Tlou Segolela cancels out Mark Haskins' goal

Posted: 18 September 2010 Time: 17:03

Tlou Segolela scored 10 minutes from time as Orlando Pirates drew 1-1 with Bidvest Wits.

Mark Haskins had give Wits the lead 11 minutes earlier but, on the balance of play, Bucs deserved a share of the spoils.

After a quiet start in which Wits dominated possession but were unable to create any clear scoring chances, the game gradually began to come to life, with Andile Jali firing the first warning shot with an effort that flew just over the crossbar.

Moeneeb Josephs then made two terrific saves to keep his team on level terms – turning away efforts from Wits midfielders David de Oliveira and Sifiso Myeni in the 22nd and 31st minutes respectively.

Yet the save of the game undoubtedly came from Energy Murambadoro, who tipped away a Chiukepo Msowoya shot that looked destined to ripple the back of the net.

The Buccaneers came closest to breaking the deadlock in the first half with a 39th-minute free-kick from Teko Modise that rattled the underside of the crossbar and bounced away to safety.

The early exchanges in the second half were somewhat scrappy, but it was the home team on top, pressuring Bucs in midfield and enjoying plenty of possession, though too often their final ball was poor.

Just before the hour-mark the Clever Boys did finally play a good ball into the box as Michael Morton crossed from the left, and it very nearly resulted in a goal – Geoffrey Sserunkuma got ahead of defender Ruben Cloete, but his header rebounded off the upright.

Ten minutes later Wits were rewarded for their persistence. Right-back Katlego Pule floated in a cross from the flank that Josephs seemed to lose sight of, and Haskins leapt ahead of the keeper to head home into an empty net.

Yet Wits’ lead lasted only until the 80th minute. Pirates broke free down the right through Thulasizwe Mbuyane, who drilled in a flat, hard cross that Murambadoro come off his line to try and intercept but completely missed – substitute Segolela needed only to direct his header on target to score and duly did so.

I really don't blv there are ppl who stillblv Pirates will ever win anything in this life time. Even Swallows are better; at least they won Ned Bank Cup beteaing Amatuks in the final. The best team in the world are judged based on league championship. It take a team with great players to win the league as all teams play equal number of matches!

you must go fire Bobby 1st. If that's yr culture @Naturena to have the management selecting the team for the coach we don't practice that. We say Krol is useless bcos we r the Buccaneers & the management got him all the best players in the PSL but he doesn't know how to utilise them.....He must leave soon!

When Pirates were busy realising good players and signing good players, I said Pirates problem is the coach. And I was right!!! This Krol guy is clueless really. I was not surprised by the result against Wits and I wont be surprised against Chimps. I know that the least Pirates will get against the chimps is a 0 - 0 draw or the Chimps will score 1 goal after missing a dozen chances from the counter, While Pirates will fail to brake a weak Chimps defence. Even Roslee can coach Pirates better. Teko was never off foarm, its Krol who was always off foarm. He continue to play him out of position.

I wonder what more must Krol do to be fired, he's been here for more than two years now but he's still trying to fing a winning combination. If we fail to beat weak teams like Freestate Stars, Wits and Chips who are we going to beat? Enough is enough this idiot must go now.
