Match report: Orlando Pirates beat Platinum Stars

Posted: 20 February 2013 Time: 21:28

Orlando Pirates have kept the heat on log leaders Kaizer Chiefs with a fortunate 1-0 victory over third-placed Platinum Stars on Wednesday night.

Dikwena were unlucky on the night, bossing possession and hitting the upright twice, but were undone by a Daine Klate goal soon after half-time.

Stars might have been in front half an hour in when Thuso Phala played a perfect pass for Mogakolodi Ngele, and with just Senzo Meyiwa to beat the Botswana star hit the post. Patrick Malokase picked up the loose ball, but his effort was wide.

Pirates were ahead on 53 minutes, however, and it was a well-worked goal. Thandani Ntshumayelo dribbled his way into the penalty area and played a low ball across goal, which was side-footed in from a tight angle at the back post by Klate.

Thabo Matlaba and Vuyo Mere could both have seen red after a nasty scuffle soon afterwards, but got away with yellow cards.

Enocent Mkhabela almost found an equaliser for Stars, his header from a corner had goal written all over it, but Meyiwa had his hands raised already and was able to knock the ball to safety.

Stars had the lion’s share of possession in the closing stages as Pirates sat back and tried to catch them on the break, with Siphelele Mthembu striking the base of the post with a fine turn on the edge of the area in the final seconds of the match.

The heading would have been more apt if it read "muti wins it for Pirates". Chibuku played KAK as usual. Platinum Stars deserved to win the match, not a draw let alone lose it.

Sies Muti FC. Ke dimpya dilo tse.

Matlaba epitomizes the qualifying criteria to play for The Dream Team... it really is tough to score against us... as also witnessed by how Jele exposed the uselessness of Bafana's starting right side attacking player...

The ability to dominate an Orlando Pirates player should be a criteria for selection for Bafana... if a player from The Dream Team can't be dominated by an opponent, there's no way the aforesaid opponent can beat the best players from other nations...

@CJB Ram Ass

Are you still struggling to live with the fact that there are 3 times more Chiefs players in BB than your USELESS Chibuku midgets ? The sooner you accept that reality the better for your health.

Chiefs have dominated BB since time immemorial under different coaches. It will remain like that until the end of time. Deal with it bloody son of a magosha.
