SuperSport thump Pirates

Posted: 21 October 2009 Time: 21:36

Ten-man SuperSport United beat Orlando Pirates 3-0 in an Absa Premiership clash thanks to a Daine Klate brace and a goal by Dario Monteiro at Loftus Stadium on Wednesday night.

SuperSport had Tsietsi Mahoa sent off for a second bookable offence in the first half.

The Buccaneers, despite having the lion’s share of possession throughout the game, could not really create any decent goal scoring opportunities and consequently were punished by SuperSport in their forays forward.

Against the run of play SuperSport found themselves in the lead after some sloppy defending by Pirates. A cross came in from the right and the Buccaneers defence appeared to be sleeping as it found Klate unmarked at the back post. He fired a powerful shot that was deflected past Josephs, 1-0.

Pirates nearly hit back a minute before the break and were unlucky to see a Chenene shot rebound of the post. The Buccaneers winger picked the ball up on the counter-attack and let fly with a volley from just outside the box that beat the keeper but only succeeded in striking the upright.

But not all was lost for Pirates as SuperSport were reduced to ten men just before the half time break after Tsietsi Mahoa was shown his second yellow card for a professional foul.

Glen Salmon was left up front as the sole striker and what a job he did, especially in the 70th minute when he did brilliantly to hold up a long ball from the back before playing Siyabonga Nkosi into some space inside the 18-yard box. Lucky Lekgwathi consequently pulled him down and the referee did not hesitate to point to the penalty spot.

Klate then made it 2-0 for SuperSport with a superb finish from the spot in the 70th minute.

Pirates continued to press forward and were again hit on the counter attack in the 92nd minute. This time some clinical finishing by substitute Dario Monteiro rubbed salt into the wounds of the Sea Robbers, 3-0.

With the win SuperSport moved three points clear of Orlando Pirates and onto the top of the Absa Premiership.

Andile my brother lets fool ourselves as KC supporters like our former MD Mr Kaizer Motaung saying local coaches r not good, infact when was the last time you saw a team playing offside trap besides KC n they come n tell us that this guy VV has Uefa license...to top it all mbooi is not KC material not even PSL, I just wonder what the fuss was all about between us Jomo because this guy is a complete cow...

Actually why must we continue playing offside trap because we can clearly see that its not working for us, I think the coach must answer all this questions....

Dladla has reached his sell by date, he is always a pedestrian in the field he can't even run n as Khosi family we must just forget about winning the league for as long as we play offside trap

Our coach is scared of trying new things & makes his substitutions very late,pirates players commit unforced errors in critical positions & misfiring infront of goal.

I said this a month ago and will say it again. Krol isn't as good as many think. Since he came, Pirates have changed from being an attacking side with purpose and dominance to an a team with lots of possession without purpose and direction. Pirates will be lucky to be in the top 8 as long as Krol is the coach. Don't get me wrong, he is not a bad coach but not suitable for Pirates.

I laughed at Hunt when he acquired Jabu Maluleke. Then he went on to say he only needs 26 players cos he believes that big suqads are overrated.

I thought he was mad. Look at him now

Krol did not want to realise Mongala to play for his national team and yet he is not using him, what is wrong with you krol? i told you that you gonna lose the last three games, you are a pain. Phenyo, you made a big mistake for signing for this club, yu could do have join sundowns, celtics, p stars or this Botswana club capte suntos.

Lebza : 2009-10-22 00:55 [ Report ]

Good one Lebza,but don u think Pirates loss is a consolation to us since they were on our case when were down.Guesse who's going down now?The drama queens of orlando.

These system KC is playing sucks big time,i recently wrote them a strong letter of my unhappiness about the system they play.They are too much predictable and they become clueless in most cases.It's like they are doing us a favor by playing.

Buccaneers nightmare of Chenene has started again! The boy doesnt know how to finish clinically! I hope he watched the likes PATO who did well against the Madrid... 3 clear chances one on one cant even put one behind the net... I dont know why Krol is playing Fanteni over Mthembu and Mashego and my opinion, Mthembu is a much threat to the defenders than Fanteni...Lekgwathi! The senior player who cant handle the pressure, he was suppose to be leading the defence by example, he plays with young guns who are confident and quick thinkers. Moneeb Josephs, you always do well, big ups to you. Teko Modise, your fustrations are killing our team, just dont want to take the team alone, share it with your team... Terminator did well too, but the supply was a bit poor, our game was on the right flank... I thought Krol would sacrifice Lekgwathi ealier in the game to put more pressure...Gumbi, you always play the basics of football exceptionally, I salute you... I hope Krol have learnt a lesson... rest players who you see has fatigue, the likes of teko and Mhlongo. Its a big NO NO to Chenene, you rather play Kamwendo. Chenene has caused us a lot... the last game of the first around against Celtic last season... the final against Ajax... I can name it all, and all were just to pass the net...

Beaten by a TEN MEN TEAM nogal.!!!!!!

I have on numerous occasion watch you guys play,but have you realised that you don win when CHENENE is playing?That guy is full of running and shooting but he never scores and he always ends up crying(just my observation)maybe i'm wrong guys forgive me.Chenene,Gumbi AND A FEW OTHERS at pirates deserve to play or Amazulu or Maritzburg united
