Kaizer Chiefs missed a chance to move to fourth position when they were held to a goalless draw by TS Galaxy on Sunday afternoon at Mbombela Stadium.
Amakhosi played well, but as has been the case in most of their games this season, they failed to find the back of the net, with Du Preez missing a big chance, and Dolly’s effort from six yards being saved by Kolak.
If Chiefs are serious about finishing second, they will have to start scoring goals.
Staying at Naturena….
Kaizer Chiefs might as well build their own hospital, considering the amount of injuries plaguing their key players.
Arthur Zwane was forced to play Siyabonga Ngezana at right-fullback, with first choice, Reeve Frosler injured, together with Solomons, the second choice.
In addition to the two defenders, Amakhosi have Khama Billiat, and Nkosingiphile Ngcobo on their long term injury list.
Caleb Bimenyimana might also have joined that list, after his injury yesterday.
Forward Khama Billiat will be out for the season.
While Nkosingiphile ‘Mshini’ Ngcobo out for three to four months.
“We have never had such a situation in the team and it is quite disturbing. But it’s part of the game and we’re not going to dwell on it and complain.” – Arthur Zwane.
Orlando Pirates striker coach, Scott Chickelday has left the club.
When Orlando Pirates suddenly discovered their scoring boots two over two weeks ago, after the arrival of strikers coach, Scott Chickelday, the team’s supporters were excited.
Amabhakaniya scored nine goals in three matches, including a 4-1 win over Stellenbosch.
But after Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Mamelodi Sundowns, Chickelday has abruptly announced his departure.
“Not the results I wanted in my last game with Orlando Pirates completed,” Chickelday confirmed on his official Twitter account.
“We dominated for 90 minutes to lose 1-0 against top of the table Mamelodi Sundowns.
“Thanks to everyone involved with the club and to the fantastic supporters for making me so welcome,” he added.
Does this mean the end to the expected rain of goals in Orlando?
Details leading to Oshwin Andries’ death revealed
Andries was stabbed twice at a tavern
Oswhin Andries’ mother Natasha has explained how the young Stellenbosch defender met his death.
According to her, the player was stabbed twice following an argument at a tavern where he was having fun with friends.
The incident happened on January 29 after which he was taken to the hospital and released the following day.
His sickness took a turn for the worse on Saturday when he died while being taken to the hospital.
“My heart is broken into pieces, I’m hurt,” Natasha told The Daily Sun.
“Ossie went back inside and sat down but all of a sudden, the crowd went wild and when I went close, I saw Ossie was already stabbed.
“His sickness took a serious turn on Saturday afternoon so we rushed him to the hospital. He just grabbed my arm [on their way to the hospital] and that was the end.”
His brother Lee said: “His dream was bigger than playing locally and Bafana Bafana. His dream was to play overseas in Europe.”
