Result: Maritzburg United 0-0 Kaizer Chiefs
Date: 17 August 2018
Venue: Harry Gwala Stadium
Kaizer Chiefs' struggles in the Absa Premiership continued after they failed to secure maximum points against a ten-man Maritzburg United.
There were a couple reunions on the night as Siyanda Xulu and Keagan Buchanan were hoping to get one over their former employers.
The game got off to a lively start, with both sides signalling their intent to attack from the onset as they were both pushing a first league win of the season.
15 minutes into the half, the hosts were reduced to 10 men as Ndlovu was shown a straight red card for a studs up challenge on Siyabonga Ngezana.
The red card did little to disrupt the tempo of the game, although Billiat and Hendrick squandered big chances to put Chiefs ahead midway through the half.
Keagan Buchanan was up against his former employers on the night, and he was certainly holding his own against the likes of Ekstein and Ntshangase in the middle of the park.
However, the AmaKhosi failed to take advantage of their dominance and went into the halftime break level pegging with the hosts.
