Dikwena had the first effort on target in the 12th minute when Gerald Phiri fired a 30-yard free-kick goalwards, but Itumelng Khune made a good save to deny him.

Two minutes later Phiri was in the thick of the action again with a long range pile-driver, but Khune made another great acrobatic save.

In the 22nd minute Stars took the lead when Solomon Mathe powerfully headed home a left-wing cross from Gerald Phiri, 1-0.

Chiefs tried to take the game by the scruff of the neck after going behind and controlled the possession stakes, but still they struggled to breakdown a resilient Dikwena defence.

Instead it was Stars who doubled their lead a minute before the break when Chiefs failed to clear a cross from Abia Nale, allowing Enocent Mkhabela to turn the ball home with an overhead-kick following a goalmouth scramble, 2-0.

Chiefs came out firing at the start of the second half and came close to pulling a goal back in the 52nd minute, but Siphiwe Tshabalala curled his 16-yard effort just wide of the target.

On the hour mark Tshabalala turned provider when his right-wing cross was met by Gustavo Paez, but his header was well-saved by the Platinum Stars goalkeeper, Steven Hoffman.

In the 69th minute, a mistake by Willard Katsande in defence allowed Bongi Ntuli to break through on goal, but with just Khune to beat he fired wide.

Steve Komphela threw on Ryan Moon for Tsepo Masilela in the 80th minute as they looked for a way back into the encounter.

Chiefs piled players forward in the final 10 minutes, but could not find a break through as Platinum Stars held on for the 2-0 win.

@Mr-Brown-envelope "This is what happens when you worry too much about what your neighbours are doing"~~~ on the contrary this is what happens when you don't worry about what your neighbours are doing, you lose track of their injuries and such because you are not paying attention to them. If I was fixating on what my neighbours are up to; I would have known the minute the cow got injured. Pule has been getting game time of late. He featured in the last two games

you are busy calling for a contracted coach's head instead of advising your players who seem to be on go slow strike.Steve is gonna chop 20 of them again.It happened before.

It was about two years ago that I duly indicated that the club was too big for Steve Khompela and was labelled a prophet of doom. I can proudly say: I told you so.

You don't make a friend with your players and treat them as a workers not your children and that's the area you have failed and if you gave them your intentions in terms of building a strong team that will always respect the K-C jersey but instead you were covering up for them

Panyaza Lesufi and the Concortium must buy this poor team. Maybe when they become Swallows they'll be strong and competitive.
