Eric Mathoho scored the winner for Kaizer Chiefs in what was a ding-dong affair in their opening game of the new PSL season; as Amakhosi defeated Highland Park 3-2 on the road.
Kaizer Chiefs Boss, Ernst Middendorp opted for 24 year-old Bruce Bvuma in goal ahead of Nigeria international Daniel Akpeyi.
Bvuma who has also deputized since the absence of first choice goalkeeper, Itumeleng Khune was between the sticks in the 2-0 Cup friendly defeat to Orlando Pirates last weekend.
On Sunday, the young goalie conceded two goals, but he wasn’t let down by his teammates, who put three past the opponent’s goal tender and secured a winning start to the new season.
