Orlando Pirates beat Black Leopards in the Telkom Knockout Cup

Posted: 22 October 2011 Time: 19:50

Goals from Benni McCarthy and Rudolf Bester were enough to take Orlando Pirates into the next round of the Telkom Knockout while Moses Kwena’s strike in optional time was merely a consolation.

Bucs dominated most of the match and looked as if they would score more goals only to see a very good Andile Jali chance go wide as frustrations began to grow.

Bester did really well to slip a through ball into the path of Jali, but the midfielder curled his right-footed attempt past Omony’s upright.

McCarthy’s 24th minute opener at Orlando Stadium was a volley from close range. A clever Daine Klate free kick resulted in a loose ball falling to McCarthy.

But in scoring the goal, McCarthy annoyed his hamstring injury and was taken off and replaced by Bongani Ndulula.

Benson Mhlongo made a return to the field having been out injured since October 2009, after a horrific knee injury against AmaZulu, and had a hand in his team’s second goal.

Just a minute onto the field, Mhlongo linked with Bester outside the danger area and passed to Ndulula who got in a very good cross for Bester to tap into an empty net at the far post.

Leopards did have a few chances of their own. Mongezi Bobe's deep corner beat Moeneeb Josephs, but Rodney Ramagalela could not keep his header down from an excellent position at the far post.

Bobe also struck a long range attempt, which swerved and gave Josephs some trouble, highlighting his never say die attitude and value to the Leopards team.

Even though Kwena’s header in the dying seconds of the game from a corner made the score more respectable, Leopards never really looked like troubling the home side.

He..he..he aykhona niyizidomu webantu beating Leopards is not something that deserve a celebration from these donkeys. Prematurely celebrations are too toxic. Chiefs will defend the trophy hambani niyonya nina.

""""""""""""""""""""""
Heita Thibos, my answer is All visiting teams who were booted out will learn a thing or two from the BIGGEST TEAM in Africa. Chiefs will show them how is done.

Watch the attendance from the stands tmrw, it will be 98% of Chiefs and 2% of the home team. Thanks for your concern, but we are not. We will be qualify for the next round, may I add Comfortably.
