Johannesburg - Black Aces have climbed to fifth place on the PSL table when they defeated Orlando Pirates 1-0 at Orlando Stadium on Wednesday night.
Thulasizwe Mbuyane came off the bench to score the only goal of the match late in the second half, punishing his former team.
The first chance fell for Aces in the 13th minute when Tendai Ndoro ran onto a great pass from Onyekachi Okonkwo, only to see his shot coming off the post.
Six minutes later it was the hosts who came close to opening the scoring but Mpho Makola’s freekick was punched away by Jackson Mabokgwane.
Ndoro continued to cause problems for the Pirates defence but he was denied by a good save from Fatau Dauda in the 35th minute, before flashing an effort wide two minutes later.
Pirates had an opportunity from a freekick in the 55th minute but Makola was unable to keep his effort down as the ball brushed the top of the crossbar on its way over.
Miguel Timm then drilled a long range effort wide in the 66th minute while Sifiso Myeni saw his piledriver kept out by Mabokgwane eight minutes later.
The winner eventually came in the 80th minute as Mbuyane beat Dauda with a low freekick at the near post after the three-man wall had failed to do its job.
