WITH only two Absa Premiership matches played by far, one coach has already bite the dust after the newly promoted side Chippa United fired their coach, Manqoba Mngqithi.
Mngqithi was fired shortly after the Cape side lost their first home match, a 2-1 to Free State Stars last night in a league match played at the Athlone Stadium. This was United’ second defeat after they lost their opening match, a narrowly 1-0 to Mamelodi Sundowns at the Lucas Moripe Stadium a week ago.
In another league match played last night, Maritzburg United handed over AmaZulu their second defeat when they beat them 2-0.
Meanwhile elsewhere this evening, BidVest Wits allowed the determined Black Leopards to come back and force a 2-2 draw in another league match played at the BidVest Stadium with Pretoria University recording their first-ever league match victory in the elite league with a 1-0 victory away to Golden Arrows at the Cedric Sugar Ray Stadium.
At the Dobonville Stadium, Moroka Swallows beat Ajax Cape Town 3-1 with Bloemfontein Celtic beating Platinum Stars 2-1 at the Free State Stadium while SuperSport United and Orlando Pirates shared a spoil point after playing to a goalless draw at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane.
