That is all folks thank you for choosing Sport24 to catch this Carling Black Label Cup encounter between Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
What a game! A dull first half but a much better second-half from both sides. Orlando Pirates begin their new life under Muhsin Ertugral with a defeat but it is a good set up for the Turkish coach to see wear his side has gone wrong ahead of the PSL campaign.
Brilliantly done by Bernard Parker as the striker struck a bullet of a shot that beat Mhlongo only for his effort to hit the crossbar. However, Eric Mathoho finds the rebound and slots in the back of the net.

It's a wrap. Chiefs overcome rivals Pirates 2-0 in the preseason match to win their second Carling Black Label title.
GOAL!!! (2-0) Macha made the perfect debut when he knocked the final nail into the Pirates coffin as his header found the back of the net after cross into the box from Twala.
The Chiefs onslaught continued, as Twala unleashed a powerful shot from the edge of the box that forced Mhlongo into another save.
Norodien provided some spark for Pirates late in the game and he was in the thick of the action as Ndoro found space but shot wide of the target.
Mathaho cleared the ball off the line after a shot from striker Morrison from close range. Norodien had supplied a tricky ball into the box for his teammates.
Against the run of play, Ndoro forced Khune into a spectacular save following a cross inside the box from Matlaba.
The Buccaneers were unsurprisingly out of sorts in their first match under new coach Muhsin Ertugral. Chiefs continued to dominate in search for a second goal.
Amakhosi were spurred by the opening goal and Masilela was next to get a scoring chance after tracking forward from defence, but his toe-poke brushed the outside of the goal post.
Katsande won the ball for Chiefs from Rakhale and offloaded to Maluleka who in-turn found Twala, whose shot was parried away from danger by Mhlongo.
GOAL!!! Chiefs break the deadlock through Mathoho from close range after the ball rebounded into his path from the crossbar after a shot from Parker.
Rakhale proved an handful for the Chiefs defence as he beat two flying tackles to deliver a cross into the box that flew inches wide of the head of Gabuza.
A flick from the header of Lebese from the center of the pitch released Ekstein, who shot straight at Mhlongo.
Blistering winger Twala made a dashing run into the box and unleashed a shot on the edge of the box that whizzed over the crossbar.
Scores were goalless at half-time in the preseason match between Soweto giants Chiefs and Pirates.
Khune has been a spectator for much of the first-half, but he was tested by a shot from Matlaba from outside the box.
Twala swapped flanks to make an attack from the left and provide Parker, whose tame shot flew wide across the face of goal inside the box.
Pirates are struggling to penetrate the Chiefs defence marshaled by Mathoho. Out of frustration, Makola takes a shot from long range which is easily collected by Khune.
An interchange of passes between Parker and Ekstein gives Chiefs their closest goal scoring opportunity as the Pirates defence scramble to get the ball inside the box, which eventually is collected by goalkeeper Mhlongo.
Chiefs are taking the game to the opposition and it nearly pays off with Jele nearly conceding an own goal from a Moleko cross into the penalty box.
With Pirates pinned back, Rakhale looked to launch a counter-attack, but his run into the Chiefs box did not amount to much.
In the midfield battle, Ekstein put his team under pressure when he lost the ball attempting to make a fancy pass, but the defence sparred his blushes by recovering the ball.
Moleko makes a cross into the box that fell into the path of defender Masilela, who miscued his shot.
Twala took on Pirates right-back Jele on the edge of the box, but Jele was equal to the challenge with a timely tackle.
Ekstein makes a long diagonal pass inside the box that found the head of Moleko, but his attempted assist fell behind the path of Parker and the ball was subsequently cleared by Matlaba.
Twala on the right flank found some space for Chiefs and whipped in a ball into the box that was cleared by the header of Gcaba.
Pirates defender Edwin Gyimah makes a run into the Chiefs midfield but, he is stopped in his tracks by a foul from Chiefs hard-man Willard Katsande.
Matlaba looks to combine with Pirates teammate Rakhale, the ball is dispossessed by Chiefs defender Moleko.
We are underway at the FNB Stadium in front of a near capacity crowd. Both teams will be looking to set the tone in the preseason ahead of the new campaign.
