A thrilling end to the game saw Kaizer Chiefs emerge 2-1 winners over SuperSport United in an Absa Premiership clash at Cape Town Stadium on Saturday.

Amakhosi attacker William Twala struck home with one minute of regulation time remaining following goals from George Maluleka and Jeremy Brockie for either side.

The result moves Chiefs up to third - eight points behind Mamelodi Sundowns. SuperSport remain 10th.

Matsatsantsa were the better side in the early exchanges and should’ve capitalised on a catalogue of set-piece chances in the opening fifteen minutes.

The best of those falling to Clayton Daniels who raced to the near post, but failed to hit the target with his towering effort.

Having hit the upright in the first-half, Maluleka found the back of the net for the second game in succession. The former SuperSport midfielder on hand to tap in from close range following good work by Siphiwe Tshabalala in 73rd minute.

Ronwen Williams denied Chiefs a second soon after, the Bafana Bafana goalkeeper with a top save to keep out Lucky Baloyi’s stinging effort.

The stop proved pivotal as Brockie leveled matters with six minutes of regulation time remaining. Tsepo Masilela’s woeful clearance fell favourable for the New Zealand striker who rifled home.

Steve Komphela’s troops though would have the final say as Twala pounced on a long throw in the 89th minute to secure all three points for the hosts.

SuperSport have now lost two, drawn one and won but a single game since Stuart Baxter’s appointment.
