Pirates got the first shot on goal, as an effort from Justin Shonga was easily captured by the Free State Stars Robert Sangare in the sixth minute.

Jackson Mabokgwane was called into action in the 20th minute, but the Pirates keeper was up to the task as he kept out Siphelele Mthembu's header at the far post.

The Buccaneers were presented with an opportunity to take the lead, with a set piece just outside the box. Luvuyo Memela stepped up to take the kick, but his effort sailed just over the bar as the game was still tied at 0-0 after 30 minutes.

Pirates were the dominant team and an effort from Thabo Rakhale brilliantly saved by Sangare as he kept his side in the game.

However, neither team managed a breakthrough as the teams went into the halftime break still tied at 0-0 with little action at Goble Park.

Stars finally broke the deadlock in the 55th minute, when Abbubakar Mobara sent the ball into his own net following some good work by Sinethemba Jantjie.

Five minutes later, the hosts got back on level terms through a Thabiso Kutumela effort, after some great build up play involving Mpho Makola and Justin Shonga.

Milutin Sredojevic introduced the likes of Thamsanqa Gabuza and Riyaad Norodien for the final 20 minutes as they looked for a winning goal.

However, Stars snatched a winning goal in stoppage time, as Mabokgwane failed to collect a cross which saw the ball land at the feet of Jantjie, who duly slotted into an empty net.

In this Pirates, there is still a lot to be done. More players to be bought and more players to be released, if the management is still dreaming about winning the silverware.

@wolly153 That's true man a special Makola this guy is doing poor judgment always even to passes Makola is not doing good he was scoring free kick's but now his miracles is not really working Matlaba sometimes is doing good for us the problem is Khoza he don't want to buy quality players not the thing he like to do like signing one/two players this time he must sign the half of the team including goalkeeper and he must change that poor management
