PSL Match Report: Golden Arrows 1-3 Orlando Pirates

Posted: 10 May 2014 Time: 15:56

Orlando Pirates came from a goal behind to beat Golden Arrows 3-1 in their last League match of the season at Moses Mabhida Stadium.

Bongi Ntuli gave Bucs an early scare as he capitalised on Rooi Mahamutsa’s defensive mistake to give Arrows the lead in the fifth minute of the game.
But goals from Kermit Erasmus, Sifiso Myeni and Mpho Makola were enough to secure Bucs a top-four finish.
Pirates dominated possession but their final pass let them down once again.
Frustrations started to show as Oupa Manyisa had already tried three attempts from range inside the opening 20 minutes but neither could find target or trouble Bartman.
Bucs’ first effort on target came in the 26th minute when Erasmus forced Bartman to dive low to his left.

Erasmus managed to pull a goal back in the 30th minute after he teamed up with Daine Klate for Bucs’ equaliser.
Klate was once again in the thick of things as his fierce effort forced Bartman to a fantastic save for a corner. The resultant corner saw Mahamutsa rise high, only to send his header over the bar.
In the second half, Bucs showed some menace in their build-up play and attack and it wasn’t long before they took the lead.
A nice interchange of passes saw Myeni net Bucs’ second after receiving a well weighed pass from Mpho Makola in the 50th minute.
Makola could have double the lead in the 73rd minute but his poor decision let him down.
He did, however, make amends in the 75th minute as he collected a pass from Erasmus to calmly slot home Bucs’ third and cap off his man-of-the-match performance with a goal in the 75th minute.
Senzo Meyiwa denied Ntuli his second of the game with a heroic penalty save in the 78th minute.

With meyiwa, jele (c),rooi, matlaba, manyisa, makola and kermit we have a great foundation to build on, 4 of 11 places still up for grabs next season. players need to raise performance or we should get, 2 or 3 max, quality additions who can perform consistently as required. Sox, sangweni(if he stays), klate, majoro, ntshumayelo, myeni, phungwayo, Bacela and Pelembe hope they all do better next season and avoid serious injuries. #once.always
