Kaizer Chiefs Secure Win against Free State Stars

Leonardo Castro to miss Free State Clash

Kaizer Chiefs secured a second successive Premiership win with a convincing 2-0 victory over Free State Stars at Goble Park on Tuesday night.

Both teams had early chances in the game: for Stars, Judas Moseamedi headed wide from a Yusuf Jappie cross, before Chiefs defender Mario Booysen mistimed a headed effort on 14 minutes.

Amakhosi took the lead via a beautiful crafted goal as Khama Billiat's superb through pass enabled Gustavo Paez to chip the ball over Badra Sangare and into the goal, despite a touch from the goalkeeper.

Stars looked to hit back with a couple of threatening attacks, but instead it was Amakhosi who added to their tally in the 34th minute when Hendrick Ekstein squared the ball for Philani Zulu, whose first touch teed up a well-struck half volley in at the near post.

Ea Lla Koto looked to get themselves back into the game after half time, but they struggled to create clear chances and had to wait until the 69th minute for an opening when Goodman Dlamini blasted a shot from a tight angle into the side-netting.

Three minutes later they came even closer when skipper Paulus Masehe's pile-driver whistled past the post.

Still Stars failed to give up and Eleazar Rodgers should really have halved the deficit eight minutes from time as he fired over the bar from right in front of goal in what proved to be the final clear chance of the night.
