AmaZulu and Orlando Pirates draw 1-1 in Durban

Posted: 3 April 2013 Time: 21:25

Orlando Pirates missed the chance to make up ground on log leaders Kaizer Chiefs after being held to a 1-1 draw by AmaZulu at Moses Mabhida on Wednesday night.

Collins Mbesuma had given Bucs and early lead, but Goodman Dlamini equalised in the second half.

It was a missed opportunity for the Buccaneers after Chiefs could only draw with Maritzburg United, but it all started well enough when Mbesuma buried a pass from Oupa Manyisa, who had been played in by Daine Klate.

Senzo Meyiwa made his first save on 20 minutes, saving Nkanyiso Cele’s low drive down to his right.

Goodman Dlamini was forced to clear off the line from Klate after Tapuwa Kapini dropped a corner kick, while at the other end Andile Jali beat two defenders but then saw his shot hit the side-netting.

Tamsanqa Teyise hit a free-kick just wide of the post just before the break, before Khethokwakhe Masuku missed two chances at the start of the second half.

AmaZulu should have drawn level when Goodman Dlamini found himself one-on-one with Meyiwa, but the keeper came out on top.

However, the striker was not to be denied, slotting home on the hour-mark after Thokozani Mshengu’s shot came back off the woodwork.

Njabulo Manqana missed a great chance on the counter, before Kapini made a world-class save to deny Mbesuma, who had been set up by the impressive Jali.

Ayanda Dlamini almost won the match late on, but he just failed to connect with Joseph Malongoane’s cross as the game ended in a draw.

Ha ha ha ha I like it for Makakania, the gap is still 7 points. What are you Pierats faithfools saying. Are you still going to win the league. Is 6 games now, and guess what, no Golden Arrows to donate points. He he he eat that Makakania. " There is nothing special about Pierats" said Ndulula.

Referees continue to cost us the league. Wrong offside call & our player was in gud position to score.
===========================================

Voetsek mpya ke wena. Stop relying on referees to win games bloody sonofabitch. You had 90 minutes to win the game and you blame an offside call. Sies ! marginal offside calls are part of the game and blame one decision for not winning a match is the height of stupidity. Go throw yourself in a sewerage where all of you Pirates fans belong.

IN case you have 4gotten the gap remains a healthy 7 points.
