Cape Town - Tendai Ndoro scored the only goal of the match as Orlando Pirates beat Chippa United 1-0 in an Absa Premiership game at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Tuesday

The win saw the Buccaneers move to position five on the league log, while the Chilli Boys remain tenth on the table.

The home side threatened first through Andile Mbenyane's long range effort which missed the target 14 minutes into the league encounter.

But Tendai Ndoro made sure he fired Pirates into the lead with an easy tap in making it 1-0 to Pirates eight minutes later with Luvuyo Memela providing an assist.

The Chill Boys were denied by Pirates goalkeeper Jackson Mabokgwane in the 35th minute - parrying away Thembinkosi Lorch's header and the first-half ended with Bucs leading 1-0.

In the second-half, the home continued to enjoy more possession in the early stages, but they were finding it difficult to penetrate the Buccaneers defence.

In the 70th minute, Chippa goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi made a great save to deny Pirates attacking midfielder Mpho Makola from close range.

At the other end, Mabokgwane denied Katlego Mashego of Chippa in stoppage time as Pirates contained the home side until the referee blew the final whistle.

Pirates won 1-0 on the night and they recorded their first ever away win over Chippa in the league.
