Kaizer Chiefs clinched a 1-0 triumph against Polokwane City at Peter Mokaba Stadium, for their second consecutive win in the DStv Premiership.
The Glamour Boys, maintaining their winning line-up from the previous clash with Moroka Swallows, featured Ranga Chivaviro, Christian Saile, and Pule Mmodi in the attacking trio. The early moments of the game saw a resilient Polokwane side posing questions to Chiefs, with Douglas Mapfumo threatening from a header that forced goalkeeper Bruce Bvuma to make a crucial save, pushing the ball over the crossbar.
Polokwane’s Tholo Matuludi came close from a corner, attempting an acrobatic overhead kick that rattled the crossbar, leaving the Chiefs’ defence relieved. Coach Cavin Johnson’s side gradually found their rhythm, and Saile tested Polokwane’s shot-stopper, Manuel Sapunga, with a low curler on the edge of the box just before the hour mark.
Despite these moments, the first half concluded without either team finding the back of the net.
