Kaizer Chiefs easily beat log leaders Bidvest Wits 2-0 in an enthralling Absa Premiership game at Bidvest Stadium on Wednesday evening. The goals were scored by Leonardo Castro and Hendrick Ekstein, both in the second half.
The first half was a tough affair with both teams struggling to get any real goalscoring opportunities.
George Maluleka captained the side in the absence of Itumeleng Khune and Willard Katsande, who were both out injured.
The Columbian striker Castro got into the right position to put Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya’s cross from the left into the back of the net in the 58th minutes before Ekstein netted the second goal. Castro passed the ball deep to Parker, who crossed the ball from inside the box, from the left, to Ekstein, who easily finished in front of goal. That was the 78th minute.
Kaizer Chiefs are now on 24 points from 17 games, moving up to fifth position on the Absa Premiership log.
