HT Analysis: Pirates V Maritzburg

Absa Premiership

Half Time: Orlando Pirates 0-0 Maritzburg United

Date: 15 April 2014

Venue: Orlando Stadium

It was the same old story for Orlando Pirates as they squandered chance after chance in front of goal in the opening half of their Absa Premiership match against Maritzburg United at Orlando stadium on Tuesday night as the two teams enter the break locked at 0-0.

It was one way traffic in the opening 45 minutes as the Buccaneers controlled the possession stakes and thus dominated proceedings.

Still, for all their superiority Pirates could not breach the United defence, although it was not from lack of trying.

The Buccaneers started very positively and had numerous efforts on goal, but with very little effect.

Their best chance of the half came in the 15th minute when Happy Jele met a corner-kick, but saw his ten-yard header cleared off the line by Ruben Cloete.

As the half progressed, though, the United defence tightened up and kept Pirates at bay for the most part.

The away side offered very little in attack and failed to have a single shot on goal in comparison to Pirates’ six attempts.

You can follow the second half action live in the match centre.
