A goalless first half at the Neson Mandela Bay Stadium, but it was the visitors who were showing intent, especially as the half wore on.
But Chippa were awarded a penalty on the hour mark, when Anthony Laffor was fouled in the box by Bathusi Aubaas. Andile Mbenyane stepped up and made no mistake from the spot

Baroka walked away victors against Lidoda Duvha in the Limpopo derby on Saturday evening.
A goalless first half at the Peter Mokaba Stadium, with Leopards maybe edging it. They held a slight possession advantage, and had more efforts at goal, although neither team really threatened the goalmouth.
In the second half, Leopards would regret not using those half chances as Baroka took the lead on the hour mark, as a shot by Goodman Mosele, was deflected by Kenneth Nthatheni into his own net.
Joslin Kamatuka made it two in the 65th minute, as he chased onto a long clearance from his goalkeeper Oscarine Masuleke and made no mistake.
Nthatheni made amends for his earlier blunder, as he headed in from a Tumelo Khutlang corner to pull one back for Leopards.
Masuleke had to be sharp to keep Baroka ahead, when he made a good save from Khutlang’s effort in the 88th minute.
