Bucs miss a host of chances but get the three points

Posted: 14 September 2011 Time: 21:20

Orlando Pirates were wasteful in front of goal but still managed to secure a 1-0 Absa Premiership victory over Santos at the Orlando Stadium on Wednesday night.

A single goal from striker Ndumiso Mabena just before halftime was enough to give The Buccaneers all three points.

Santos made a bright start to the match and Pirates goalkeeper Moeneeb Josephs had to be at his absolute best to keep out an effort from Vuyisile Wana as he turned the striker’s shot around the post.

Bongani Ndulula should have done better with a short free-kick awarded inside the Santos box as Zairon van Beulen’s backpass was inexplicably picked up by Lee Langeveldt in the home goal. The Pirates striker blasted his effort over the bat though.

The game looked to be drifting towards halftime before Pirates grabbed the lead as Mabena rose highest to head home Daine Klate’s corner.

Mabena might have made it 2-0 soon after the break but his shot misses the target with the keeper beaten.

Langeveldt produced an excellent save to deny substitute Rudolf Bester with his first touch of the game after coming on, while at the other end, Santos’ on-loan midfielder from Kaizer Chiefs, Siyabulela Songwiqi, forced a fine save again from Josephs.

Pirates continued to create chances but failed to find the back of the net. In the end, one goal was enough and Bucs take home the points.

The government is to probe Pirates because they contribute to unemployment of coaches in SA,Qwede Mantashe says it is highly likely that unemployment of coaches will rise this season starting on Saturday with Nespray coach and others as well to follow.When asked to comment Khoza said Pirates has no choice as Mbalula sports minister tipped Pitares and the Boks to moer hulle! Shapa Pirates shapa!!

U r right the masters of Football 101 r playing second fiddle to chiefs players in bafana. But remember we recently lost to a team ranked almost a hundred places behind us. I hate his excuse of not fielding manyisa " we cant hv short players when playing against africans". Stupid coach really stupid coach

South Korea 2002 world cup went all the way to the semi-finals of the world cup with the tallest player in their team the height of oupa manyisa. Nigeria, serbia and slovakia came with the tallest team in the 2010 world cup and what was their achievement.

Really Pitso cant take bafana to the AFCON. I wish the most successful national coach could be reinstated the pirates legend Shakes Mashaba. Football 101 was mastered by Orlando Pirates.
