Chiefs rule the roost in SA's ABSA PSL

Dladla celebrates with team mates after scoring Chiefs 1st goal in a 2-1 win over Wits

Kaizer Chiefs became the only ABSA Premier Soccer League outift to emerge from the Wednesday round of league matches with a 100% record, after beating tricky opponents Bidvest Wits 2-1 at the FNB Stadium last night.

Josta Dladla and Lehlohonolo Majoro were for the third match in a row the goal scorers for Amakhosi, as they combined to take the Soweto giants to the summit of the ABSA PSL with 9 points out of three games.

The two teams which squared up about two weeks ago in the MTN Super8 quarter-final appeared to be balanced in a goalless Frst Half, which saw Wits threatening to outplay their opponents like they did in a losing cause a fortnight ago.

While Sifiso Myeni teased the Amakhosi defence, giving new Chiefs recruit Keegan Ritchie some torrid time in the first four minutes, it was Chiefs who nearly scored in the 23rd minute.

Itumeleng Khune launched an attack from his goal which Dladla latched onto with a brillian run towards the Wits goal, but bif Zimbabwean-born keeper Energy Murambadoro produced a magnificent save using his legs.

The return from Half-time saw the introduction of Majoro, who surprisingly started from the bench in favour of the fit-again Kaizer Motaung Jnr.

Tshabalala embarked on one of his trademark mazy runs from the left, crossed for Dladla whose header gave Murambadoro no chance from close range. There was nothing that the Wits keeper could do as his defence failed to pick up Dladla who had a free header.

Wits, who, in all fairness matched Chiefs pound for pound, just like they did a fortnight ago, equalised in the 68th minute to cancel Chiefs' 54th minute lead through substitute Sifiso Vilakazi who benefited from a through ball by, who else, but the enterprising Myeni.

Chiefs coach Vladimir Vermozovic who is gradually proving to be a master strategist, introduced Majoro in the 69th minute, and the tiring Wits defence appeared to struggle marking the fresh legs of the former Amazulu hitman.

Dladla turned provider in the 77th minute when he crossed for Majoro to plant his header on the top upright corner beyond the reach of outdrawn Murambadoro.

Amakhosi were to hold onto the win, and reprelled everything that Wits threw at them in the dying minutes, to assume leadership of the PSL log.

Meanwhile, defending champions Orlando Pirates were reduced to ten men in the first half against Maritzburg United in KZN when the scorer of their only goal in the 24th minute, Benni McCarthy, received a second yellow to leave the field for early showers.

Maritzburg were to later stage a comeback fight, as they equalised through Diyo Sibisi in the 49th minute before  Mor Diouf completed the great come from behind story by netting a 77th winner at Harry Gwala Stadium to send the Bucs back to Gauteng empty handed.
