Mandla Masango continued with his fine start to the season when he scored for Kaizer Chiefs in their 1-0 win over Bloemfontein Celtic.

Masango, alongside teammate George Lebese, has been in good form since the season started and last night the nippy midfielder scored his fourth goal of the new campaign.

This game started at a low pace and 80 minutes in it looked like it was heading for a draw until Masango scored with a low shot inside the box, to see his team win their third successive Absa Premiership match, and their fifth successive game in all competitions since the season began.

Kingston Nkhatha and George Lebese had chances to increase the scoreline but failed to hit the target.

Masango and his teammates will be heading into Sunday’s MTN8 semifinal second leg against Platinum Stars high in confidence after tonight’s result.

They play Stars at home this Sunday.
