The Kaizer Chiefs are in crisis and club management will need to take a close look at the situation with the team losing their fourth consecutive game on Saturday afternoon.

Amakhosi attended Saturday’s DStv Premiership match against Cape Town City at FNB Stadium after winning last time on April 2. They have since tied one and lost four as their season takes further hits.
City got into the game faster and started dictating it, showing a little more ambition for the future. Their efforts were rewarded on 15 minutes, benefiting from another defensive error by the Chiefs.
Daniel Cardoso tried to play the ball with his head towards goalkeeper Brandon Petersen but didn’t get a clean touch. And Craig Martin came in first and sent him past forward Petersen to give City a head start.
The goal saw the Chiefs crawl out of their shell and they started putting together some decent passes but couldn’t find the right balls in the last third. City were happy to sit down and come out on the break, which almost helped towards the end of time. Mduduzi Mdantsane couldn’t find the connection with a cross from the left.
It took City 15 minutes in the second half to score another goal. This time Terrence Mashego was granted a free throw inside the Amakhosi area, went one on one with the goalkeeper and beat him at the near post.
Dumisani Zuma, introduced towards the end of the match, scored Amakhosi’s complementary goals with less than 10 minutes to go.
The Chiefs remain in fifth place with their hopes of severely reducing seats in CAF competitions. City have come close to second place Royal AM with a single point now separating the two sides.
