Orlando Pirates go top of Prermiership log after win over SuperSport United

Posted: 13 February 2013 Time: 21:33

Orlando Pirates climbed up to the top of the Premiership table when they defeated SuperSport United 1-0 at Orlando Stadium on Wednesday night.

Oupa Manyisa scored for Bucs early on, before Jali had a penalty saved in the second half.

The Buccaneers took the lead in the second minute when Collins Mbesuma’s deft touch allowed Manyisa to run free towards goal before tucking the ball under the onrushing Ronwen Williams.

Franklin Cale tried to find a quick equaliser at the other end two minutes later but he failed to keep his shot down from just outside the penalty area.

Daine Klate should have doubled the lead in the ninth minute when a defensive error saw him receiving the ball unmarked a few yards out, but somehow he volleyed over the crossbar.

The rest of the half saw SuperSport playing long balls towards their front men, Bradley Grobler and Simba Sithole, but they were unable to force Senzo Meyiwa into a save.

Sifiso Myeni could have extended the home side’s lead in the 39th minute after receiving a pass from Klate, but he dragged his shot wide of the far post

Klate had yet another chance to get his name on the scoresheet five minutes into the second half when he met a cross from Happy Jele at the far post, but Williams produced an acrobatic save to block his shot before gathering on second attempt.

Then, in the 53rd minute, Sithole missed a great chance to mark his debut for Matsatsantsa with a goal, as he headed a pin-point cross from Edwin Gyimah over the crossbar.

Seven minutes later Gyimah managed to create some shooting space just outside the penalty area, only for his shot to go narrowly over the bar.

Roger de Sa’s men were then given another chance to double their lead in the 72nd minute when they were awarded a penalty for an infringement on Klate by Davis Nkausu, but Williams produced another good save to deny Jali from the spot.

Both sides had chances to score in the closing stages of the match, but Gyimah's header fizzed just wide of the post in the 86th minute, before substitute Mark Mayambela was denied by another good save from Williams four minutes later.

The Ghost you break my heart... I know that you're primed employees, top notch executives & business owners with limited time... but please guys find time to attend games at The Spiritual Home...

Igusend can fucken die for all I care....!!! Can any of the Chiefs 7 fruity clown players do what's Ace has done...?

If Igusend was to play a player from Pirates either than "The Savior" is Ndumiso Mabena... that's how a pathetic of a coach he is...

Hehehe......... Chose masketela.....
 You know RDS could have handed Gavin a bowl full of our players names written on paper & offered him to pick randomly a player he would like to substitute on the field with a player on the bench.... & RDS would gladly oblige.... that's how much depth we have...

Top of the table....!!

Roger this, Roger that!

Roger is known to give away points in the second of the season. Roger will dismantle Pirates like how he relegated Wits. Kuphi khona zikhonkothi zika Bobby? Izinqa zenu ezisangene!

Wow, what sheer display from Jali and Manyisa aka Bucs' Enfant Terribles! Now you know why Jali also gave Igasende the middle finger after he wasn't called up; the boy's in a sublime league of his own; except POOR penalty! Heh, even Jerry, Williams and vet koek potjiekos Khungwane were going ham in the studio with debates over Mayambela. Hahahaha! That's why we love it! (Zebras were on their gomma gomma couches watching Tiger Boys and have no clue what I'm talking about).

Although we gave Hunt's boys enough room, I'm happy about the 3 points! And no you bottom of the food chain imbeciles from NaZoorena, we're NOT ecstatic about number one! We just want the League and that's it! SuperChimps down, Djabral's next!

Up The Bucs until Yeye stops singing, "Keita you ain't gotta pull my panties off/ just move them to the side"

Andile Jali and Okonkwo were so scared of Gyimah....falling all over the place.

Jali even missed a penalty thinking of Gyimah.

We're number 1 number 1 number 1 hey "singing". Boring Stoke football from SSU couldn't stop. This team I tell you can play against any tactic, we're just too good

Very tactical game! But it was expected. Good win from champions! We had many chances to score but 1 goal was fair, not too impressed with the actual game, was a lil flat but we are BACK ON TOP!!! Position number 1!!! Let's hear from the doubters
