Kaizer Chiefs moved to second Position in the PSL Log Table

Following a victory over Soweto rivals Swallows FC on Sunday afternoon, Kaizer Chiefs moved into second place in the Premier Soccer League (PSL) log table.

Amakhosi went into the game with the goal of at least three points to make up for their lackluster performance against Amazulu on Wednesday.


In the windy conditions at Dobsonville Stadium, the game started slowly as the Chiefs attempted to build from the back.


The Chiefs had the wind in their favor in the first half, but they were unable to take advantage of it right away since they started the game slowly.Despite playing against the wind, Swallows showed hints of danger.

As the first half proceeded, Chiefs began to play with a sense of urgency, realizing that time was against them, and the team began to search for an early goal.


In the 43rd minute, two minutes before halftime, Amakhosi found an opener through Keagan Dolly, who was set up by Khama Billiat and put the visitors in front.


Billiat scored on his own goal three minutes later in the 45th minute, doubling Amakhosi's advantage, assisted by Ramahlwe Mphahlele.

The Chiefs were led by two goals at the halftime break.


After being set up by Bernard Parker, Billiat completed his brace in the 53rd minute, extending Amakhosi's advantage to 3-0.


Swallows grabbed one back ten minutes later in the 63rd minute through Lebohang Mokoena, who took Chiefs goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi off surprise.

Swallows were unable to score any more goals, and Chiefs won the game 3-1.


Amakhosi is now in second place, one point ahead of Stellenbosch FC, who lost 1-0 to Royal AM this afternoon.


In 13 games this season, the Chiefs have amassed a total of 22 points.


The club is only eight points behind Mamelodi Sundowns on the log.
