07 Mar 17:23

FULL TIME AT THE FNB STADIUM

The Soweto derby has ended 0 - 0!  Chances for both sides throughout the match with two shots hitting the woodwork as well as penalty appeals from both sides. 

07 Mar 17:22
90' +3 - Chiefs with what might be the final attack of the match, the ball will just not drop for Parker and he can't get a shot away.
07 Mar 17:21
90'+ 2 - Free kick to Pirates after Sarr is fouled. Nothing comes from it.
07 Mar 17:20
90'- There will be 3 minutes of added time.  Still 0 - 0.
07 Mar 17:19
89' - Parker finds space on the right, shoots... into the side netting!

07 Mar 17:13
84' - Orlando Pirates substitution. Bacela replaces Makola.
07 Mar 17:13
82' - Chiefs banging at the door of the Pirates defence, Gaxa has a great chance after an excellent ball finds him in space but Mhlongo is alive to the danger, rushes out and Gaxa can only shoot straight at him.
07 Mar 17:11
81' - Two great chances for Chiefs.  Parker with a brilliant ball over the top for Mthembu but his first touch is awful and Mhlongo clears.  Then Letsholonyane slides the ball across the face of goal from the left, but there are no Chiefs players to latch onto it.
07 Mar 17:07
79'- Tshabalala bursts into the area, but Sangweni saves Pirates with an excellent tackle. Chiefs pushing for a winner here, they are dominating possession.
07 Mar 17:07
78' - Still 0 - 0 in the Soweto derby. Will we have a late winner?
07 Mar 17:05

07 Mar 16:57
67' - Masango, in space on the right,  charges at the Pirates defence but solid defence by stops him in his tracks. We are still 0 - 0 in the Soweto derby. 
07 Mar 16:54
64' - Now Pirates hit the bar after Myeni shot is deflected off a Chiefs defender and beats Khune only to rattle the underside of the bar. Chiefs clear.
07 Mar 16:51
63' - Nothing comes from the free kick for Chiefs.
07 Mar 16:50
62' - Orlando Pirates substitution.  Kermit Erasmus replace Majoro (tactical).
07 Mar 16:50
61' - Another free kick to Chiefs after Lebese is brought down.
07 Mar 16:45
56' - Poor free kick by Lebese is easily cleared, the ball falls to Tshabalala who lefts fly with a left footed thunderbolt which rattles the crossbar!  What an effort!  Not sure if Mhlongo got a touch on that.  He did! That goes down as a fantastic save!
07 Mar 16:44
55' - Free kick to Chief after Tshabalala is fouled. This is 30 metres out and right in front of the goal. 
07 Mar 16:42

07 Mar 16:38
48' - The Pirates defence are forced into a hurried clearance again after Chiefs attack down the left. What did Baxter say to them at half time?
07 Mar 16:37
47' - Letsholonyane with a long range shot, well saved by Mhlongo. Great start to the second half by Chiefs.
07 Mar 16:36
46'- First attack of the match and only some great defence from Pirates stops Parker from pulling the trigger. Lebese and Parker combined well on the edge of the area but Matlaba was alert and took the ball from Parker's feet.
07 Mar 16:34

SECOND HALF UNDERWAY

Pirates get us underway in the second half, they are attacking from right to left. Although there was some nice football played in the first half, there were not many chances. Will that change in the second half.

07 Mar 16:31
