Chiefs Suffer Defeat To CT City

Mpumalanga Cultural Experience Cup

Result: Kaizer Chiefs 0-1 Cape Town City

Date: 28 July 2018

Venue: Mbombela Stadium

Kaizer Chiefs ended up on the losing side in the Mpumalanga Cultural Experience Cup, after they went down 1-0 to Cape Town City.

Chiefs went close to breaking the deadlock as early as the third minute with a free-kick that was tipped away by new signing Peter Leeuwenbergh.

The Citizens managed to carve out their first opening after 18 minutes as Matthew Rusike got on the end of Edmilson Dove's cross but steered his header wide.

A few minutes later, Itumeleng Khune was called into action, with the Chiefs shot-stopper keeping out Thabo Nodada's effort.

That proved to be the final chance of the first half as the sides went into the break level at 0-0.

After a quiet start to the second half, it was Benni McCarthy's charges who took the lead on 64 minutes thanks to a strike from Craig Martin.

Chiefs carved out a chance to level matters with 14 minutes remaining, but Bernard Parker was denied by Leeuwenburgh at the near post.

The AmaKhosi pushed for an equalising goal in the closing stages but they were unable to bypass Leeuwenburgh as City held on for the win.

Here's how they lined up:

Chiefs: Khune, Mirwa, Cardoso, Mathoho, Moleko, Katsande, Meyiwa, Tshabalala, Parker, Billiat, Castro.

City: Leeuwenbergh, Mkhize, Fielies, Mngonyama, Edmilson, Putsche, Patosi, Nodada, Martin, Norodien, Rusike.

Subs: Stephens, Kouassi, Cupido, Seedat, Modise, Links, Kateregga, Matsi, Mthembu.
