Orlando Pirates get a late winner against Bloemfontein Celtic

Posted: 12 December 2010 Time: 17:42

A late winner from substitute Patrick Malokase handed Orlando Pirates a 2-1 win over Bloemfontein Celtic on Sunday.

Daine Klate had opened the scoring on 7 minutes, before Nathan Paulse got the equaliser for Celtic 13 minutes from time.

Bucs move up to the third on the table on 18 points (six adrift of leaders Mamelodi Sundowns), while Celtic have dropped to sixth and remain on 16 points.

Pirates opened the scoring with a premeditated, training-ground move.

Moeneeb Josephs’ long goal-kick was superbly controlled in the Celtic penalty area by Klate before he cracked a left-footed volley past Patrick Tignyemb.

Celtic appealed vociferously for offside, but the goal was correctly allowed to stand.

The visitors gradually grew into the game and began to threaten, but Pirates continued to create opportunities from the wide positions.

Just after the half hour mark Segolela swung in a good cross from the left that was met by Thulasizwe Mbuyane, whose header rebounded off the near post.

The first half ended with a seven-minute spell of injury time, after earlier injuries to Lucky Lekgwathi and Moeneeb Josephs.

Lekgwathi took a heavy knock to the head in the first half and was replaced by Thando Mdluli for the second half.

Celtic were certainly the better team in the second half, and Nathan Paulse equalised with a low shot that beat Josephs’ right hand and went in off the inside of the upright.

After that it looked like Celtic were going to take the game, as they had all the momentum on their side.

But a lapse at the back in the 87th minute saw former Celtic star Patrick Malokase head the winning goal off a superb Ruben Cloete cross.

After a blander by that keeper called Josephs poor Karolo has to take the blame.
Thanks to Malokase, poor Karolo was gona be under fire because of the stupid mistakes from Josephs and Johannes.

Now the real championship material are starting to emerge not the one win/cup wonder team. League is marathon and that's where real champions are made not cups.

Can anyone explain to me why in RSA we like celebrating mediocrity? My question is based on the 'Man of the Match' accolade given to Nthethe who undeservedly receipt the award...you know why? Because he displayed a high flying, brutal and unsporting kick on Malokase. Shuuuuuu...it is still confusing how the decision was made to award him.

Anyway, abashweeeeeeeeeeeeee balakaletsi...shapaaaaa tse ntsho shaaaaaapppppaaaaaaaa!

you can call it 'steal' or any how you want it, but Pirates are on for the race of the league.

i can't see any comments from chips, where are you, it wont hurt to say 'congrats baka baka'. VV must know that to be the best coach, he must also win league games as well, not winning one game against pirates after a several lots!

Some of us are sitting comfortably on top of the league table, of which I don’t think it’s save for their pathetic supporters and players.
Just ask Papic if It’s save to sit there for the whole season only to be removed with one game to go.
It’s not save to sit there especially if you are a clown or a rat.
FNB MASSACRE.

IT IS SO RIDICULOUS HOW KICKOFF TALKS ABOUT PIRATES IN A VERY BIASED WAY....PLS kickoff WHAT DO U MEAN BY 'steal a win'? PIRATES WON CONVINCINGLY! WHEN U REPORTED KAIZER CHIEFS YESTERDAY,U PAINTED IT LIKE IT WAS AN HONOURABLE LOSS...TODAY THE REPORT IS THAT THE BUCS STOLE D GOALS AT GUN POINT....MAYBE U WOULD HAVE PUT IT THIS WAY....orlando pirates at gun-point,ordered bloem celtic players not to touch d ball all through the duration of d game as klate and malokaze strolled to celtic 18yard box and scored 2 and ordered celtic to o score only one thereby allowing ORLANDO PIRATES to have a win on a DIAMOND Platter'..... MR EDITOR,THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE HEADLINE SO YOU'LL BE HAPPIER!PIRATES IS A GREAT TEAM ANY DAY...THAT PIRATES LOST TO CHIEFS YESTERDAY DOESN'T MEAN PIRATES CAN'T HAMMER THEM BADLY TOMORROW.PLS BE OBJECTIVE IN YOUR VIEWS.ITS SO EVIDENT YOU ARE A CHIEFS FAN BUT SORRY...YOUR REPORTS AND WISHES CAN'T WIN FOR THEM....DEAL WITH IT....UP THE BUCS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
