Kaizer Chiefs Goalkeeper Brandon Peterson Bungles Ball at His Feet in Another Ugly Howler: Video
- Kaizer Chiefs have gotten the Cavin Johnson era off to a losing start against Golden Arrows
- Brandon Johnson gifted Mabhuti Khenyeza's team the lead with a horrible footwork error
- Peterson's mistake was the third of its kind this season and took the shine of the new era
The new manager's positivity lasted all of 20 minutes.
Cavin Johnson's interim reign at Kaizer Chiefs has begun the way Molefi Ntseki's tenure ended.
The Amakhosi were beaten 2-1 in Hammersdale, in part due to a clanger from goalkeeper Brandon Peterson.
Arrows took the lead in the 20th minute when, trying to play the ball from the back, Peterson received a pass from his defender.
Knox Mutizwa applied the pressure and as Peterson tried to control the ball into space away from the striker, the ball got stuck under his feet on the stodgy playing surface and Mutizwa poked the loose ball into the net.
It was not all doom and gloom as Chiefs hit back within three minutes.
Replays show Sifiso Hlanti was blatantly offside but his back post header stood to tie the game up at 1-1.
Arrows came at the more focused team after the break and Mutizwa netted the winner with a calm side-footed effort.
This was not the start Johnson would have wanted, who said after the game:
"I got to give credit to the boys. I thought they played well under the conditions. In the second half we lost the ball cheaply. We have to be a lot more calmer, especially near the opponent's goals."
Man of the match was Arrows captain Nduduzo Sibiya who spoke after the game about sticking to the game plan and listening to the coach.
Arrows coach Khenyeza confirmed, saying:
"We conceded unnecessarily from a set piece. They kept on working hard and we always try to maintain tactical discipline. They have a fighting spirit. We don't stop when we are tired, we stop when we are finished."

Mosimane talk continues
Sports Brief recently reported on the incessant talk around Pitso Mosimane returning to South Africa.
For Kaizer Chiefs fans, Mosimane is the right candidate and his availability can not be confirmed soon enough.
Mosimane's return would be fairytale stuff as would the ensuing rivalry between master and apprentice.
