Zimbabwean international Eric Chipeta scored a brace but was unable to save Chippa United from a 3-2 defeat at the hands of Platinum Stars in the ABSA premiership on Tuesday evening.
Siboniso Gumede handed Platinum Stars a 19th minute lead before Eric Chipeta equalised after a well worked set piece in the 47th minute.
Platinum Stars regained the lead courtesy of Letladi Madubanya’s 63rd minute strike. The hosts made it 3-1 in the 73rd minute before Eric Chipeta reduced the arrears late in injury time as the contest ended in victory for the hosts.
Chipeta has been influential in Zimbabwe’s Afcon campaign where the warriors lie second with four points.
