Ajax Get Their Sweet Revenge over Chiefs


AJAX CAPE TOWN handed Kaizer Chiefs their first defeat in the league this season - and their second in five days - with a hard-fought 2-1 victory at Cape Town Stadium last night.

In the absence of skipper Granwald Scott, the "new" Ajax midfield slowly clawed their way back into the game, but there seemed to be a communication breakdown with their forwards as the likes of Terror Fanteni and Khama Billiat were caught offside on plenty of occasions during the first half.

However, the first goal of the match came from some neat interplay between Fanteni and Billiat, the latter slipping a ball in between the Chiefs defence and their goalkeeper, Itumeleng Khune, in the 20th minute. Fanteni managed to get to the ball ahead of both, before going down spectacularly in the area under a Khune challenge. …
