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.

Now this is bull shit, Pirates win their fans somehow they drag Chiefs' name to their comments, Pirates fans still wonder why even Kick off always have something to say about Chiefs, I mean not so long ago their interviewd 1 madala who kick off forced to mention Chiefs inspite of their recent form or lack of there of in the league. Lastly congratulations to both Ajax and Pirates for closing the gap kwiSundowns. Fans ake nisho kanti kuthatha kuthini kwiPirates if idlala neChiefs?

I simply dont care what Pirates fan are saying about our lost last nite and how they dream about winning the leage, the fact is we have won every single cup including Leage more than rates.6 mabone is the biggest score in the history of Cabbage fc and Kraal pie city fc and it will take them life to pay or re-write it. Today they are making noise as if they have won the the leage already.these creators(rats) are very annoying with their comments and I blame clowns fc (Sunflower) for they are their daily bread which is why they are dreaming about winning the leage because their daily bread is on top of the table(currently). To all chiefs supporters and player the time for celebration is over we need to start collecting more point in order to stand a chance of winning the leage. To me beating Rats is the same as beating any other team since all other 15 teams in psl are still yet to come close to what we have achieved .

I personally think Krol is not a good coach under pressure but he certainly can deliver against useless clubs like boSundowns, celtics, vasco...so Pirates must keep this guy after he is the 1 who won that 1 cup after 10 years. Bucs fans must also appreciates when Krol performs, namuhla he put on Malokase and he gave u guys a win. As a South African I am getting worried if boKhune no Josephs badlwa amagoli apathetic njengalaweweekend.

There is no much difference between beating Rats or any other team it just feels the same .The only time we get excited is when we beat the likes of Manchester united etc because of what they have achieved which is almost at the same level as ours.

10 year without a major trophy.
A pathetic coach is under fire.

@ tokzin surely iChiefs iyazimisela uma idlala nePirates, so does that iPirates ayizimiseli if izodlala neChiefs or it means Kaizer Chiefs best is way better than Pirate's, I mean judging from labo 3-1, 3-0. and as for reserving players I think thats just a stupid question mfo even iPirates reserved their players prior to that game. So Tokzin tshela mina ke kwenzakalani if nidlala neKaizer? Given the quality you guys claim you have in ur squad.

To be honest with you there's nothing special nge Chiefs. We know ukuthi nizodlala nizeninqmuke izinyawo and next game niyodliwa cause your main focus is Pirates. For you there's no other team than Pirates. You dream Pirates, eat Pirates and sleep Pirates. We inspire you and I know you wont admit it but deep down niyazi.
