Super Sub Seals Victory For Title-Chasing Bucs

Absa Premiership Report: Orlando Pirates v Bloemfontein Celtic 04 April 2018

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 04, 2018 09:30 PM
Absa Premiership
 
Result: Orlando Pirates 2-1 Bloemfontein Celtic
 
Date: 04 April 2018
 
Venue: Orlando Stadium
 
Augustine Mulenga came off the bench to net the winning goal as Orlando Pirates defeated 10-man Bloemfontein Celtic 2-1 at Orlando Stadium.
 
 
Pirates started the encounter as the more aggressive outfit as they pushed for an early goal, but they were lacking the killer pass.
 
However, the Buccaneers eventually broke the deadlock on 16 minutes as Innocent Maela's pin-point cross was headed home by Musa Nyatama.
 
Thembinkosi Lorch looked to double the home side's lead after 25 minutes but his stinging long-range effort was brilliantly palmed away by Celtic shot-stopper Patrick Tignyemb.
 
Neither side could carve out another opening in the remaining stages of the first half, though, as Pirates took a 1-0 lead into the break.
 
Celtic wasted no time in finding an equaliser in the second half as Lorenzo Gordinho pounced on a loose ball to poke home from close range to level matters two minutes into the stanza.
 
Siyabonga Mpontshane came to Pirates' rescue on 62 minutes as he produced a fine save to keep out Ndumiso Mabena from close range.
 
In the 67th minute, Celtic were reduced to 10 men as Gordinho was shown a straight red card for a foul on Gabuza.
 
With 15 minutes remaining, Augustine Mulenga was introduced as Milutin Sredojevic sacrificed defender Happy Jele.
 
Mulenga made the perfect impact as he netted the winning goal three minutes after his arrival with a thumping strike into the top corner.
 
 
Here's how they line up:
 
Pirates: 40. Mpontshane, 4. Jele (Mulenga 75'), 6. Shitolo, 28. Dube (Matlaba 65'), 22. Maela, 14. Nyatama, 37. Mlambo, 33. Munetsi (Gabuza 58'), 11. Memela ,3. Lorch, 27. Shonga.
 
Subs: 16. Mabokgwane, 8. Matlaba, 36. Van Heerden, Mbulu, 5. Makola, 31. Gabuza, 42. Mulenga.
 
Celtic: 30. Tingyemb, 3. Pfumbidazi, 22. Rikhosto, 25. Gordinho, 27. Ndengane, 8. Phalane, 7. Hotto, 33. Motshegwa, 35. Baloyi, 13. Letsoalo (Dlamini 63'), 10. Mabena.
 
Subs: 34. Dambe, 4. Dlamini, 26. Lubisi, 23. Shikweni, 17. Mabaso, 45. Nyundu.

@OnceandAlways you're contradicting yourself you still matlaba should go back to left back position and then you say mala is doing a great job at left back

Our technical team need to bring back Justice Chabalala back into that center of defense. Pair Justice with Shitolo or Nyauza, put Matlaba back into the left back position. Maela is doing great in the left back. I also think that we need to go back to the 4-5-1 formation , this 4-3-3 is not really working out for us. Munetsi can make way for Makola in this formation and this will improve our numbers going forward. The mix of players we have supports the 4-5-1 combination better.
