Match report: Orlando Pirates beat University of Pretoria

Posted: 7 October 2012 Time: 17:32

Orlando Pirates ended University of Pretoria's unbeaten League run on Sunday.

The Buccaneers were stunned in the opening minutes by Tuks, but they recovered like true defending champions to score three unanswered goals and bag three valuable points.

The game started off at a slow pace with both teams testing each other in the opening minutes, before Bongani Zungu got the better of the advancing Moeneeb Josephs after receiving a pass from Siyabonga Shoyisa.

The goal sparked more life into Pirates and they started to press forward in search of the equaliser.

Collins Mbesuma and Onyekachi Okwonkwo tried their luck for the equaliser, and after a series of attacks on Tuks' defence, Pirates were rewarded when Mbesuma found the back of the net after a defence splitting pass by Sifiso Myeni.

Immediately after restart, Oupa Manyisa had a chance to hand Bucs the lead, but was denied by the diving clearance of Siyabonga Shoyisa with his goalkeeper stranded.

In the 57th minute Mame Niang watched in disbelief when his point blank header ricocheted off the upright, with Josephs and his defence well-beaten.

Pirates powered forward with an attack of their own and Ramahlwe Mphahlele was judged to have brought down Manyisa in the box.

Jali, who had been yellow carded moments before, sent Washington Arubi the wrong way from the penalty spot as the Buccaneers took the lead for the first time in the game.

Mbesuma then registered his second of the game, beating Arubi after another defence splitting pass from man of the match Myeni.

Kak football is the football you're imagining we should play as opposed to this dominating football we play now... Kak football is the football you were playing at Primary school & non of your friends wanted to pick you to play alongside them ko Tim-Tim...

What do you call 88% pass completion, 72% ball possession, world-class goals, players & supporters (The Ghost)...

You're deluded...

The Dream Team plays an international-level style football played by most big teams at club & international level... not this endless running around like a Zebra on the Serengeti... as you can see they are already running out of paraffin...

The Dream Tean is a SuperBrand & we embody SuperDiski hence we are always shown on Supersport HD...
@ CJB Ramses III and Anti-Zebra

Tell these dipwad fools Champs!!!!! Anti-Zebra 'The Zebra Slaughterer' and CJB Ramses III 'The True Champ like the Ramses III Egyptian Pharaoh.' Let's Roast these Zebras feed their 'Smiley' heads to Edwin Gyimah of SSU as he looks like iZim-zim (Canibal). lol

@Anonymous...your command of the Queen's language leaves much to be desired,you shouldn't be criticising others if your above sentence is anything to go by....Jali is proudly(Xhosa) South African and he knows that he is not by any means obligated to speak English just like the proudly Venda Eric Mulomowandau,do yourself a favour and start blogging in your own language,it is much easier,believe me,now try it!

Mbesuma lost his scoring form when he lost partneship with David Radebe.
It looks like Sfiso Myeni is new creative partner to Mbesuma. Watchout this poisonous combination in future games.

Pirates should keep their shape and not make major amendments to the winning recipe.
