Under Which Referee Has Pirates Won The Most Games?
Orlando Pirates' Relationship With Referees
As we continue to look at the refereeing statistics for various Absa Premiership teams, we take a look at the referee that has overseen the most wins while in charge of Orlando Pirates’ games.
The highly experienced Victor Hlungwani, who’s been officiating in the PSL for over a decade was in charge of six games involving the Buccaneers in the 2016/17 season, with three of those games resulting in wins against Golden Arrows, Chippa United and Free State Stars.
Two, against Bidvest Wits and SuperSport United, ended in defeats, while the other, against SuperSport United, ended in a draw and an overall point tally of 10. No other referee oversaw more wins for the Mayfair-based outfit this season, with the next referee in line, Thando Ndzandzeka, overseeing two wins for them this season.
Meanwhile, the Buccaneers lost twice and drew another two against SuperSport United and Bidvest Wits, in the games that were officiated by Victor Gomes, which amounts to the worst record under any official this season.
Coach Kjell Jonevret will be taking these factors into account as the new season approaches and be cautious of the various aspects involved with officiating in his preparations.
