Kaizer Chiefs’ winless streak in domestic football continued after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Bloemfontein Celtic at the FNB Stadium on Saturday night.
The last time Amakhosi won a domestic match was on October 27 when they narrowly defeated Chippa United 1-0.
Since that win, Chiefs have played six DStv Premiership games without a win. They also lost the two legs of the MTN8 semifinal against Orlando Pirates (3-0 and 2-0).
The slumbering Soweto giants are far down in the standings in 12th position with seven points from eight games.
Gavin Hunt’s men are failing to click and their attack continues to misfire.
Even in this game it was a defensive midfielder, Anthony Agay, who scored for them. The Kenyan scored with a header in the eighth minute after a cross from Khama Billiat.
It was for the first time since their win against Chippa that they scored first. In all the games that came after, their fragile defence has been exposed with opponents scoring first.
A continued concern for Hunt will be the lack of synergy between main strikers Billiat and Leonardo Castro. The duo have been playing together since their days at Mamelodi Sundowns, but they are now out of sync with each other.
The team is lacking in creativity upfront and their midfield is not able to supply the forwards with quality balls.
Celtic on the other hand looked to punish the opponents on the counter. In the second half, Phunya Sele Sele changed tactics and took the attack to the home side.
Coach John Maduka rang in the changes and it was the substitutes who changed the game. Winger Tumelo Mangweni grabbed the equaliser in the 67th minute with a strike inside the box.
Mangweni received the assist from another sub, Ryan De Jongh. Celtic went for the kill as they saw their opponents had nothing left in the tank. However, they were able to hold on for the single point.
