Kaizer Chiefs produced a dominant display to dispatch Ajax Cape Town 3-0 in their Premiership match at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane.

Bernard Parker and Siphiwe Tshabalala both scored stunning goals, while Siboniso Gaxa was clinical from a tight angle in a strong team effort from the table toppers.

With the win, Chiefs entrench their position at the top of the standings, with 30 points from their 13 matches. Meanwhile, Ajax remain on 12 points.

Chiefs came into the match off the back of their first league defeat of the season, and began the match strongly.

In the second minute, Reneilwe Letsholonyane was quick to react to a loose ball in the Ajax box and whipped in a powerful left-footed strike bringing out the best of Ajax keeper Sander Westerveld.

Ajax replied five minutes later through Matthew Booth. His powerful header shaved the crossbar and saw Itumeleng Khune dive backwards.

On the quarter hour mark, Tefu Mashamaite made a bustling run into the box from a Chiefs free kick. His flying kick in the area was just wide.

In the 33rd minute, Khune pulled off a spectacular save. Khama Billiat ran through three defenders in the box, but his fierce shot was covered by the Chiefs keeper.

It was a telling save, as three minutes later Chiefs took the lead.

Parker in the midfield went for goal, and his blistering strike took a deflection off Booth to find the back of the net.

In the 65th minute Chiefs doubled their advantage. Gaxa beat Westerveld on his near-post with a powerful shot after a deft touch from Parker released his teammate.

Tshabalala scored the third for Chiefs in the 75th minute from long range as his effort scorched into the back of the net to seal the game.
