Reminder of the match report:
Chiefs got the first attempt on goal through Nkosingiphile Ngcobo as he curled the ball from outside the box.
However, the attempt went wide, much to the relief of the Sekhukhune United bench as the ball went inches wide.
Amakhosi went close to scoring the equaliser as Reeve Frosler picked Daniel Cardoso who blasted his shot over the crossbar despite being alone in the small box.
Thabo Rakhale made an effort as he tested Daniel Akpeyi from outside the box but the Nigerian goalkeeper did well to parry the ball outside for a corner.
Ngcobo then found himself alone outside the box and he fired in to give Chiefs the lead after 24 minutes.
Nothing much happened after that goal as Chiefs continued to dominate, and the home side went into the dressing rooms in the lead.
Both Chiefs and Sekhukhune did not create clear-cut chances but the visitors improved in keeping the ball.
Fatigue then crept in for Chiefs, understandably so as they had little time to prepare for this game, and that allowed Sekhukhune to dominate.
The final 15 minutes of the game saw Ngcobo and Castro squander the chance to score from inside the box.
As the game approached its end, substitute Phathutshedzo Nange doubled Amakhosi’s lead, much to the delight of the Chiefs bench.
Ultimately, Chiefs walked away with all the maximum points to move up to second on the PSL log.
