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.

Against The Mighty Chiefs , Manqoba says, we feel hard done by, the referee was partial. Today the man says, we came here and did what we were told to do, Pirates deserved the points as pointed out by our boss.

Haai, nooo. Sepp Blatter must leave small fishes like Nematandani and focus on red lipped sharks. Phil Setshedi can be of assistance.

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.

Felaposted: 09:34 pm | Report Zebras since you are good with counting how many fans were there in the stadiun tonite and how many were there at FNB las nite?

Does this mean all your fans are from Zimbabwe and Mozambique n they went home?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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...

If you are drunk it is fine i did not buy you whatever you drunk n i am sure wherever you are there is a toilet so go relieve yourself.

El Kampion you can wake your ancestors up and somaar bring the tikoloshis you house at your grannnies...dude. you can never match KC in numbers.

Im saying many KC fans were at Moses mabida tonight. And dont be too daft the colours of seats at Mabidha are designed to look like there are people even though there aren't people.
