Kaizer Chiefs beat Cameroon's PWD Bamenda 1-0 in a Champions League match played at the Limbe Omnisport Stadium on Sunday.

Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt voiced his unhappiness with the state of the pitch at Limbe Omnisport Stadium on the eve of this encounter but Amakhosi certainly acquainted themselves very well with their surroundings after Eric Mathoho scored the winner six minutes from the final whistle.

Chiefs had to fight for the priceless away win as Bamenda were awarded a penalty by the referee right at the death, but Amakhosi goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune made the save to ensure that the visitors returned to Naturena with the continental win in the bag.

Hunt's charges have found the going tough in the domestic league but they ensured that the club returned from Cameroon with a hard-worn result after years in Champions League wilderness.
