The Kaizer Chiefs somersault celebration that nearly ended in tears

Who said Kaizer Chiefs were done and buried?

Dolly and Billiat were the architects of this much-needed victory that ensured that Motaung had the happiest of birthdays and the club stormed into the top eight on the log.

Dolly’s sparkling performance was in front of Bafana Bafana coach Hugo Broos, who has made it clear that the door has not been closed on any of the national team’s “old guard”.

Chiefs went into match under pressure after four matches without a win in which they suffered two losses.

It is not looking good for Chippa coach Gavin Hunt. They have gone six league matches without a win.

It was a ruthless all-round performance by Amakhosi against this modest Chippa side. who simply did not have the answers to the questions they were asked.

Bernard Parker featured in his 264th league match to be tied with Tinashe Nengomasha on the fourth most in the PSL era for Chiefs.

Only Simphiwe Tshabalala (292), Thabo Mooki (271) and Itumeleng Khune (270) have played more matches than Nengomasha and Parker.

Parker is also one goal away from becoming the all time highest scorer for Amakhosi in the PSL era and he will have a chance to achieve this milestone against SuperSport United on Sunday.

The first notable chance was for Chippa after eight minutes when midfielder Athini Jodwana rifled a shot from outside the box but Chiefs goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi was equal to it.

Amakhosi responded swiftly to open the scoring four minutes later after Billiat dispossessed Veluyeke Zulu before laying the ball off to Dolly, who rifled into the net.

Amakhosi took firm control with the second goal just after the half-hour with a breathtaking attacking move that involved Dolly and Billiat.

Billiat delivered a defence-splitting pass into space but Parker, who was in an offside position, left the ball for Dolly who toyed with Siphesihle Mkhize before placing the ball beyond the outstretched hands of Rashid Waitenga.

Then, Billiat and Kambole, who has been struggling in front of goal, put this match beyond doubt late in the second half to deny Chippa the status of birthday party poopers.
