Billiat, Castro pile more missery on Amazulu as Chiefs go top

Kaizer Chiefs are back at the summit of the ABSA Premiership table after a hard-fought 2-0 away win over Amazulu today.

Late goals from Colombian Leonardo Castro and Zimbabwe international Khama Billiat were enough for Amakhosi to leapfrog Polokwane City into first possition on goal difference.

Chiefs could not penetrate the Amazulu backline for most of the game but Castro finally broke the deadlock when he reacted quickly to a Lebogang Manyama free-kick which had hit the upright.

Billiat put the final nail on the Amazulu coffin when he finished off from a Kearyn Baccus pass in stoppage time, his first goal this season.

Consequently, Amazulu remain bottom of the table with a paltry two points from 6 matches as their woes in the 2019-20 campaign continue.
