The Best & Worst Of The Bucs Vs Dikwena
Orlando Pirates have claimed back-to-back league wins in 2015 and are climbing up the table steadily.
Once again Lehlohonolo Majoro came to the party for the Buccaneers as he did against AmaZulu, the striker showed great composure to help gift Pirates the lead.
However, Majoro left me stunned in the second half, after he was sent off for a stamp on Mahlatsi Makudubela. Instead of crumbling under the pressure, our under-fire striker Lennox Bacela rose to the occasion and sealed the win in stoppage time.
Maybe Majoro's suspension could see Bacela get a regular run of games in the side and build on Saturday's cameo against Dikwena.
Bucs Three Best On The Day:
Rooi Mahamutsa - He proved to be solid in the heart of the Pirates defence and didn't really put a foot wrong. He also made one crucial tackle inside the box on Mogakolodi Ngele, as they kept a clean sheet.
Oupa Manyisa - Certainly didn't look bothered or distracted by the transfer saga with Mamelodi Sundowns, as he had a hand in both goals including Majoro's first goal.
Issa Sarr - The Senegales midfielder continues to impress in the Buccaneers midfield, providing solid cover for the back four, where he continued to help out in attack too. He surely has to be one of the first names on the starting line-up.
Three Who Could Do Better:
Happy Jele - The Pirates full back was a bit quiet down the right flank. He did not get forward as much as Eric Tinkler would have liked
Thabo Qalinge - Looked lively down the right flank but his final balls were not impressive.
Thabo Rakhale - Came on to replace Qalinge but hardly showed why he deserves to be in the starting line-up.
