Absa Premiership Chippa United Orlando Pirates

Posted: 27 September 2014 Time: 14:45

Chippa United beat Orlando Pirates 1-0 in the Absa Premiership on Saturday, with Bafana Bafana newcomer David Zulu netting early on at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.

Pirates started brightly, as Ayanda Gcaba headed a right-wing cross from Mpho Makola against the crossbar as early as the second minute.

Soon after, Thamsanqa Sangweni drilled a free-kick narrowly wide from 30 yards out at the other end.

The Chilli Boys then took the lead in the seventh minute, as Zulu dispossessed Makola before going on a weaving run and beating Senzo Meyiwa with a clinical left-footed shot on the angle. It was the forward's fourth goal of the season.

The Buccaneers threatened twice before the half-hour mark, as Kermit Erasmus thumped a shot just over before marauding fullback Thabo Matlaba drew a save from Mbongeni Mzimela with a useful strike on target.

Makola also came close leading up to the recess, as he steered a free-kick just wide of the upright.

The second stanza failed to match expectations, as both sides struggled to make inroads in the final third.

Bucs, who lost the MTN8 Final last weekend, pressed in the latter stages, as substitute Lehlohonolo Majoro, on for Makola, turned sharply in the box before firing inches wide in the 75th minute.

Chippa nearly added a second at the death, but Meyiwa made a superb stop to foil a swift assault. Nevertheless, the hosts went on to claim the maximum spoils in Port Elizabeth.

NantsiNGOZI i agree with U khosi national team is something else but i believe he can start and then we judge him on what he delivers on the day. I think the coach just wanted to see him play in a game like today

Jay Bee  makes me wonder,,whether or not the absence of AJ15 plays part in this

Jeza2014 NantsiNGOZI  International football requires mental strength, without it you wont survive, this is what most of our players lack,,either way he's capable, he better than most forwards we have, I hope he will do justice in national team colours

@Bongz # Bucs  VV should have placed matlaba kuRB seeing that Jele is off,, Phungwayo kuLB,, Nyauza always seems lost in that position, he's better kuCB

I am not watching this game but it seems everyone in this good pirates lineup is not doing well

Qalinge has been impressive

Why put Jele on the bench in the 1st place?

posted: 2014-09-27 13:31:35

The so called Best left winger isn't in the game,, infact he's the weakest link,, Qalinge So far So good,, Slowly but surely he's getting there
