Reading Time: 2 minutes

Kaizer Chiefs survived yet another scare in the DSTV Premiership. Amakhosi came back from two goals down to force a 2-all draw at home against Black Leopards last night.

Zimbabwean, Ovidy Karuru, scored a brace in the first half against his former employers, before Nkosingiphile Ngcobo and Khama Billiat’s goals secured a point for Chiefs.

Black Leopards could not have asked for a better start to the away match against Chiefs. Just before the half-hour mark, Zimbabwean, Ovidy Karuru, was at it again, completing his brace. Midway through the second half, Amakhosi pulled one back and at the death, Khama Billiat scored the equaliser to secure a point for Chiefs.

“Big mistakes from a big player, yeah. And it’s been happening since I’ve been here, so we got to get through and stick together to get through this,” said Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt.

His counterpart from Black Leopards, Dylan Kerr, was chuffed with his team’s performance but had mixed feelings about not winning the game.

“I’m pleased with the goals we scored; pleased with the effort the boys put in but it’s a lesson to be learned. We are building. To come here against Kaizer Chief, we should have taken three points. Unfortunately, we’ve got a point away from home, so I’ve got to be happy but not really.”
