The Amakhosi faithful have not taken their latest defeat well.

Molefi Ntseki required a police escort at the end of Kaizer Chiefs' 1-0 Carling Knockout Cup defeat against Amazulu.

Angry supporters gathered near the tunnel and again began hurling bottles at the beleaguered Chiefs boss.

Chiefs had 12 shots on goal but only managed to get two of those on target.

Meanwhile, Amazulu had the same amount of shots on target, but six on goal in total.

What mattered the most was a goal, which Taariq Fielies provided three minutes from the end of regulation time. Fielies pounced on a loose ball at the edge of the box and guided it past an outstretched Itumeleng Khune.

Ntseki had anguish written all over his face at the final whistle, anticipating the backlash he would receive from a demanding supporter base.

Chiefs fans may not be afforded the luxury of watching their team in person as a ruling by a recent disciplinary committee made provision for a stadium ban for the unruly fans.

This incident will be the third time in five weeks that Ntseki has had to have the police protect him as he exits the pitch.

Chiefs fans still found it in themselves to vote for Keegan Dolly as the man of the match, gifting him R100 000.

Helping to explain the team's predicament, Dolly said after the game:

"Very disappointing, we wanted to win this game. This was one cup that we felt we stood a chance. It's a hard one to take.
"As players, we feel for the people that come out each and every week. There is no player that wants to come on the field and not deliver. We are really trying our best and we plead with the Khosination to keep on supporting us."

Empty stadium incoming

Sports Brief recently reported on Chiefs facing an empty stadium if their supporters did not adhere to the rules.

Chiefs admitted to two counts of misconduct connected with fans’ behaviour at fixtures played in September.

The suspended fines and possible stadium ban could now come into affect if Chiefs are again found guilty.
