Kaizer Chiefs have moved to eighth on the DSTV Premiership table after playing to a one-all draw with SuperSport United at the FNB Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Chiefs scored first, but United equalised to deny Amakhosi maximum points and the Glamour Boys have now gone five games without a win.
Chiefs were winless in four games and needed to get back to winning ways.
Amakhosi launched an attack with United’s defence dealing with the danger.
The visitors had an attack of their own at the other end with defender, Reeve Frosler, clearing a dangerous ball.
It was Chiefs that opened the scoring. Frosler beat keeper, Ronwen Williams, from within the penalty area.
The home side didn’t take their foot off the pedal after taking the lead.
Nkosingiphile Ngcobo tested Williams after he was allowed space to shoot from outside the penalty area.
The visitors had an opportunity to level the score after they managed to weave their way into the Chiefs penalty area. But Chiefs players didn’t allow them space to shoot.
The visitors had another opportunity to score with keeper, Itumelng Khune, stopping Sipho Mbule’s powerful shot.

Chiefs came close to scoring in the 77th minute, with Agay denied by the crossbar.
The home side had another goal scoring opportunity, with Williams pulling off a great save to deny Ncgobo a goal.
Atleast better football was played today , but I guess we need more creative players to play those 1,2s infront of the box , cause I see we struggling to penetrate in the middle instead we go wide , We need to see more carpet football the helicopter is not helping
