Gavin Hunt suffers another defeat again as Chief’s get knocked out of the MTN8. Kazier Chiefs run for the MTN8 cames to a screeching stop as they lost to rivals Orlando Pirates at the FNB Stadium on Sunday. The goals which came from Fortune Makaringe and Linda Mnatambo were enough to secure a win for the team which both came during the second half. the final score would have been embarrassing for Kaizer if Mntambo had been a little more ruthless.
The results of the match means that Pirate won the two legged tie 5-0 on aggregate after they won 3-0 in Orlando last week.
Returning from German after he left the country to see his son Fabio after a horrific accident on Münchener Strasse in Nuremberg that left the 24-year-old in a critical condition on October 23, Pirates coach Josef Zinnbauer was happy to see his team secure a place in the rand finale.
“I am happy about this‚ congratulations to the team‚ congratulations to [Deon] Hotto as the best player [man of the match] on this day‚ so yeah‚ I am happy‚” he said in his post match television interview.
However it was not all smiles going around the stadium as the Chiefs coach had a rather resigned look on his face but did say it was a fair well played game;
“I think it [the result] is a true reflection‚ you know‚ and something that we have to knuckle down‚ work harder and do the other part of the game which we are not doing.
“You know there is another part of the game we are not doing and it is because of a lot of things‚ but we have got to try and get that right‚” Hunt said.
The game started out promising for Kaizer Chiefs as they dominated most part of the first half and got the fans amped up but as the match progressed their perfomance seemed to shift and Pirates took control of the game securing a 3-0 win against Chiefs.
Pirates will now face Bloemfontein Celtic in the final in a match and we eager to see how this game plays out. As the Bucs last won in 2011 and Celtic have not won it since 2005 that was before they changed their name from SAA Supa 8.

The Bloemfontein side advanced 2-1 on aggregate after they played to a 1-1 draw in the first leg at Lucas Moripe Stadium in Atteridgeville a week ago.
It was a nail bitting game were almost at the end of the second half Victor Letsoalo strike guaranteed Celtic a seat at the table.
