The result at the Cape Town Stadium left the Chiefs with six points, while City climbed from the bottom of the table to 12th with five points. It was City’s first win of the season.

The hype around the stadium, generated mainly by Kaizer Chiefs supporters, seemed to work for the wrong team as City got off to a dream start.

Eric Tinkler’s side started on the front foot and took the lead in the fifth minute. The goal came from a well-worked move that ended with Thami Mkhize crossing from the left.

The ball found Darwin Gonzalez, who made it look easy when he slotted home from a tight angle. The Chiefs picked themselves up a bit after the goal and tried to get into the game. But City stood their ground and kept the pressure on their visitors. The Chiefs were forced to make an early substitution as Reeve Frosler suffered a hamstring injury 20 minutes into the game.

He was replaced by Happy Mashian, who had rust on his rings as he had not played for a long time. Amakhosi had moments where they showed some power, but most of the time they were disjointed.

Both sides had several chances to score, but most fell to City, who needed at least two more goals before the break.

The Chiefs came back strongly in the second half and repeatedly came close to equalizing in the first 10 minutes of the stanza.

Just as the Naturena team were on the attack, looking to get into the game, they were met with a terrible blow when City scored their second goal.

It happened in the 62nd minute when Fasika Idumba got an easy header into the Amakhosi box from a free kick. Siyabongo Ngezana was again the villain as he failed to track down Idumba and allowed him an easy header.
