A late goal from Ndumiso Mabena handed Orlando Pirates a win over Jomo Cosmos yesterday, and in the process Bucs leapfrogged Ezenkosi to the top of the Reserve League table.

Tlou Segolela put Pirates in the lead in the 20th minute of the first half with a clinical effort from inside Cosmos area, before Takesure Chinyama misses a golden chance after being set up by winger Khethowakhe Masuku.

Cosmos levelled the scores in the second half, before Roger de Sa, who was on the bench for the match, brought on Benni McCarthy, Onyekachi Okonkwo and Mabena, who turned the game around.

Mabena hit home the winner after some great work from Segolela on the right flank.

Its only Brilliant Khuzwayo and Nicholas Mynhardt ..that are in the 1st team.
While other teams are using their benchwarmers , we use the U/19 boys,
The U/19 boys are standing in position 4, imagine if we start fielding abo Abia Nale,Ngcobo and nabo Kaizer Jrn

Mmhh no wonder Pirates are sitting on top, they are showing signs of cowardise. Ever since this reserve league began we have never used players from the first team (except for Khuzwayo who played his first game yesterday).

Again we have never had Stuart Baxter sitting on the bench but instead we let Mapike and Khuse do the job.

The moment one of your trusted members of the starting 11 gets injured or suspended you would be bemoaning the lack of quality and match fitness for the likes of Ngcobo, Nale etc

Ndumiso Mabena is competing with the U/19 boys from development ,
I have no doubt if the editor can dig deeper , you'll find the 17yr old Tsediso Letsholanyane has scored more goals than Ndumisa Mabena and Bongangani Ndulula in the reserve league .

Ndoda Under19 has its own league, this is the reserve league... Don't blame other teams if the zebras don't know how to capitalize on it. Same as umtwana akunika icondom wena uyifake ekhanda, sebenzinsa aba Ngcobo ku Reserve league bayeke ukurusa!!!!

That just shows that Pirates ambitions are different from chiefs ambitions. Pirates wants to win the league, Nedbank and Champions league whilst chiefs seems to be grooming those under 19's if your word is anything to go by, so don't expect Pirates to do what chiefs is doing because their ambitions are different

The top down approach at Pirates is amazing, In this Picture Jomo Cosmos represent Platinum stars.

This is exactly how the PSL is going to unfold, come May.

I hope every Bucs fan has prepared his White jersey, we are going with white this year, Red did it last season and Black the season before last.

In RDS we have a young coach with an ambition to achieve big in SA n Africa.
