Orlando Pirates beat Vasco da Gama

Posted: 2 February 2011 Time: 22:12

Orlando Pirates completed a 10-game unbeaten run following a 2-0 victory against Vasco da Gama at Orlando Stadium on Wednesday evening.

With the absence of Daine Klate and Dikgang Mabalane in attack, Katlego Mashego and Tlou Segolela proved to be a handful for Vasco’s defence as they kept pursuing Posnet Omony’s posts without any real opposition.

Pirates opened the scoring on 20 minutes when Mashego slotted from Segolela’s assist.

Bucs have managed to keep six clean sheets from their last seven games prior to this clash-thanks to the consistent Moeneeb Josephs, who had a rather quiet first half.

At the other end though, Omony made a mess of a header from Mbuyane in the 35th minute, which saw the Bucs striker score his side’s second goal.

Josephs’ only real test only came in the 40th minute when Bradley August unleashed what could have been a scorcher at the alert Bucs keeper.

Pirates replaced Mashego with Mongalo to partner with Mbuyane in search for more goals, but it never materialized as the game petered out in the second half.

Yho, i've never seen such a boring game my whole, what a dull performance by CHibuku FC last night, wathced the last 20 mins and ended dosing off, if this lucky, directionless team is gonna use the same approach on the 26th then people must brace themselves for yet another GENOCIDE, i see us taking our tally up to nine against them this season.............KHOSI 4 Life!!!!!!

Can they really catch us, I don't think so! We will see, maybe Sundowns because they have the General Navigator! As for makhosikazi they are as good as donkey workers!

So Chimps will keep on comforting and consoling themselves though its painful " keep warming the top spot" I feel for you monkeys we are no 1 we are warmingh our own house, I know Chimps are sad and heartbroken inside. enjoy being the first losers coz there is nothing called no two, for your information being no 2 is being the first loser. I wish things stay like this till the end of game no 30.

U know how Kaizer Chiefs does it, enjoy the top spot 4 now but come end of the season we will b champions. U don't want me 2 remind u what happened in the 03/04 season. Just bcoz u r number one doesn't mean u'v won the league. And this Katlego Mashego's body is so bad looking and hungry, plz mr editor don't show this pic they must use it 4 charity organisations.

Orlando Pirates completed a 10-game unbeaten run

Orlando Pirates came from 2 nil to win 3-2 against Wits.

Motlokoa ngwanesu please put your issues with Kroll aside, we need you athers my brother. The SUPERBRAND ship is sailing high and we need to take same dorection.

Please MABHAKANIYA xolelani uKroll and lets lift this won.

Chiefs is conceiving a goal every game while we dont, this will matter at the end.

Mark Mayambela is CR7 of SA. Pitso must do something, Phenyo stimela Mongala is ticking at the right time. Clifford Essien Ngobeni deserve to be Sibaya successor.
Tlou sox, need for speed, gau train Segolela..what more can i say.

OPERATION ONE GAME AT THE TIME AND 100% BEHIND KROLL

@Snoty
I aggree with you about that moemish referee! I suspect he is an agent for Chiefs & guess what he was officiating in our game against free state stars over the weekend & he kept giving Stars unnecessary fouls to eventually giving most of our players stupid yellow cards.
You see now that we are on top,shocking things are going to happen especially since our rival are behind us.
We are going to see some referees handing games so cheaply to Chimpazees,crazy penalties,offside goals etc and as for the other team they will experience the wrath of this corrupt referees!
Watch this space!

Y'all are raving about the 10 game unbeaten record, i sense a bit of DEja Vu, the same sh!t happened when Papic was still the coach but what happened in the end, there's was nothing but tears in the Bucs camp, i see the same thing happening this season, especially since omakhalanjalo must still go through us on the 26th, they never learn, running their mouths as if the title is already in the bag,do people, really, ever learn mara????? PieCity/Doom Doom/Chibuku/Pistol FC/OKapi eleven, truth is, this team will never smell the league title this year, they might as well celebrate occupying pole position, that is as far as y'all can come close to the Absa Championship!!!!!!!!!!!!!
