Kaizer Chiefs trio lauded after Soweto derby win


Kaizer Chiefs' in-form front-three have been lauded following the club's impressive derby win over Swallows FC on Sunday.

Kaizer Chiefs climbed to second place in the DStv Premiership standings on Sunday after recording a comprehensive 3-1 away win over Soweto rivals, Swallows.

Keagan Dolly handed the Amakhosi the perfect start when he opened the scoring on the stroke of half-time before Khama Billiat netted either side of the break to put Stuart Baxter's side in a commanding position.

Lebohang Mokoena pulled on back for the Dube Birds just after the hour mark but by then the damage had been done, and Baxter was quick to praise his attacking triumvirate for the win.

"I think the front three, Bernard [Parker] included, all did very well," he said after the match. "They pressed and they pressed very well in the first half and that resulted in us getting a couple of very good chances.

"If you give them an inch, they will take a yard. They found themselves a bit of space and three goals was the result."

Between them, Billiat, Dolly and Parker have scored 13 of Kaizer Chiefs' 17 goals in the league this season, accounting for nearly 77% per cent of the club's success in front of goal for the campaign thus far.
