The Soweto giants successfully defended their Maize Cup title by defeating Free State Stars 6-5 on penalties after it ended 1-1 after 90 minutes. 

Khama Billiat, Virgil Vries, Kabelo Mahlasela and Letlhogonolo Mirwa were all handed their first appearances in a Chiefs jersey.

“I saw what I wanted to see [with the new signings] they gave us a good show but as you know [Kabelo] Mahlasela has been out for a time and he’s coming but I saw that he was getting tired and I had pull him out but he did play well. Khama [Billiat] also did well. It was a good match for them," Mabedi told SuperSport after the game.

Overall, Mabedi was pleased with the entire match although he did point out the fatigue for some of his players.

“We started very well but I think we lost it towards the end of the first half. In the second half we started again [very well] but towards the end again the legs started to tire because of fatigue," he added.

“But overall I think we should win this game in open game [regulation time] we missed a lot of chances, they only got one chance and they punished us. I don’t know if it’s a penalty but it’s one of those things in the game. Overall I think it was a good practice match.

“I’m happy with the objectives we wanted to achieve this is our first competitive friendly you could see the standard is a little bit off the way the players went out [fatigue] but I think we’re in the right way.”

Putting Mahlasela for more than 70min was dangerous for somebody who is recuperating from an injury and a long layoff. That says something about your managing capabilities.
