Zimbabwe’s born international midfielder, Khama Billiat’s solitary goal against Chippa United has finally gave Kaizer Chiefs a positive glimpse towards lifting South Africa’s (SA) Absa Premiership title.
On the 10th minute, Billiat separated the two teams after sliding into a Nurkovic cross to get his second goal of the season after 23 appearances for the Golden and Black boys.
Nevertheless, Billiat’s countryman Elvis Moyo was the second Chippa United player to be shown a red card reducing the Clever Boys to 9 men.
In addition, the Warriors forward has been going through a rough patch this season, believed to be the worst moment in his career since he arrived in Absa ten years ago.
Early this week, South African coach Mlungisi ‘Proffesor’ Ngobeni accused Billiat of age cheating, claiming he doesn’t play like a 29 year old.
The skilful midfielder is currently facing a stiff time in his career, with a lot of criticism ranging from the Kaizer Chiefs fans to South African media.
Khama Billiat secured a move from Amasandawana to Amakhosi in 2018 ranking him as the highest-paid player in Absa premiership.
Chiefs are leading the log standings ahead of Downs by a goal difference with only a game to spare the season.
Both Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs are level on points however the latter has a better goal difference.
On the other hand, former Warriors shot stopper George Chigova, Zimbabwean born midfielder Walter Musona and Striker Charlton Mashumba’s Polokwane City have been relegated.
The Sunshine Boys lost 2 nil in their crucial match against 2nd placed Sundowns, a win could have done them a favour to survive the chop.
