Kaizer Chiefs are still top of the South African Premiership, despite surrendering their unbeaten record to Polokwane City last weekend.
Jabulani Maluleke scored the only goal in
that win. As one of the most polished midfielders in the league despite being
37 years old, he coolly converted a 16th-minute penalty to settle the fifth-round
Mwenya Chibwe made a string of superb saves
as Polokwane soaked up second half pressure to reach 10 points and trail Chiefs
only on goals scored.
Chiefs have failed to win a trophy in four
seasons, leading to several coaching changes with German Ernst Middendorp, who
has lived in South Africa for many years, the latest incumbent.
“We did not play our natural
game,” lamented Middendorp. “Pumping long balls into the penalty area
is not our style.
“My team lacked calmness and composure
and panicked at times. Falling behind against an organised side like City was
fatal as they put eight to nine men behind the ball.”
Saturday’s round of matches kick off with
PSL newcomers Stellenbosch FC, still searching for their first win of the
season, hosting Black Leopards – a team who is in a backroom disarray after
firing their coach earlier in the week.
The other two 15:00 kick offs sees
Bloemfontein Celtic travel to Chippa United while the PSL’s surprise package –
Rise and Shine host Super Sport United.
Mamelodi Sundowns, wounded from a defeat in
the MTN8 midweek host Maritzburg United in the 18:00 fixture.
It’s then over to Wits and Pirates to wrap
up Saturday’s action.
On Sunday, Cape Town City host Golden
Arrows while Highlands Park, another team who has parted ways with their coach,
travel to Baroka FC.
