Chiefs were dealt a blow after just 10 minutes when Philani Zulu was forced off with an injury. 

Chiefs enjoyed most of the possession in the opening stages of the encounter, with Siphiwe Tshabalala and George Maluleka seeing a lot of the ball.

Despite all the possession, Steve Komphela's charges were often let down by their decision-making in the final third.

Ajax, meanwhile, were quite content to soak up the pressure and attack the AmaKhosi on the counter.

Chiefs nearly broke the deadlock on the stroke of half-time through Bernard Parker, who dragged his effort wide of the mark from close range.

Gustavo Paez was introduced eight minutes into the second half and he could have broken the deadlock on 55 minutes, but he fired wide from close range.

After a quiet spell in the half, Ajax opted for a double change on 70 minutes as Sedwyn George and Junaid Sait were introduced.

Komphela responded by introducing Dumisani Zuma for Kgosto Moleko, with 15 minutes remaining in the second half.

Chiefs carved out a chance via set a piece in the 76th minute when Tshabalala's free-kick found Siyabonga Ngezana, who headed wide of the upright.

The hosts eventually broke the deadlock in the 85th minute, as Zuma latched onto a loose ball and fired past a helpless February, 1-0.

Chiefs had a couple of chances to get a second goal, but they were unable to convert as the game ended 1-0 in the home side's favour.

We won't win the league with this amateur display by scoring one goal almost every game we play when was the last time we scored 3 goals in a game?
