Chiefs Secure Second Straight Win

Absa Premiership 

Result: Kaizer Chiefs 2-0 Maritzburg United
 
Date: 24 September 2016
 
Venue: FNB Stadium
 
Kaizer Chiefs claimed their second successive league win, after recording a 2-0 victory over Maritzburg United.
 
 
The Team of Choice enjoyed a good start to the encounter and saw most of the ball in the opening 15 minutes, while they also had a goal disallowed. 
 
However, Chiefs broke the deadlock after 19 minutes, as Lorenzo Gordinho rose well to head home George Lebese's corner from the left.
 
 
Steve Komphela's charges started seeing more of the ball after taking the lead, with George Maluleka and Mitchell Katsvairo pulling the strings in the middle of the park.
 
Maritzburg, meanwhile, will feel unlucky not to have gone into the break with a goal, after Bevan Fransman's header was questionably ruled out.
 
However, Chiefs doubled their lead on the stroke of halftime, as Lebese's fine pass found William Twala, who calmly slotted past Virgil Vries.
 
Maritzburg started seeing more of the ball in the second and Komphela responded by introducing Daniel Cardoso for George Lebese after 60 minutes.
 
With Chiefs comfortably leading, Komphela introduced Siphiwe Tshabalala for Maluleka, as the club captain continues to regain full fitness.
 
Itumeleng Khune had a relatively quiet evening, but came to Chiefs' rescue in the 81st minute, as he produced a fine save to keep out Fransman's glancing header.
 
Nonetheless, Chiefs managed to see out the rest of the half with relative ease to claim their second victory of the season.
 
 
Here's how they lined up:
 
Kaizer Chiefs: Khune, Mphahlele, Khumalo, Mathoho, Gordinho, Katsande, Twala, Maluleka, Katsvairo, Ekstein, Lebese.
 
Maritzburg United: Vries, Mogapi, Onyango, Fransman, Moyo, Weidlich, Lentjies, Zulu Rusike, Mekoa , Mngonyama.
