YOUTHFUL forward, Knowledge Musona, helped ten-man Kaizer Chiefs overcome defending champions Supersport as Zimbabwean strikers hogged the limelight in the South African premiership over the weekend.
The 2-0 win was a welcome relief for Chiefs who were under pressure throughout the game and had to cope with a man down for 35 minutes after Kaizer Motaung Jnr was dismissed for head-butting United goalkeeper in the 56th minute.
Musona could have put chiefs ahead in the 19th minute but saw a powerful volley soar over the cross bar.
But the striker was to add to his growing reputation just before the half-time break slamming home a first time shot from 16-yards to give Chief the lead against the run of play.
Chief’s sealed an unlikely victory in the 84th minute when Siyabulela Songwiqi burst clean through on goal from a counter-attack, the former Bay United man showing great composure to slot past Brown.
The win saw Kaizer Chiefs move up to second place on the log with 14 points, one behind leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.
Meanwhile Musona’s goal was the second by a Zimbabwean player in the South African premiership over the weekend.
On Saturday Nyasha Mushekwi had helped Sundowns cement their place at the top of the league table with a 1-0 win over Vasco da Gama.
The former CAPS United forward emerged the hero for his side after latching onto a shot cross in front of goal and neatly burying the ball at the back post.
The goal was Mushekwi’s second in a row after the Zimbabwean helped Sundowns into the quarter finals of a local knockout tournament the previous weekend.
