Chiefs dominance over Pirates:

Amakhosi have beaten Pirates thrice this season, putting an end to their four-year winless streak over their Soweto rivals.

George Maluleka to Sundowns:

After a lengthy leave period from Bucs, following Zinnbauer’s appointment, Pirates confirmed that Mokwena was seconded to Chippa until the end of the season.
