The victory over Chiefs was an impressive one as they ended the many draws supporters had become tired of seeing in the Soweto derby. A goal from Thembinkosi Lorch and a brace from substitute Luvuyo Memela secured a great win for the Buccaneers at FNB Stadium.

They followed that up with a victory away from home against Arrows, thanks to goals from Lorch and Mthokozisi Dube.

Nyatama, who scored in the 2-1 victory over Bloemfontein Celtic at Orlando Stadium last night, has enjoyed a great first season with the Soweto giants, proving to be the ideal box-to-box player in coach Micho’s starting line-up.

He provided assists in both of the side’s victories last month.

Shonga won goal of the month for the spectacular strike from a tight angle against Chippa United on February 25.

Pirates are having a great year so far, losing just once since the start of 2018. They are currently second on the league standings, just a point behind leaders Mamelodi Sundowns, who have a game in hand.

They have a good chance of winning the title.
