Paez On Target Again As Chiefs Stretch Unbeaten Run

Siboniso Mawandla | The Republic Mail

Kaizer Chiefs stretched their unbeaten run in the league to 11 matches with a comfortable 2-0 win over Bloemfontein Celtic on Wednesday night.

George Maluleka’s first half strike appeared to be enough for Amakhosi on the night, but Gustavo Paez put the game to bed with his third goal in two matches.

As it stands, the Glamour Boys are level on points with second-placed Cape Town City, who will be in action on Friday, and they’re two points behind leaders Bidvest Wits.

Steve Komphela stuck to his tried and tested, bringing back Tsepo Masilela and Ramahlwe Mphahlele to strengthen the Amakhosi defense and provide width and pace going forward.

Luc Eymael also tinkered with the team that beat Mbombela United in the Nedbank Cup, but the likes of Lantshene Phalane, Lyle Lakay and Musa Nyatama among others, kept their places in the team.
