David Radebe plundered a hat-trick as Kaizer Chiefs demolished Manning Rangers 4-0 in a Castle Premier Soccer League match at the Johannesburg Stadium on Saturday.
The former Free State Stars striker gave Amakhosi the lead after 16 minutes before grabbing a second half brace.
Veteran midfielder John 'Shoes Moshoeu continued to prove his worth to Chiefs with yet another goal to double Amakhosis lead two minutes before the break.
Radede then made it three after 66 minutes before completing his hat-trick ten minutes before full-time.
Chiefs could even afford the luxury of substituting their goalkeeper and captain Brian Baloyi late in the match after his midweek exertions for Bafana Bafana, paving the way for Aubrey Mathibe to earn his debut.
The win catapults Chiefs to fifth and certainities for the SAA Top Eight Competition, while the same showpiece is now a bridge too far for Rangers, who are in 11th place.
