Although they scored first through Siphiwe Tshabalala, Kaizer Chiefs lost their Absa Premiership tie 3-1 to Chippa United at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Saturday evening.

On the other side, a brace from Lerato Manzini and one strike courtesy of Tshwarelo Bereng gave the Chilli Boys the advantage.

In the wake of the loss, Steve Komphela's men now move to number six on the log table with 17 points.

Although both sides started on a high, there were no clear cut chances in the opening 10 minutes, yet the hosts had a free kick from which Marc van Heerden failed to hit the target.

However, in the 15th minute, the hosts’ goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi, who was away from his line, failed to clear the ball convincingly and it fell to Tshabalala, whose finish on the d-line made it 1-0.

Right on the half-hour mark, Khuzwayo produced a fine save to deny David Zulu from a well struck shot from a distance.

The second stanza continued to thrill as the hosts pushed for an equaliser in the second stanza, but Amakhosi defenders Lorenzo Gordinho and keeper Brilliant Khuzwayo stood firm to deny the Chilli Boys.

Just with 20 minutes remaining on the clock, Manzini pulled one back for the hosts as he headed home from a pin point cross from Diamond Thopola on the right.

However, two minutes later Bereng made it 2-1 to Dan Malesela's side when another cross from Thopola reached the winger unmarked on the left to easily beat Khuzwayo at his near post.

The Chilli Boys were not done yet when they made it 3-1 with four minutes to go when Manzini completed hid brace after receiving a lay off from Buyani Sali.

Manzini could have completed his hat-trick in the dying minutes of the tie when Sali again laid the ball off for him to finish, but the forward missed the ball completely.

For the hosts, the victory elevates them to the ninth spot on the log table with 13 points after 11 matches.
