Two goals from man of the match Reneilwe 'Yeye' Letsholonyane gave Kaizer Chiefs a 2-1 Absa Premiership win over University of Pretoria.

The victory means Amakhosi have won six games in a row now and continue to look like the team to beat this season.

Ugandan striker Geofrey Massa scored from the penalty spot for AmaTuks.

Chiefs proved a threat at set play in the second minute when Tefu Mashamaite connected well with a freekick cross but his header went narrowly wide off target.

Chiefs took the lead inside the first 20 minutes when constant attack result resulted in a wonderfully worked goal when recalled midfielder Siphiwe Tshabalala set up Letsholonyane with a back heel pass with the latter driving home to give Chiefs the lead.

AmaTuks keeper Washington Arubi was again threatened when Tshabalala let rip a shot on the edge of the box but the left footed winger saw his shot fly just over the bar.

Chiefs finished the first half largely untested with stand in goalkeeper Brilliant Khuzwayo enjoying a trouble free first stanza.

The second half started on a totally different way to that of the first when Steve Barker’s men were awarded a penalty just three minutes from the resumption of the match.

Massa slammed the ball into the back of the net past Khuzwayo, who was largely responsible for giving away the spot kick.

But Khuzwayo would go on to redeem himself with an excellent one handed save to stop a deflected pile driver.

Twenty minutes from fulltime Chiefs reclaimed the lead when Letsholonyane got his second of the match after a volleyed strike from close range thanks to some brave aerial work by Nkhatha who laid off the ball for him to score.
