Kaizer Chiefs launched a spectacular second half fight back to come from two goals down to come back and draw 2-2 with Black Leopards in a DStv Premiership game at the FNB Stadium on Wednesday evening. Ovidy Karuru scored a first half brace inside ten minutes, netting in the 12th and 22nd minutes before Chiefs fought back in the second half with Nkosingiphile Ngcobo sparking the fight back with a goal in the 69th minute. The comeback was complete when Khama Billiat scored a second for Chiefs in the 86th minute. 

The opening minutes of the game were fairly uneventful and out of nowhere the visitors took the lead in the 12th minute. Amakhosi keeper Itumeleng Khune in attempting to clear the ball way up field was unable to get the distance on his clearance. Instead he directed the ball straight into the path of Karuru who took a few steps forward before driving the ball from distance home into an empty net. It was a rare error by Chiefs’ always reliable skipper. 

Kaizer Chiefs (0) 2 (Ngcobo 69’, Billiat 86’)

Black Leopards (2) 2 (Karuru 12’, 22’)
