Dolly, Kekana Send Downs Into Last Eight

Telkom Knockout

Result: Mamelodi Sundowns 2-0 Chippa United

Date: 03 October 2015

Venue: Lucas Moripe Stadium

Goals from Keagan Dolly and Hlompho Kekana handed Mamelodi Sundowns a 2-0 win over Chippa United in their Telkom Knockout tie on Saturday evening.

Sundowns enjoyed an early spell of possession in the opening exchanges with Bongani Zungu and Themba Zwane seeing a lot of the ball.

The first real opening arrived in the 20th minute when un-marked Tebogo Langerman forced Daniel Akpeyi into a fine save with a well-taken volley from close range.

Pitso Mosimane's men continued to pile on the pressure as the half went on and they nearly broke the deadlock in the 29th minute but Wayne Arende's header crashed against the crossbar.

Chippa, meanwhile, were happy to sit back and soak up all the pressure with the hope catching Sundowns on the break.

Although, Chippa goalkeeper, Daniel Akpeyi, struggled with a lot of crosses coming into the box and made a couple needless errors, which went unpunished.

Both coaches made changes at the start of the second, as Khama Billiat replaced Malajila, while Lerato Chabangu came on for his Chippa debut along with Rhulani Manzini.

Sundowns eventually broke the deadlock in the 59th minute when Zungu's knockdown stood up nicely for Keagan Dolly, who volleyed home from the edge of the area.

Chabangu nearly marked his debut with a goal in the 70th minute but his curling free-kick forced Denis Onyango into a fine finger-tip save.

Chippa's task was made even tougher in the 75th minute when Thamsanqa Sangweni was given his marching orders after picking up his second yellow card for a late tackle on Zungu.

Mark Mayambela was presented with a glorious chance in the 82nd minute but the midfielder blazed his effort horribly wide from 12-yards out.

The Brazilians sealed the win in the 86th minute when Hlompho Kekana's long range effort took a deflection and wrong-footed Akpeyi to secure their passage into the last eight.

Here's how they lined up:

Mamelodi Sundowns: Onyango, Arendse, Langerman, Nthethe, Mphahlele, Dolly, Zungu, T.Zwane, Kekana, Malajila, Mashego

Chippa United: Akpeyi, Okwuosa, Thopola, Maleasenya, Chipeta, Sangweni, Bance, Mthiyane, Mayambela, Manzine, Sali
