Bucs Net Late To Snatch A Point Against Baroka

Absa Premiership 
 
Result: Orlando Pirates 1-1 Baroka FC
 
Date: 26 April 2017
 
Venue: Orlando Stadium
 
Issa Sarr struck in second-half stoppage time to earn Orlando Pirates a point, as they drew 1-1 with Baroka FC on Wednesday evening.
 
 
Baroka signaled their intent from the onset and went close on two occasions in the opening five minutes, as Matlakala headed wide, before Kunene struck the crossbar with a cross.
 
Jose Garcia went close to handing the visitors the lead in the 11th minute but Siyabonga Mpontshane produced a fine save to keep out the midfielder's free-kick.
 
Pirates carved out their first opening in the 28th minute when Thabo Rakhale pulled the ball back for Tendai Ndoro, whose effort was superbly blocked by Shaku.
 
Both sides were sloppy whenever possession, which led to a scrappy encounter for the rest of the first half, while they were both restricted to shots from distance.
 
Thabo Rakhale had a lot of joy down the right flank against Punch Masenamela, but his final delivery let him down on a few occasions.
 
Kjell Jonevret opted for a double change at the start of the second half, as Thabo Qalinge and Thamsanqa Gabuza replaced Ndoro and Mpho Makola.
 
The Buccaneers enjoyed most of the possession in the second half and were a lot more tidier with the ball, although they struggled to carve out chances.
 
Gabuza should have opened the scoring after 64 minutes but the striker failed to beat Oscarine Masuluke from six-yards out.
 
Baroka eventually broke the deadlock in the 77th minute as Mpontshane failed to hold on to a long range effort from Victor Letsoalo that sailed into the back of the net.
 
The Buccaneers pushed for an equaliser in the closing stages and they were rewarded in stoppage time, as Issa Sarr headed home from close range,
 
 
Here's how they lined up:
 
Pirates: 40. Mpontshane, 2. Gcaba, 4. Jele, 8. Matlaba, 21. Phungwayo, 18. Sarr, 6. Shitolo, 20. Manyisa, 25. Rakhale, 5. Makola, 7. Ndoro.
 
Baroka: 30. Masuluke, 18. Mapetho, 52. Kgoetyane, 6. Shaku, 46. Madubanya, 44. Garcia, 25. Munetsi, 2. Masenamela, 51. Ogle, 36. Kunene, 49. Matlakala.
