Kaizer Chiefs now find themselves five points behind Mamelodi Sundowns after Wednesday night’s draw against Bidvest Wits in an Absa Premiership match at the Bidvest Wits stadium. The Glamour Boys dominated the game in the beginning, when Siphiwe Tshabalala almost scored in the second minute. George Lebese also tried his luck from distance.
Sthembiso Ngcobo showed his former team flames but Itumeleng Khune managed to save the ball. Moeneeb Josephs also saved a 22-yard free-kick from Bernard Parker. Siboniso Gumede almost scored a goal for Wits after a corner kick. Ngcobo’s header hit the top of the crossbar after their second corner kick.
Amakhosi almost got a goal in the last seconds of the first half when Parker tried to score but Josephs brilliantly saved the ball. In the second half the hosts came back with more effort, giving their fans hope that they were going to score in the first few minutes. Ngcobo
almost earned Gavin Hunt’s all three points when he scored in the 63rd minute but he was ruled off-side.
Katlego Mphela started attacking in the 82nd minute when he fired the ball over the crossbar. He also tried scoring in the last seconds when Tshabalala passed him the ball but he was unlucky. Now the future isn’t looking bright for Stuart Baxter and his side’s title defence prospects. Baxter’s boys find their fate is now out of their hands and will be relying on Sundowns to now drop points whereas Wits must win all remaining matches and hope the Brazilians lose all theirs to have any hope of landing the title.
