Pirates Secure 2017/18 Soweto Bragging Rights

Orlando Pirates Will Finish Above Kaizer Chiefs This Season

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 25, 2018 09:17 AM

Orlando Pirates have secured their spot as the top team in Soweto this season following Kaizer Chiefs’ defeat at the hands of Golden Arrows last night.

See images from Chiefs' disappointing defeat in Durban in the gallery above

The Amakhosi were beaten 3-1 by Abafana Bes’thende as they succumbed to back-to-back defeats for the first time in a year, and the result means that they can no longer catch their Soweto rivals, and will definitely not be playing in the next edition of the CAF Champions League.

Pirates go into tonight’s clash with Bidvest Wits on 49 points, seven points clear of Chiefs, knowing that a victory will confirm their return to the CCL and second place in the Absa Premiership.

Milutin Sredojevic has overseen the Buccaneers’ impressive resurgence this season, and though they won’t be winning a trophy, the fact that Bucs will finish above the Amakhosi for the first time since 2011/12 will be welcomed by their supporters.  

Meanwhile, Arrows victory over Chiefs was their first since that very same season in 2011, and Clinton Larsen will be delighted to see his side take a big step away from the relegation zone.

@tebogo gm mahlaba Mistakes in that starting line up were Mathoho and Masilela, of which they should fielded Hadebe and Zulu respectively. Lets hope they saw their mistake cos they did substitute Masilela. Next game Castro is out, We need Zuma to start the game along with Ntshangase and Ekstein, And Have Katsande covering for them. They should have Maluleke on the bench though or Buchanan who will come in for Ntshangase since he gets fatigued in the 70th minutes.

I ask my self one question when I see that line up of chiefs against Arrows,Mabadi and zwane are they Mantaly fit to lead this team or what,how can they play Unfit Masilela against the Hard working Lerato lamola.it was clear that Abafana be sethende they we're going to be on the bike when they are in position,knowing well about the shaky defenfece of amakhosi,why can't they play the young boys,they we're suposed to start with zulu,on the left back,Rama,ont the other side with Hadebe and Nguzane,Meyiwa and Maluleke,in the middle of the park,Molangoane on th rihgt flank with Shabba on the left,Play Ntshangase behind Castro,we realy need the changes in this team,Castro's red card is the frastration of the player they don't create the chances for him,he allway play deep while he should be on the box.the players are the but the coaching Staff is dololo.it was the proove of that against Arrows.we realy feel sad,wish they can give me oppotunity to coach chiefs.

It is disappointing that we picked up so late this season. Had we played like we did before Christmas break I am sure we would be way above Sundowns. We drew games we should've easily won. Bragging without winning anything is just senseless and it's out of question.
