Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs and Baroka played to a goalless draw in an Absa Premiership match played at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on Wednesday night.

Amakhosi moved up to second on the league standings, while Bakgaga moved down to tenth spot on the log.

Bakgaga goalkeeper Oscarine Masuluke was called into action 22 minutes into the game and he gathered Siphiwe Tshabalala's curling corner-kick with ease.

In the 30th minute, Chiefs midfielder Keagan Buchanan's cross found his teammate Erick Mathoho who headed just over the crossbar.

At the other, Chiefs keeper Itumeleng Khune gathered Tshepiso Lietsisa's dangerous corner-kick in the 41st minute to ensure that the first-half ended goalless.

The Bafana Bafana international shot-stopper was forced to deny Baroka's dribbling wizard Sipho Moeti seven minutes into the second-half.

At the other end in the 66th minute, Chiefs veteran winger Tshabalala's corner-kick was headed just wide of the target by Mitchell Katsvairo.

The last chance of the game went to Khune who decided to take a free-kick in the 85th minute, but he was denied by Masuluke and the match ended goalless.
