Misfiring Chiefs Drop Points At Home

Absa Premiership Report: Kaizer Chiefs v AmaZulu 17 March 2018

By Soccer Laduma - Mar 17, 2018 07:57 PM

Absa Premiership 

Result: Kaizer Chiefs 0-0 AmaZulu

Date: 17 March 2018

Venue: FNB Stadium

Kaizer Chiefs registered their 12th draw of the Absa Premiership season after playing to a 0-0 stalemate with AmaZulu at the FNB Stadium.
 
 
Usuthu started on a high note in the opening five minutes but Zimbabwean forward Ovidy Karuru spurned two successive chances after going clear on goal.
 
Amakhosi settled after 10 minutes and were looking to penetrate on the right wing, with Ramahlwe Mphahele making overlapping runs.
 
Steve Komphela's charges increased their intensity after 20 minutes but were yet to find openings in the final third.
 
Teenage Hadebe almost handed Amakhosi the lead in the 31st minute with a free header that was tipped onto the upright by Usuthu shot-stopper Energy Murambadoro.
 
Siyethemba Mnguni almost sensationally broke the deadlock for Cavin Johnson’s troops seven minutes before the break with a volley from 25-yards, but it missed narrowly over the corner of the crossbar.
 
That proved to be the final chance of the half as the sides went into the break scoreless.Komphela did not waste time to ring the changes as he withdrew Wiseman Meyiwa and brought in Hendrick Ekstein at the start of the second half, while Ryan Moon replaced Bernard Parker moments later.

Philani Zulu should have done better for Amakhosi four minutes before the hour after receiving a pass at the far post, but he took too many touches before the chance went away.

Karuru had another opportunity for Johnson’s men two minutes later after being set up inside the box but he fired wide at close range.

In the 64th minute, Moon almost got the breakthrough for the hosts with a header at the near post that sailed just wide of the upright.

Despite the substitutions from both sides, clear-cut chances were hard to come by and they were both restricted to efforts from distance.

Amakhosi’s performance was disjointed altogether and they could not find the winning goal, as Usuthu held on for a vital away point.

Steve as an hounarble man, must do the right thing, he was given enough time, players he wanted were bought, but still things are not coming together, players are not responding to his methods, its clear he was given enough time but he failed...

To be honest the whole team penetration throughout the season was just mediocre to say the least. Creativity in the middle of the park was just a foreign thought and one can only blame the the strikers up to so far.

Famous words "if it's not broken why fix it" now this doesn't apply to chiefs, they don't create chances for scoring, why don't they take risks, Micho does it all the time, have 6 changes in a team, i mean when is he gonna start playing Jayiya, zuma and Ntshangase in a starting line up? This meyiwa guy n Zulu ain't making much of a difference offensively! #once&allways

No team wouldn't keep cleansheet from the back to the front if they play with 6 defensive players......... That leave a team with only 4 options going forward. Katsande Meyiwa Cardoso Zulu Rama and Hadebe are all defensive players.... If we play all of these players against weak teams like Usuthu then we are in deep trouble.. .

How can you be upset at a dog for barking? This team specialises in draws, that's what draw specialists do they draw. Kompela is more concern about not conceding and keeping his defensive record than winning matches.

@Bucsfever16 Hahaha I assume you still knew in soccer. Its only fool who doesn't know that Steve is living in a fantasy world where everythings are achieved through imaginations. But here in reality world, where we are living, everythings are achieved via hardwork. So we know that we are playing friendleague games.. ...
