Key players all deliver good performances: Middendorp

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Kaizer Chiefs moved ten points clear at the top of the Absa Premiership when they beat Stellenbosch FC 4-0 at the Cape Town Stadium on Wednesday night.

Siyabonga Ngezana, fresh from helping the national under-23 side qualify for the Olympics, opened the scoring for Chiefs after just twelve minutes, before Samir Nurkovic doubled the lead ten minutes later. Nurkovic added a second with 15 minutes remaining in the game before Dumisani Zuma wrapped up the result with a goal in stoppage time.

Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp says he had already put the weekend’s Telkom Knockout loss against Maritzburg United behind him, and their focus was on the league and this game.

Middendorp says that it was a good result, and he was pleased with the application from the team. What also pleased Middendorp was to see quite a few key players all deliver good performances.

Stellenbosch coach Steve Barker says he is obviously disappointed by the result and scoreline but concedes there was a difference in class on the day.

Barker says they need to put this result behind them now and focus on their game against SuperSport United on the weekend. – Report by Rob Delport
