Chiefs beat Bucs to win Derby

Posted: 15 March 2014 Time: 05:32 pm

Kaizer Chiefs beat Orlando Pirates 1-0 in the Soweto Derby at Soccer City thanks to a goal by Willard Katsande in the second half on Saturday afternoon.

Pirates created the first goal scoring chance in the fourth minute when Oupa Manyisa’s cross from the right by-line found the head of Mpho Makola, but his effort to the near post was well-saved by young goalkeeper Reyaad Pieterse.

On 11 minutes the Buccaneers created another opportunity when overlapping left-back Ayanda Gcaba sprung the offside trap and got a shot away from a tight angle, but Pieterse again came up with a good save.

Pirates were the more fluent and forceful team in the first-half, pushing Chiefs onto the back foot and limiting them to mere scraps in attack.

Bucs created another shooting chance for the adventurous Gcaba in the 34th minute, but his left-footed effort went high and wide.

The tense and bruising first-half ended with the sides still locked at 0-0, and the respective defences went into the break knowing that they had enjoyed the better of the battle.

Chiefs ‘keeper Pieterse would have been particularly pleased with the way he handles his nerves on Derby debut.

Bucs made a change at the start of the second half, throwing Lennox Bacela on in place of Helder Pelembe. However, it was Chiefs who created the next scoring chance and their best of the match to that point, with Reneilwe Letsholonyane shooting over the bar from just inside the penalty area in the 51st minute.

Ten minutes later the Amakhosi broke the deadlock with a first official goal for the club from Willard Katsande, who was able to head home almost on the goal line from a corner kick by Siphiwe Tshabalala that drifted over the reach of Senzo Meyiwa.

Pirates should have pulled level with just under ten minutes to play when Sifiso Myeni picked out Rooi Mahamutsa from a free kick, but the defender put his header wide of the target with only Pieterse to beat.

Nyauza was booked for kicking a ball in retaliation, Bacela was only talked to for committing about 3 fouls, the referee was bias,he even booked Shabba unfairly, yes it was not a penalty but also not a deliberate dive.

to be fair to majoro guys, he wasn't happy at chiefs, and I think he chose pirates just to spite us, don't think he loves the team, and I dnt know why people boo him if they say they didn't want him anymore. I guess they wudve preferred to see him at ssp or celtic, but the choice was his hey.. we cant choose for him.. let him be, we cant be jealous of a loser now can we?

You damn right, your HONOUR/WORSHIP, Supersport must stop showing such inferior footballing standard to the world, especially when the Glamour Boys wallop your miserable pie rats. So when Chiefs beat the rodents the standard of football in Mzansi is low? Sometimes it can be very hard to be a Khosi supporter; you have to tolerate all types of nonsense - when you are not nagged about the lucky star, some coconut (who thinks he is superior to things South African that other darkies believe in) has to express his irritation about not being satisfied by the standard of soccer in the derby? You are what them brudders in the States would call a "house negro", an African American who has adopted the outlook of his employers towards blacks and who has this queer idea that deep down somewhere he is not black and that all things black are inferior. You must be a DA supporter, queer.

“I was happy with the acceptance from Pirates supporters even though Chiefs fans where not happy,” said Majoro.

“I have to set one thing straight to them. They can complain all they like but they don’t know what transpired. There are the ones who always judge soccer players but football is a short career. If they are going to complain I think they must focus on their own problems more than focussing on what I do as a player,” added the ‘Major’

“They will always be behind because I am the one who is in charge of my career and my life so they can’t dictate, complain or say whatever they want about me,” continued Majoro

malombo  Cool down my brother and savor your win cos I have nothing against it but the standard of football displayed especially by my team. Otherwise for your info I am a kasi boy thru and thru and more African than you may imagine. "Ke ngwana mmaphaka monare" hence the Buffalo. Ha e lale thari e ntsho. I won't even start to mention my contribution in the liberation of our people during those times hence I refrained from engaging with Tzozo for I only do that face to face for I am not a coward but a fierce stalward of our liberation. Politics aside for this is not a correct forum

SR4 malombo  There was no need to explain yourself to these political palookas. I sense you are a sensible man compared to your interrogators. Do yourself a favor by sharing your intelligent footballing mind which some of us enjoy following and ignore these palookas

Thanks for the clarification, SR4, but the idea was never to politicise the discussion but it is struck me as kind of odd that there are still people who measure Mzantsi by overseas standards, especially in soccer where we were in the wilderness (exiled, excluded, banned, you name it, because of the then ruling party's apartheid system) for longer than most of us can remember and thus couldn't keep pace with developments in the rest of the soccer world. I almost took you for one Lindiwe Mazibuko. And for your information, NK4SRS (whatever insanity that stands for), I am no political palooka;it's just that I am aware of what goes on around me and have the appropriate mental facilities to detect and enquire about matters that do not seem credible. I leave politics to your likes.

Don't flatter the ungrateful rat by saying that we have made peace with his departure; his departure was never an issue with 99.9% of the Khosi nation, it was more like good riddance. Chiefs don't need sporadic players in their line-up. As you rughtfully say, his presence was causing a lot of instability in the team because of his moodiness, which rubbed off negatively on his colleagues. Rather, it was more like minus one problem.
