Bidvest Wits needed a good performance to earn points that would get their season underway as they have been struggling to win matches lately.

The Clever Boys had the more positive start creating a few chances in the opposition box, first of them falling to Granwald Scott. The midfielder struck a good shot towards goal and forced a good save from Itumeleng Khune.

Khune was called into action again when Gamal Amr rose above Lorenzo Gordinho to header towards goal from close range but the Chiefs goal minder reacted well to save the header.

Wits had another opportunity to score when a corner fell in the path of captain Thulani Hlatswayo but Khune was having none of it as he saved the defender’s powerful shot to keep the scores level. 

The Clever Boys were dealt a huge blow on the stroke of halftime when Nazeer Allie was given a red card after pulling back Siphiwe Tshabalala.

Amakhosi used their numerical advantage to great effect just five minutes into the second half after great interplay between George Maluleka and Kgotso Moleko saw Moleko set up Tshabalala for an easy tap in.

Wits almost responded immediately through Vincent Pule after the winger cut in from the right flank to fire away at Khune whose finger tips save forced the ball to the top of the bar and out of danger.

Pule was fouled by Moleko outside the box and Elias Pelembe stepped up to take the set piece. The Mozambique international fired the free kick towards goal but Khune was having a great day at the office and managed to punch the ball away from danger.

Gamal Amr scored a late goal to break Kaizer Chiefs hearts after playing with 10-men for the entire second half to secure a 1-1 draw away from home.
