside to begin with.
 
The final substitutions of the game saw Bhongolwethu Jayiya replace Siphiwe Tshabalala and Sandile Zuke replace Kurt Lentjies.
 
In the 87th minute, Daniel Akpeyi made a good save to keep out a header from Páez as Chiefs searched for a late equaliser.
 
The visiting side's efforts were ultimately in vain. Chippa leapfrogged Chiefs on the log and claimed revenge for their Telkom Knockout quarter-final defeat.
 

Here's how they lined up:

Chippa: 1. Akpeyi, 4. Macheke, 7. Mako (Mbokoma 66'), 5. Konqobe, 2. Okwuosa, 17. Maphanga, 27. Mabaso, 20. Mdlindzo, 32. Lentjies (Zuke 86'), 11. Mayambela (Mashego 75'), 9. Sekola.

Chiefs: 32. Khune , 4. Cardoso, 20. Hadebe, 30. Ngezana, 21. Zulu, 31. Katsande, 12. Maluleka, 14. Tshabalala (Jayiya 84'), 23. Molangoane, 27. Ekstein (Paez 54'), 14. Parker (Zuma 78'),
