PSL match report: Orlando Pirates beat Black Leopards 4-1

Posted: 15 May 2013 Time: 21:26

Black Leopards face either relegation or the play-offs, after being thumped 4-1 by Orlando Pirates on Wednesday night.

Rodney Ramagalela opened the scoring for Leopards but Pirates came back, with Tlou Segolela equalising, a brace from Ndumiso Mabena and the clincher from Oupa Manyisa.

Leopards got off to a flying start, when Ramagalela sent the ball into the roof of the net from outside the box inside four minutes.

But just four minutes later Bucs were back on level terms, when Manyisa played a superb diagonal pass into the box for Segolela to nudge past the onrushing Azwindini Maphaha.

The hosts took the lead in the 19th minute, when Mabena finished with a first time shot at the near post, off a low cross from Mpho Makola.

Maphaha pulled off two great saves to keep scores level, tipping Khetowakhe Masuku’s effort over the crossbar in the 22nd minute, and denying him again six minutes later.

Ramagalela used his strength to get past Ayanda Gcaba in the 31st minute before firing a low shot, but Brighton Mhlongo, who had a great game on debut, dived to his right to keep the ball out.

The Buccaneers increased their lead two minutes later from a free-kick. Manyisa releasing Makola on the left, who crossed the ball for Mabena to finish from the centre of the penalty area.

Lidoda Duvha almost replied just before half-time but Mongezi Bobe was denied by another good save from Mhlongo before Ramagalela blazed the rebound over the crossbar.

The second half was more of the same with the Buccaneers doing most of the attacking.

Rooi Mahamutsa should have added a fourth goal on the hour mark, but after meeting a cross from Masuku he sent his header wide from close range.

Bucs wrapped the game up 20 minutes from time, when Manyisa collected a neat backheel from Mabena before placing the ball past Maphaha from just inside the box to seal a comfortable win.

With one game to play, Leopards stay bottom of the log on 23 points, with Chippa just above them on 25. Ajax Cape Town are third from bottom, on 28 points, and could still be in trouble if they lose their final match and the Chilli Boys win. Lidoda Duvha, however, cannot avoid either last place (automatic relegation) or second last (promotion/relegation play-offs).

So Orlando Pirates have won the lig after all by beating Leopards ? Congratulations are in order .

4-1was the score. Wow ! What a performance Chibuku FC but sorry to shi*t on our cake Chibuku FC dagga smoking fans. Leopards are just a notch more useless that your kak team.

You should be ashamed to celebrate a win against Leopards. This is a team that was hammered 4-0 by a fellow relegation strugglers Amazulu just a week ago.

Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha.......,this just shows how desperate you guys are for something to celebrate. Anyway congratulations for gaining 6 points from that win and defending the lig. Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahh........lenyile

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaahha................it will take more than a 4-1 hammering of a relegated team to erase the big pain that Chibuku FC fans are going thru at the moment.

I know all Chibuku FC fans will not mind losing by the same score to Leopards (anyway they are used to losing by such a margin to small teams - Maluti a case in point) in exchange for Chiefs not winning the lig. Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaahha............lenyile MaPirates you can try to out a brave face but we know you are hurting very bad.

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaahha..............when Chibuku FC finish celebrating their win over Leopards with zols and black label beer they will come up against the hard reality that Chiefs are champions of the lig. REAL CHAMPIONS that is. Not the fake champions who only rely on other teams to give away the lig they already had in the bag in the last game of the season like what Ajax did the other season.

This stupid RDS used only ntsumayelo as a holding mid, bt through out the year he used two holding mid, I bet ma last mandiba, whn we play in CCL he wil go back to tht ####
What are you talking about....De Sa has played Manyisa with Jali in the middle is some games....There is no thing called holiding player these days....Its called Central Midlefield.....So there was two Central MF Ntshumayelo and Ace.....you need to equipyour knowledge around these things....just like Jerry Skhosana on SSP that guy is just there to critisise Pirates

Let me educate you...We normally play three in the middle when we play away games and play two when we play at home

how dumb can you be, we celebrate our team at all times be it playing Mazembe or Leopards.....this had nothing to do with whether they are relegated or not...
Gave our players a run and they enjoyed and entertained us in the process.....

Why are you still concern with Bucs.....is winning the league still not enough to take away your obssesion with Pirates....?

Hehehe.... Can anyone say they didn't enjoy what Masuku was doing...?

South African football 101...!
My KING... I know you enjoyed that...! Hehehe...

Fantastic...! Masuku has secured a 5 year contract from Pirates.

Sure Bhakaniya, Bereza was mesmerizing those Leopards guys, he was on a class of his own,,I like the fact that he was taking them on,,opening them up with his skills,,so his dribbling was not just for fun nje,,it was actually benefitting the team,,he might have given 2 or 3 passes away,,but I like the confidence he played with..Bibo is starting to marshall that midfield as well, Ace showed what he can do when he is on top form though he is not there yet,,so next season we should reclaim what is rightfully ours,,,
