More misery for coach Gavin Hunt as Kaizer Chiefs are beaten by Cape Town City at home

There was no such luck for Chiefs four minutes later as Morris connected with a well delivered Terence Mashego’s cross from the left to beat home goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune with a low shot.

The City goal came about after Chiefs right-back Siyabonga Ngezane lost possession and was caught out of position‚ leaving Mashego with a huge space to run with the ball before delivering the pinpoint cross for Morris to score his third goal of the season.

Hunt’s charges were also overpowered by the visitors in central midfield where Mpho Makola and man-of-the-match Thato Mokeke had control of the game and dominated Chiefs’ Bernard Parker and Njabulo Blom‚ who both struggled with the pace and tempo of the game‚ especially in the first 45 minutes.

Hunt tried to shore up his midfield with the introduction of Kearyn Baccus for Ngcobo at the restart‚ pushing Parker out wide on the right and pairing the substitute with Blom in the heart of the midfield.

City‚ though‚ always looked dangerous on the counter in the second stanza‚ with Mashego continuing to give Ngezana a hard time and delivering a couple of crosses for the target man Morris.

With Chiefs failing to regain control of the match‚ City continued to press and the visitors duly stretched their lead when Bradley Ralani’s shot from just outside the area bounced off Chiefs defender Erick Mathoho and rolled into an empty net with the deflection sending Khune the wrong way.
