ASSIST! Basadien takes a free kick, which bounces off Baccus and falls to Mokoena to volley. Bvuma chooses a favorable position and can successfully block.
YELLOW, Mature: Blom makes slight contact with his arm on Mahlatsi and is alerted. It’s not the right decision.
CHANCE! The Swallows are continuing to miss great opportunities. Mahlatsi slipped through the middle, slipped into Ngcobo and took a great opportunity right in front of the post. That was five shots for the Swallows. four of them have a pretty clear chance.
CHANCE! Solomons made a good cross from the right to the Swallows. Musonda is completely free but he’s at the top of the bar. Today he doesn’t look sharp at all.
The swallow does well on the flanks. Saleng reached the border but Musonda was out of control in the box. Then Mahlatsi drove a cross that Ngcobo blocked well.
Amakhosi’s pressure resulted in the Solomons taking the ball out of his unnatural right-back role. Billiat picked it up but his cross went straight to the Swallows keeper in February.
That goal tackled the sheriff. Now they are holding the ball really well and making the pitch wide and beautiful.
GOAL, KAIZER CHIEFS, NGCOBO, 1-0! Amakhosi went ahead. Frosler made a great cross from the right and Ngcobo went high to head it. He refused to celebrate in front of his old club. Kaizer Chiefs 1-0 Swallows.
Saleng dribbled very well from the right for the Swallows. He tries to find Musonda but Mphahlele wipes it out. The Chiefs captain is now holding his lap.
The swallows were passing the ball in the back as the Troop Leaders sat away from them. The home team mainly plays during the break.
Billiat led a quick counter-attack but was of no use to the Chiefs after a deep pass from Blom.
A good start to this match with comfortable space for both teams.
EXIT! A loose ball bounced off the edge of the box… Letlabika beat Mashiane to catch the ball but collided with the Chiefs man swinging his foot where the ball was. Both players are limp and need treatment.
Parker will play in the front today. He dropped it and sent it wide to Frosler. His cross is poor though.
CHANCE! A light touch from Nange saw the Mahlatsi motorcycle go far. He dribbled past Ngcobo’s slide but hit the target from long distance. Well started by Swallows.
CHANCE! The swallow missed another chance. Basadien reached the line and found Musonda free near the station. Strikers cannot wrap their legs around the ball and widen.
Begin! The leaders will kick us at home in this important match.
