Kaizer Chiefs scraped a much-needed 1-0 win over AmaZulu in a DStv Premiership clash at Jonsson Kings Park Stadium on Wednesday afternoon, with Samir Nurkovic scoring the only goal of the game.
The result sees the Amakhosi break a seven-game winless streak which stretched back to October and rise to 10th place on the log, putting a buffer of four points between themselves and the relegation zone. Usuthu remain in ninth place on 10 points, now ahead of Chiefs only on goal difference.
