Khune came to Chiefs' rescue once again in the 28th minute to brilliantly keep out Mokoena's glancing header.

Renielwe Letsholonyane came close to giving Chiefs the lead in the 37th minute but the midfielder's stinging shot flew inches over the crossbar.

George Lebese could have given Chiefs the lead just before halftime break but the winger's close range was parried away by Kennedy Mweene.

Bongani Zungu tried his luck from distance in the 70th minute but the Sundowns midfielder fired his well wide of the mark.

The visitors took the lead in bizarre circumstances in the 75th minute as Teko Modise's floated ball into the box missed the head of Khama Billiat and found its way into the net.
