Pirates Drop Vital Points After Draw With SuperSport

Absa Premiership Report: SuperSport United v Orlando Pirates, 11 April 2018

Absa Premiership

Result: SuperSport United 0-0 Orlando Pirates

Date: 11 April 2018

Venue: Mbombela Stadium

Orlando Pirates dropped two vital points in the Absa Premiership title race after playing to a 0-0 draw against SuperSport United at the Mbombela Stadium on Wednesday night.

The first real scoring opportunity fell to SuperSport in the 14th minute when Aubrey Mobida met a right-wing cross from Teboho Mokoena, but his 12-yard header shaved the wrong side of the crossbar.

Pirates came close to opening the scoring nine minutes later when a low left-wing cross from Innocent Maela was met by Justin Shonga, but he toe-poked the ball inches wide from eight-yards out.

In the 34th minute, Mpho Makola tried his luck from long range but saw his thunderous 30-yard effort strike the crossbar.

Two minutes later, Makola should have scored when Luvuyo Memela broke into the box from the left and squared for the former, but his six-yard effort came back off the post.

Neither side could find a goal before the break and entered the tunnel at half-time locked at 0-0.

Six minutes into the second half, Memela came close to scoring when he let fly with a 20-yard thunderbolt, but his effort was superbly tipped over the target by the SuperSport keeper.

The next significant effort on goal only came in the 70th minute when Thuso Phala fired a rather timid shot goalwards from 30-yards, which Siyabonga Mponthsane spilled, but luckily for the Pirates goalkeeper, it fell on the outside of the post.

Pirates controlled the flow of play after that and pushed forward in the final twenty minutes, but the Buccaneers could not find a winner as the game ended all-square, leaving the Soweto giants three points adrift of leaders Mamelodi Sundowns, but having played a game more.

QUALITY FĂ’OTBALL WILL NOT PUT TROPHIES INSIDE OUR CABINET, BUT SCORING GOALS WILL, IN POLITICS THEY SAY STRUGGLE SONGS WON'T PUT FOOD ON THE TABLE, BUT TENDERS WILL!!!!

@dellah, very correct Member, Micho and Rhulani 's hard work will be undermined if some of the current squad members are allowed to leave and new players are signed.

@Ntsimbi08, I wish Micho all the best in his project of building a formidable side. My view is that if Khoza keeps the current players and technical team for a period of three years, rotte will cause headache to a lot of PSL Coaches.

@Khaya Shozi, we are well Member, I am little bit surprised to hear from some fellow bloggers saying we wanted Suppersport Utd to do us favour, we have been consistent in saying we will get the job done ourselves than rely on other teams to help us.

Playing well doesn't change the fact that Rats are trophyless Akere? We all know that Supersport always signs and certify all Rats Trophyless documents, so evn this year supersport did what they've been doing in recently years regardless their league position
