Kaizer Chiefs made it three wins in a row in the DStv Premiership when they thrashed Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila on Tuesday evening.


Amakhosi came into the game having secured wins over AmaZulu FC and Cape Town City.


They took the lead in the 19th minute when Nkosingiphile Ngcobo beat Tshakhuma goalkeeper Washington Arubi with a brilliant finish.


The second goal was netted by second-half substitute Lebogang Manyama six minutes after the hour-mark to make it 2-0 in a game which was played at FNB Stadium


Happy Mashiane then sealed Chiefs’ 3-0 victory when he netted in the last minute and the win took Amakhosi to the seventh spot on league standings.


While Tshakhuma remained 15th on the standings which is the relegation playoff spot.


Meanwhile, Mamelodi Sundowns are now winless in two matches after they were held to a draw by a stubborn Bloemfontein Celtic side.


Masandawana came into the match having drawn 0-0 with SuperSport United in the Tshwane Derby encounter.


Sundowns were frustrated by Celtic’s resolute defence in the first-half and they created one clear chance and Kermit Erasmus was denied by goalkeeper Jackson Mabokgwane.


Mabokgwane picked up an injury in the second-half and his replacement Sipho Chaine produced fantastic saves to deny Lesedi Kapinga and Erasmus at the Lucas Moripe Stadium.


The game ended in a 0-0 draw and the result left Sundowns placed at the top of the standings, while Celtic remained 11th on the table.
