Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns draw 0-0

Posted: 24 September 2011 Time: 22:04

The clash of the weekend between Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns finished 0-0 but was full of controversy, seeing Punch Masenamela sent off.

Masenamela got his second yellow of the match when he tried to boot a high ball away, only to catch Sameehg Doutie in the face, correctly called dangerous play, and he was off for a shower in the 78th minute.

Mabhuti Khenyeza, meanwhile, was lucky not to have been in the showers with his teammate after some horrific over the top tackling; one of which caught Andile Jali just under his knee.

There were only a few genuine goalscoring chances, but between Khenyeza and Ndumiso Mabena, the opportunities were wasted.

In the 21st minute Khenyeza attacked the near post on a corner and saw his glancing header flash over the crossbar.

In the 28th, Bester came close to getting the ball under control with just Wayne Sandilands in front of him, but the Sundowns goalkeeper did well to save.

Then in the 32nd minute, a cross from the right was allowed to bounce inside the Pirates box and while Khenyeza managed to get his head to the ball, the attempt was put over Josephs’ crossbar.

Just two minutes into the second half Lekgwathi was put clear on goal, but his first touch was poor and Sandilands made the save.

Sundowns’ best chance came in the 52nd minute when Mphahlele’s brilliant cross found Khenyeza in a scoring position, but somehow he could not make proper contact with his head.

A few minutes later it was Mabena’s turn to miss a really good chance – he connected his shot well, but Sandilands was in a great position to make a save.

Overall the match failed to live up to expectations and will be remembered more for the rough tackling and tension between players.
