If the original Soweto derby between our mighty Orlando Pirates and Moroka Swallows was part 2, I would have not believed it for a second because the match played this past Saturday was bizarrely identical to the match played on the 12th of March with Pirate’s black and white kit being the only dead giveaway from the red jersey they wore in the first encounter.
The clash even possessed an indistinguishable plot; Pirates scores an early goal, Pirates dominates the midfield, and Swallows rallies late in the second half and misses a guilt edged opportunity to equalise, the end!
Tlou Segolela gleefully headed in an opportunistic goal after Greg Etafia could not handle a bullet from Thabo Matlaba, who was to many of the faithful Ghost a welcome addition back into the Pirates starting line-up.
Orlando Pirates showed the desire and the professionalism that we wanted to see especially at this stage of the season and Matlaba reminded us why he is our number one left back!
Can the boys go ahead and claim a spot in the top three?
