Rampant Pirates Too Strong For Wits

Absa Premiership Report: Orlando Pirates v Bidvest Wits 25 April 2018

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 25, 2018 09:25 PM
Absa Premiership
 
Result: Orlando Pirates 4-0 Bidvest Wits
 
Date: 25 April 2018
 
Venue: Orlando Stadium
 
Orlando Pirates kept their Absa Premiership title bid alive after thumping Bidvest Wits 4-0 at the Orlando Stadium.
 
 
Milutin Sredojevic made a couple changes from the AmaZulu win last time out as Augustine Mulenga and Thabo Qalinge replaced Thembinkosi Lorch and Mpho Makola.
 
After a quiet opening, Pirates broke the deadlock after 13 minutes when Sifiso Hlanti deflected Luvuyo Memela's shot into his own net.
 
The Buccaneers went close to doubling their lead after 21 minutes but goalkeeper Kyle Peters did well to deny Justin Shonga.
 
The lead was eventually doubled after 36 minutes through Mulenga, who latched onto a poor back-pass before calmly slotting past Peters.
 
Moments later, Pirates were awarded a penalty when Mulenga was brought down in the box. Shonga stepped up and fired home the spot-kick as the Bucs took a three-goal lead into the break.
 
The Buccaneers showed no signs of slowing down as they bagged a fourth goal in the 58th minute as Mulenga completed his brace with a composed finish in the box.
 
Gavin Hunt responded by introducing Daylon Claasen for Granwald Scott, while Marshall Munetsi replaced Musa Nyatama for Pirates in the 72nd minute.
 
The Clever Boys were then awarded a penalty in the 84 minute when Majoro was brought down in the box. The former Pirates strike stepped up but saw his effort saved by Siyabonga Mpontshane.
 
That proved to be the final chance of the half as Pirates ran out big winners on the night in an empty stadium.
 
The Buccaneers are now four points behind Mamelodi Sundowns, who drew 2-2 with Maritzburg United.
 
 
Here's how they lined up:
 
Pirates: 40. Mpontshane, Jele, 4. Nyauza (Munetsi 73'), 24. Thopola, 22, Maela (Gabuza 83'), 6. Shitolo, 14. Nyatama, 37. Mlambo, 11. Memela, 42. Mulenga, 27. Shonga (Maphanga 63').
 
Subs: 30. Sandilands, 39. Maphanga, 16. Munetsi, 45. Mobara, 15. Qalinge, 12. Morrison, 31. Gabuza.
 
Wits: 36. Peters, 2. Allie (Frosler 46'), 6. Scott (Claasen 70'), 8. Monare, 9. Rodgers, 12. Pule, 13. Hlanti, 14. Mkhwanazi, 25. Gyimah, 26. Ritchie, 39. Mosiatlhaga (Majoro 46').
 
Subs: 1. Keet, 7. Klate, 11. Pelembe, 14. Claasen 41. Motshwari, 33. Frosler, 45. Majoro.

@chiefs is useless I don't think we will be awarded those points. We are compromised by the fact that our Chairman happens to lead the PSL, a clear conflict of interest.

@201071 The Bucs bus is running. Watch the coming ten seasons, the rebuilding stage is getting momentum. From 6×6 to contending for the league. Leswi I mihlolo n'wana. Nkuku wuta ringa
