JOHANNESBURG – Kaizer Chiefs' unbeaten run in the league this season came to an end at the FNB Stadium on Saturday evening with a 1-0 defeat to Polokwane City.
The win, courtesy of a Jabulani Maluleke penalty, takes the Limpopo club level on points with Chiefs at the top of the log.
Based on the balance of play though, and considering that Polokwane keeper Mwenya Chibwe was named Man of the Match, the home side will have felt that they threw away the three points.
Despite enjoying the lion's share of first half possession, Amakhosi's lack of incision meant that the opposition goal was rarely threatened.
And with Itumeleng Khune watching on from the Chiefs bench, goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi put his side on the back-foot after just 15 minutes when he clumsily upended Charlton Mashumba to concede a penalty.
