JOHANNESBURG – Kaizer Chiefs continue their search for a first Absa Premiership win of the 2018-19 season following their 1-1 draw away to Baroka FC on Tuesday night.
Despite running riot in the quarter-finals of the MTN8 over the weekend, thrashing Free State Stars 3-0 to set up a date with SuperSport United in the last four of the competition, Amakhosi were goal-shy at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Tuesday.
This means that coach Giovanni Solinas is still yet to register a victory in the league, managing a draw in his opening game in charge against champions Mamelodi Sundowns and then being taught a lesson by Bidvest Wits in a 3-1 defeat a week ago.
Chiefs would have been confident travelling to Polokwane on the back of a Khama Billiat-inspired win, although Solinas did warn that they would face a Baroka side that is “fresh” after getting the weekend off because they were not involved in the MTN8.
The game got off to a rather tepid start, with neither of the two sides threatening. Chiefs were forced to make some changes to their winning team on Saturday night.
