Welcome to the Home of the Chilli Boys
Bidvest Wits’ Absa Premiership title hopes were dealt a blow on Saturday evening when they were held to a 1-1 draw by Chippa United at Bidvest Stadium in Johannesburg.
Looking to close the gap on log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns, the Clever Boys had to fight back from a goal down just to claim a point against an in-form Chilli Boys team who put up an impressive showing – especially in the first half.
The result leaves Wits still three points behind
Dan ‘Dance’ Malesela has heaped praise on the players following a comprehensive 4-1 drubbing of Platinum Stars at a packed Isaac Wolfson Stadium on Wednesday, 27 April 2016.
The win moved Chilliboys to seventh place in the Absa Premiership table with 37 points from 26 matches. Substitute, Lerato Manzini was the hero on the day banging a hat-trick after Andile Mbenyane had given the Port Elizabeth based outfit a lead inside ten minutes.
Malesela rewarded with the three-year contract last month
A hat-trick from second half substitute Lerato Manzini saw Chippa United up to seventh on the Absa Premiership table after beating Platinum Stars 4-1 at the Isaac Wolfson Stadium on Wednesday.
Chippa are in seventh place on 37 points from 26 matches while the loss for Platinum Stars leaves them in third place with 44 points and in real danger of dropping out of the top three if Kaizer chiefs win later on Wednesday.
