Parker’s brace helps Chiefs to 10th win

2014-12-04 00:00

A BRACE from Bernard Parker helped Kaizer Chiefs record their 10th win of the Absa Premiership ­after beating Bidvest Wits 3-0 in a league match at Bidvest Stadium last night.

It was a slow start to the game, but sparked into life in the 21st minute when Bernard Parker opened the scoring.

The Chiefs striker did well to work his way into the box after running onto a flick-on from Kingston Nhatha and then proceeded to fire the ball home from an acute angle 12-yards out on the left side of the box, 1-0.

Wits nearly hit back in the 28th minute when Sameehg Doutie saw his 24-yard volley beat the keeper, but strike the outside of the left post ­before going out of play.

Parker turned provider on the half-hour mark when he played Reneilwe Letsholonyane through on goal, but Moneeb Josephs was quickly of his line to smother the midfielder and prevent him from doubling the lead.

In the 37th minute, though, there was nothing Josephs could do as he stood rooted to the spot when Erick Mathoho headed home a left-sided free-kick from Siphiwe Tshabalala, 2-0.

Wits nearly pulled a goal back three minutes later when Ben Motshwari unleashed a 30-yard pile-driver that was brilliantly tipped around the post by the Amakhosi goalkeeper.

The second half saw the home side dominating matters with almost 70% of the possession, but still they found themselves conceding a third goal in the 69th minute.

Some swift play from chiefs saw Parker behind the defence and he made no mistake when he chipped the goalkeeper in a one-on-one situation to make it 3-0.

Wits tried to find some consolation after conceding their third goal, but chiefs kept it tight at the back to pick up all three points.
