Kaizer Chiefs redeem themselves with a 2-1 win over Orlando Pirates in the Soweto Derby

Posted: 17 September 2011 Time: 16:59

Kaizer Chiefs finally got one over Orlando Pirates, with a 2-1 win at FNB Stadium on Saturday.

Bernard Parker scored his first League goal for Chiefs, with Siphiwe Tshabalala scoring the second.

Happy Jele hit home to get one back for Bucs in injury time, but it was too little to late, and Chiefs go top of the Premiership log.

Chiefs bossed the first half, though the first real sign of their dominance came in the 24th minute when Parker almost got onto the end of a great through-ball from Lucky Baloyi, but Moeneeb Josephs got off his line quickly.

Three minutes later Parker sent a fantastic shot direct from a free-kick right into the top corner. Josephs got a hand to the ball, but it wasn’t enough to keep it out.

Vladimir Vermezovic’s team continued to dictate proceedings and in injury time at the end of the first half they took advantage of some slack play from Andile Jali.

Jali attempted to dribble out of his own box, but was dispossessed by Josta Dladla, who teed up Tshabalala – the Bafana Bafana midfielder buried the ball in the back of the net to make it 2-0.

Pirates replaced injured striker Ndumiso Mabena with holding midfielder Clifford Ngobeni at the start of the second half, and the presence of an extra man in the middle of the park allowed Julio Leal’s side to boss the remainder of the game.

However, Bucs lacked a cutting edge up front and the service for striker Bongani Ndulula left much to be desired.

In fact, Chiefs perhaps had the best scoring chances of the second half, particularly Lehlohonolo Majoro, who sliced a close range effort in the 62nd minute.

Pirates continued to plug away against the outstanding Chiefs defence were rewarded right at the death when Jele scored with a volley after meeting Dikgang Mabalane’s free-kick at the near post.

Mabhakaniya let's all congratulate the Yellow Zebra!!
They beat us fair and square whether Qubule has denied us three penalties or not,they have beaten us and they deserved it.it has to come.
Its a wake up call to our players and technical team.I don't want to point fingers,I'm not a bad losser but there are some players you can't throw in certain games and really I still don't believe Mabena should play ahead of say Rudolph Bester but let's wait and see what change our coach will bring in the next game!
Congrats Makhosi!

Why did referee allow the goal to stand while he blew for something before the freekick was kicked if parker missed it what was going to heppen. I promise you it was going to be a retake.

This is a same referee against Sundowns the first leg. This is a same referee against marizburg is this a coincidence, i dont know maybe it is a coincidence. But maybe the hawkes must just investigate the guy. Football 101 was mastered by Orlando Pirates.
