Kaizer Chiefs have returned to the top spot on the PSL log after seeing the back of the net twice on Heritage Day.

Colombian Leonardo Castro and Zimbabwean Khama Billiat scored late goals to beat AmaZulu 2-0. The first goal of the match was also Castro’s first goal this season while Billiat also scored his first in his fourth appearance.

Amakhosi welcomed back goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune after a long injury absence and the South African international pulled off several superb saves when the match was goalless.

Khune also took back his captain’s armband from Bernard Parker, who had been leading the team in his and Willard Katsande’s absence since last season.
