PSL Match report: Moroka Swallows beat Orlando Pirates

Posted: 26 February 2013 Time: 21:28

Orlando Pirates have now conceded seven goals in two matches, as Moroka Swallows fought back from two goals down to take the points this evening.

Sifiso Myeni’s early goal and an Andile Jali penalty were not enough for Bucs, after Katlego Mashego, Lefa Tsutsulupa and Lerato Chabangu rallied the Birds with a goal each.

Pirates missed the chance to go top of the Premiership table and remain second on 40 points, two fewer than Kaizer Chiefs.

The defending League champions had a dream start to the match and took the lead in the first minute, after a quick counter-attack resulted in Takesure Chinyama sending a through-ball to Myeni, who shot low past Greg Etafia.

Three minutes later Happy Jele swung in a brilliant cross from the right to the back post where Daine Klate hit a left-footed volley into the ground and forced a good save from Etafia.

Klate was again denied by the keeper in the 25th minute when his free-kick from 20 metres was tipped over the bar.

Pirates were handed the chance to double their lead when Roger da Costa was adjudged to have handled the ball inside the box.

Jali stepped up and sent Etafia the wrong way with a low, right-footed shot.

As half-time loomed a former Pirates player made brought Swallows back into the game.

Dikgang Mabalane outran the Pirates defence on the right and sent in a low cross to an unmarked Mashego, who slotted home from 12 metres.

Next, Mabalane hit a powerful shot from range which beat Senzo Meyiwa and then rebounded off the post for Swallows skipper Tsutsulupa to head home from close range.

Mashego then turned provider when he floated a free-kick into the danger area and Chabangu flicked a header beyond Meyiwa to seal a remarkable comeback.

Hehehe the penalty was harsh...

We have lost our intensity... we have lost our championship mentality... the players continue to coach themselves... this is a coaching problem.... I repeat, I have long since ran out of strikes for RDS...
Roger's approach is antecedental & now he's displaying histrionics acting for us on the bench.... let's remember RDS once said he doesn't feel the pressure of the OPFC bench... I can only conclude that's why his approach is so lax...

The prosecutions ARRESTS it's case... let's hear the defense's closing argument for RDS....

3 unanswered goals, 6 points down the drain...?!? siya shayiwe bafethu...
Seconded Bhakhaniya, truth need to be told. Our problem is with the technical team. If one of the reasons for firing Krol was because they had to come back from 1-0 down in the final against Black Leopards, then what is the Chairman have to say about this humiliation we are getting. Khoza must sort this mass before it's too late.

Very quick to post rubbish, so according to kickoff the scoreline ended 0-0. Talking about desperation to tell us about the whipping boys of the last round of the season. Some of us knew the results before the match. Is this an article kickoff? nxa

The ref tried to give them a very soft penalty as usual but the birds came back to molest them average FET mice..

Average team, average coach, average supporters that think they know too much about football. No depth, one player team, if Sangweni is not there they finished
