Many expected the Glamour Boys to bounce back from their Nedbank Cup shocker however It was another lackluster first 45 minutes at the Cape Town Stadium.
There was however something to amuse Kaizer Chiefs fans when captain Bernard Parker hilariously forgot the match was being played.
Instead of keeping his eye on the ball, the veteran was shouting instructions to his teammates thus resulting in his team comically losing possession of the ball. Watch the incident below

Baxter looking to ‘build’ for the future!
“Everybody in the dressing room was absolutely gutted. Of course we would class ourselves as one of the teams with aspirations to win this trophy.” Kaizer Chiefs mentor Stuart Baxter said.
“We’ve been playing well enough and we are close to the top of the table. We believed a good cup run is not impossible for us, so going out brings up the equivalent level of disappointment.
“That trophy disappeared. We’ve got to do the best we can now in the league to finish as high as we can. We have to try marrying the short-term goal of winning a game or two with the long-term goals of building the squad and becoming that solid team.
“The long-term Kaizer Chiefs goal is balancing the squad, buying and selling the players. We need to bring through some kids and find a way to get all our better players on the field.
“All of that is a bit more medium to long term. The cup is short-term, so we didn’t want to throw that chance away. I think we have done, and therefore no one is happy with that or with the performance.
“It’s a cup we didn’t win and now we have to show in the league that we are building something that can lead to something next season.”
