A weird bit of goalkeeping from Walters as he leaves the ball following a cross from Pirates lofted into a dangerous area.
Qalinge gets his boot on the ball and slots the ball home as it hits the post and crosses the line.

Matlaba gets close with his attempt, a shot towards Walters' left. Foster was not too far off from helping it on its way either— Orlando Pirates FC (@orlandopirates) September 19, 2017

Majoro tussles Sandilands for the ball in a threatening area and sees the ball cross the goal line... However, the official waves for a free-kick for Pirates.
Walters is out to block the threat posed by Morrison on the through ball. The Ghanaian applauds the service, as he jumps over the keeper— Orlando Pirates FC (@orlandopirates) September 19, 2017

More fluidity now as Walters palms away a fine save to deny Lorch from close range.

FULL TIME: The referee brings an end to the match which sees Pirates claim all 3 points. It was the 17-year old Foster in the end who set up the winning goal for Qalinge to tap home. Full Time at the FNB Stadium: Orlando Pirates 1-0 Cape Town City.
There will be a minimum of 3 minutes added time.
Cape Town City look visibly distraught having conceded so late, and don't look like they have it in them to fight for an equaliser.
GOAL! Pirates take the lead through Qalinge! Foster crosses into the area from the right, with Qalinge tapping home at the back post! Walters has made a real mess of that one for City as he really should have punched the cross away to safety! Pirates 1-0
Substitution for Pirates: Memela comes on for Lorch in a tactical switch.
Huge chance for Pirates! Foster is played through inside the area on the left side, but can't place his shot on target past the onrushing Walters! Cape Town City are able to clear the ball which didn't generate enough power to go out of play.
Double substitution for Cape Town City: Victor Obinna and Dove come on for Patosi and Majoro in a tactical switch.
Chance for Pirates! Foster is picked out inside the area, finds a yard of space and finesses his low effort past the right post! Huge chance for Pirates to gain the lead there.
Chance for Pirates! Dube finds space down the right and fizzes the ball across the face of goal, but no-one is there to finish it off!
Yellow card: Nyatama (Pirates) is booked for a late challenge in the middle of the park.
Big chance for Cape Town City! The free kick is crossed low into the area, with Majoro hitting his first time on target, but it's blocked by a wall of Pirates defenders!
Koapeng is fouled on the right side of the area, and Cape Town City have a free kick in a good crossing position.
Cape Town City whip a corner into the area, but it's headed clear by Maela. Nyatama tries to lead a counter-attack for Pirates, but his long ball finds its way to the keeper's hands.
Substitution for Pirates: Foster comes on for Morrison in a tactical switch.
Majoro heads wide for City! A cross is delivered in well from the left, but the striker's deflected header goes out for a corner.
Qalinge whips a cross into the City area forcing Walters to punch away to safety!
SECOND HALF: Cape Town City get the match restarted! One change for City at half time as Koapeng replaces Putsche.
HALF TIME: We're goalless at the break. City were denied a goal after the referee disallowed Majoro's opener. Both goalkeepers have come up with great stops. Pirates 0-0 CT City.
There will be two minutes of added time at the end of the half.
Just over five minutes to go at the end of the half.
The game is a bit stop-start at the moment as a number of fouls take place in midfield. There's another break so that a Mkhize can receive treatment.
Sandilands receives a bit of treatment following the disallowed goal, but replays seem to suggest that the referee made the right call as it appeared Majoro kicked the ball out of Sandilands' hands illegally.
GOAL DISALLOWED! City think they've taken the lead but the referee blows for a foul. A ball is fizzed across the face where Majoro bundles the ball over the line but he's kicked Sandilands in the face in the process. Debatable call from the officials.
There's a break in play so a Pirates player can receive treatment. Both sides use the opportunity to take on some tactical advice from the touchline. Play resumes.
Half a chance! Walters is out to block the threat posed by Morrison on who nearly gets on the end of a brilliant through ball. The Ghanaian applauds the service, as he jumps over the goalkeeper.
The game has opened up quite a bit, with both sides having their fair share of chances and both goalkeepers proving their worth.
Chance! Sandilands does well to parry out Lakay's long-range effort for a corner.
Chance! Pirates appeal for a penalty after Morrison's powerful effort is blocked at close quarters. The referee waves play on. No doubt that Pirates are dominating at the moment.
Chance! Nyatama blasts the ball wildly over the goal after a Pirates corner. That could've been the opener. Meanwhile, at the other end a City corner is well plucked out the air by Sandilands.
Chance! Morrison plays a brilliant through ball for Lorch but City goalkeeper Walters does well to send the Pirates man wide, before saving his shot for a corner.
The ball falls kindly for Nodada on the edge of the box but his wayward shot-turned-cross is blocked out.
Patosi takes the resulting free-kick but his shot is a poor one and the ball sails high and wide.
Matlaba is lucky to escape a booking for a poor challenge on Matsi outside the area. The visitors will look to capitalise from the resulting free-kick in a good position.
Both sides are still getting a feel for the ball in the early moments. Jele looked to break down the right but his cross into the middle is blocked for a throw.
KICK OFF: We're underway at the FNB Stadium.
