DStv Premiership

Result: Chippa United 1-2 Golden Arrows

Date: 04 December 2021

Venue: Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium

Interim coach Kurt Lentjies handed a start to Jemondre Dickens in the attack as Mokhele Maloisane dropped to the bench after the win over Baroka last week.

The visitors got off to the perfect start as neat play between Nduduzo Sibiya and Pule Mmodi help set up Michael Gumede, who fired past Mtshali from close range.

Lentjies' decision to include Dickens paid dividends on 34 minutes as the former Baroka striker held the ball well before laying off for his strike partner Eva Nga Bienveu who slotted home the equaliser.

Arrows nearly restored their lead on the stroke of halftime but Gumede saw his header turned away by Mtshali after some good work by Mtshali down the flank.

Arrows would go on to get their reward seven minutes after the break Mmodi put the visiting side back in front with his third league goal of the season.

With time running out in the second half, Lentjies made a double change for Chippa in the final 15 minutes as Thabiso Lebitso and Sandile Mthethwa were withdrawn for Azola Matros and Zuko Mdunyelwa.

In the end, Lehlohonolo Seema's charges were able to see out the closing stages to claim a second successive league win to leapfrog AmaZulu into eighth spot.
