Kaizer Chiefs secured their first win of the DStv Premiership season with a 3-0 triumph over Maritzburg United on Tuesday evening.

Two new additions from Chiefs following Saturday’s opening day loss to Royal AM saw new signings Dillon Solomons and George Matlou get their first starts.

Chiefs broke the deadlock four minutes in after Ashley Du Preez burst through left of the area and finished off a loose clearance from point-blank range and furthermore opened his account for the club.

It didn’t take the Amakhosi long to go two up as indecisive play from United in defence brought a turnover of possession which Keagan Dolly capitalized and executed with ease.

Maritzburg almost got back in the game following the half-hour mark when Friday Samu’s first-time volley way outside the six-yard area cracked the top of the woodwork.

Chiefs: Bvuma, Solomons, Ngezana, Kwinika, Frosler, Matlou, Sithebe, Maart, Du Preez, Dolly, Billiat
