Brandon Peterson really made a name for himself at the Carling Black Label Cup and impressed when he was subbed on. The goalkeeper made a number of saves during the penalty shootout against Orlando Pirates and this made fans believe that he should be given the number one slot.
Petersen, who replaced Itumeleng Khune in the second half, became an overnight hero solely because Chiefs won 4-3 on penalties at Orlando Stadium against their old enemies, Orlando Pirates.

"I’m happy for Brandon Peterson man. He chose us, couldn’t go out on loan last season due to an injury. Gets his shot and saves 2 penalties."
"For me, it's Pirates fans voting for Khune to be substituted only for Peterson to fetch their penalties."
"Brandon Peterson... not here to decorate the bench/stands. He's here to compete."
Itumeleng Khune is grateful to be given a contract extension
Briefly News previously reported that Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune is happy to have renewed his contract with the club but he's most grateful for the opportunity.
Khune's future had been hanging in the balance but eventually, the club decided to have him stay on for another two years.
The 34-year-old had a difficult season. Khune only preserved four clean sheets in 18 appearances in all competitions, all of which came in the CAF Champions League. In addition, he was unable to replace fellow goalkeepers Daniel Akpeyi and Bruce Bvuma in the starting 11.
"I think the club will decide on if I stay after the contract ends but I’m really grateful for yet another opportunity I’ve been given by Chiefs," said Khune.
