The Glamour Boys have not had the best of time against their bitter rivals, Orlando Pirates, in recent years, and yesterday’s 3-2 victory saw them beat the Buccaneers in an Absa Premiership game for the first time in almost five years (December 2014).
Ntsikelelo Nyauza’s own goal got the drama going inside the first minute, but it was in the second half when the game really exploded into action when Gabadinho Mhango equalised for the Buccaneers, a brawl between both teams saw Erick Mathoho sent off, and a late penalty from Daniel Cardoso sealed the victory for Ernst Middendorp over Rulani Mokwena.
Chiefs now find themselves 10 points clear on top of the league table – at least until Mamelodi Sundowns’ game today – and have condemned their rivals to an international break sat in the bottom half of the table.
