This is as a result of a missile-throwing incident that transpired in a match between themselves and TS Galaxy this past Sunday. They have been scheduled to appear before the PSL DC on Tuesday, 29 August 2023. Once the DC has pronounced its verdict and the matter finalised, I will then give further updates,” said PSL prosecutor Zola Majavu.

“But when you look at the overall performance of the team, we tried very hard. From our observations in terms of how we executed ourselves in the game, we were coming second in everything.

“The energy levels were not as high as we had expected. The intensity of our game was not what we had expected. I think the most important thing for us was to defend well,” he said.

“Apart from the slow start in the first half, you look at the second 25 minutes of the game. We put our foot on the ball and we were very much comfortable
 We even created a few scoring chances but on the day those chances could not be buried. So you look at it to say which areas you need to improve and work on. So if we were to defend well we would not have conceded.”

Soweto Giants Kaizer Chiefs suffered their second defeat of the 2023/24 DStv Premiership season in three matches. This follows a 1-0 loss to TS Galaxy on Sunday in Mbombela.

Galaxy scored the only goal of the match via a second-half own goal by Brandon Peterson.

Galaxy were also the dominating team in the first opening 10 minutes and posed a few threats to the Chiefs defense.

Chiefs launched their first move of the match in the tenth minute which nearly resulted in a goal. Striker Ranga Chivaviro was unlucky when his header went over the bar after a beautiful cross by Reeve Frosler.

Chiefs were dealt after striker Ranga Chivaviro was taken off with a hamstring injury as early as the 27th minute. He was replaced by Christian Saile.

Galaxy’s new signing Mpho Mvelase was having a great game on the right-hand side with some quality crosses. Unfortunately, there was no one to connect with from the Galaxy side.

Mlungisi Mbanjana was the first to go to the referees’ book after a foul in Potsane.

Saile came close for Chiefs five minutes from the break but his shot narrowly missed the target with only the keeper to beat.

Galaxy had their own attack but Sebelebele’s shot didn’t have much power to threaten Petersen. Galaxy’s shout for a handball in the 18-area box fell on deaf ears as the referee waved play on. The match went to the halftime break at 0-0.

But Galaxy came into the second half a more rejuvenated side and were quickly rewarded with a goal. A shot by new signing Higor Vidal’s shot came off keeper Peterson and resulted in an own goal for Galaxy.

Amakhosi attempted for a quick equaliser but his shot was saved by Galaxy Keeper.
