Kaizer Chiefs were stunned by a spirited Polokwane City side to lose their Premier Soccer League (PSL) match which took place in Durban on Saturday. The match was played at an empty Moses Mabhida Stadium. The loss brings Kaizer Chiefs’ impressive seven-match unbeaten streak to an end.

The match was played behind closed doors as Kaizer Chiefs started serving the punishment handed down by the PSL’s Disciplinary Committee (DC) for the infamous stadium riot which took place at the same venue in April.

The match started slowly with neither team really looking like threatening the opposition’s half of the field. Ryan Moon making his first appearance of the season for Kaizer Chiefs nearly scored early on.

Briefly.co.za gathered that Polokwane took the lead in the first minute of extra time at the end of the first half through a glorious curling kick from Vusumuzi Mngomezulu.

Kickoff.co.za reported Kaizer Chiefs tried hard throughout the second half to level the match but could not find a way past Polokwane’s defences.

The loss comes as a blow to a side which had been on the upswing in recent weeks after suffering a horrid start to the season.
