Pirates sail past Arrows

Daine Klate and Happy Jele score for Orlando Pirates

Posted: 19 December 2012 Time: 09:20 pm

Orlando Pirates closed the gap on log leaders Kaizer Chiefs to just one point following a comfortable 2-0 over Golden Arrows on Wednesday evening.

A stunner from Daine Klate in the opened the scoring, while a 53rd-minute header by Happy Jele secured the three points.

After a slow start to the match, Pirates were handed a 25th-minute free-kick and it was Klate who took control of the set-piece and curled the balls past a stranded Pavels Steinbos.

Shortly afterwards Ritus Krjauklis did well to clear away a Sifiso Myeni ball in the box, before Senzo Meyiwa confirmed why he received a recent call-up to the Bafana Bafana squad; pulling off an impressive one-handed save off a dangerous cross into the box.

Dillon Sheppard replaced Luyolo Mapolisa at the start of the second period, but it was Pirates who got the next goals when Jele was left unmarked at the back=post to head home Klate’s corner-kick.

Four minutes later in could have been 3-0 when Steinbos and Oupa Manyisa went one-on-one, but it was the shot-stopper who came out on top.

Meyiwa pulled off another great save to ensure Pirates collected all three points and finish the year just one point behind their arch-rivals.

AAARG NOOO MAN! MATCH FIXING AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL

The goalkeeper (Rooibos), how do you give away such goals?
Manqoba Mnqithi, deliberately kept Khuboni on the bench to give away this match
Victor Gomez, why was Andile Jali not red carded for the tackle on Dillon Shepard?

This is serious though, Golden Arrows must be relegated so that Pirates cannot be guaranteed 6 points even before the league has started.

I saw many Kaizer Chiefs fans at Moses Mabhida tonight, what are these baboons ranting about? I did say many KC fans from inland are on holiday in coastal cities, so since we are a soccer loving fans, they went to go watch football and wind time.

Shut up wena! Eintlik ungubani and udume ngani? Are you not a Sundununu supporter? Hide yourself fast because trying to locate your team's fans is like looking for a needle in a haystack; NOWHERE to be found. Address once your team learns to exceed more than 200 supporters for your home games.

Until then, Up The Bucs...
