Kaizer Chiefs killer Moseamedi strikes again and hands Middendorp a satisfying win

In football you have giantkillers‚ and in South African soccer there is the Kaizer Chiefs killer‚ Judas Moseamedi‚ who banged in two past his favourite team and earn Maritzburg United a 2-0 DStv Premiership win at FNB Stadium on Saturday.

Hunt - suffering a two-window Fifa transfer ban - has not changed in personnel from last season. Only a few younger players have become more prominent‚ and some alterations made in the way the side is structured.

Middendorp had his side set up - with a tough back three of Nazeer Allie‚ Clayton Daniels and Riyaaz Ismail‚ and United sitting deep - to shut Amakhosi out‚ and then try to sneak more than a draw when those rare opportunities inevitably arose. When they did‚ Moseamedi pounced gleefully.

United are a hard-working team on any day. They were impeccably structured‚ closed the spaces and covered the yards to deny Amakhosi a chance in an opening half where both teams' conservatism saw neither goalkeeper tested.

Chiefs lacked a pacy full-back to get forward on the overlap and did not get behind Maritzburg‚ as the closest either side came to a chance was Khama Billiat's speculative drive that was well wide.

A procession of substitutes after the break from both coaches was aimed at finding a player capable of breaking the deadlock. For Maritzburg‚ two played a hand in Moseamedi's goals.
