Kaizer Chiefs back in the race for second spot after 1-0 victory over Chippa United in Gqeberha

In what was one of their poorer matches this season, Chiefs had a great chance to take a lead in the 27th minute when Christian Saile broke lose on the right and set up Mduduzi Shabalala who could only hit the crossbar when left with only the goalkeeper to beat. 

Shabalala had a better chance to stretch Chiefs’ lead but again the teenager skied it when it looked easy to tap the ball home. 

Chippa, who played this match with a new coach, Lehlohonolo Seema, were never expected to give Chiefs trouble having come into this match on the back of eight matches without victory in the league.

Chippa had lost their last three matches in the Premiership against Sekhukhune, Marumo and Pirates ahead of welcoming Chiefs. 

The Gqeberha-based club remain in 15th spot with 26 points after 27 games and now have to beat Richards Bay, TS Galaxy and Lamontville Golden Arrows to have any chance of surviving.
