Nedbank Cup Last 16 match report Santos 0-2 Pirates

Posted: 21 March 2014 Time: 17:01

Orlando Pirates became the first side to reach the Nedbank Cup quarter-finals following a 2-0 victory over Santos in Cape Town on Friday night.

Lennox Bacela scored a first-half opener against his former side, with Man of the Match Rooi Mahamutsa heading home after the interval at Athlone Stadium.

Pirates dominated possession early on, but looked vulnerable in the 13th minute when youngster Sachin Dawood headed a free-kick over from the left following a push by Lucky Lekgwathi on Edwin Sitayitayi.

Bucs, however, took the lead from the spot in the 29th minute, as Bacela gently rolled the ball inside the left upright after Dawood felled the lively Tlou Segolela in the area.

The Sea Robbers looked solid at the back for much of the opening stanza, although some indecision nearly allowed Sitayitayi a sight on goal from close range just before the recess.

The second period got off to a slow start, but ignited in the 65th minute when Mahamutsa rose impressively to nod in a Mpho Makola corner.

Vladimir Vermezovic's men controlled the pace up until the closing stages, as the People's Team twice came close to scoring in stoppage time through substitute David Radebe. The ex-Bafana Bafana striker first missed a penalty - incorrectly awarded for a hand-ball against Lekgwathi - before seeing his lob beat Senzo Meyiwa but not the cross bar.

Santos: Touray, Mdaki, Jampies, Nyambi, Skippers, Williams (Lakay 46'), Pantsil, Dawood, Arendse, Mabua (Radebe 58'), Sitayitayi (Allie 77').

Pirates: Meyiwa, Nyauza, Lekgwathi, Mahamutsa, Matlaba, Masuku (Myeni 46'), Manyisa, Ntshumayelo (Masalesa 85'), Segolela, Makola, Bacela (Pelembe 72').

I am currently listening to Mark Fish on radio metro and what I am hearing its really bad, how can Khoza do this to a player, taking all the money 2 million usd without giving Fish his own share, I've got a different perception of Khoza after listening to this.

Fish says when he was transferred to Italy for 2 Million US Dollars, he was supposed to get a 500 thousands usd signing on fee but Khoza came to Italy and took all the money without giving him his 500 Million share, cruelty at its best Khosi.
