***FULL TIME AT ORLANDO STADIUM***

Eric Tinkler has his first win in this stint as Pirates caretaker coach as his team convincingly beat Ajax Cape Town 4 - 0.

13 Dec 22:07
89' - What a goal!  Take a bow Kermit Erasmus!  The Ajax defence was pushing up right to the half way line and a through ball by Sangweni put Erasmus away,  Jenniker manages to get back to try and defend but Erasmus casually wrong foots him and slots the ball home just inside the right hand upright!  Very cool finish from the Pirates striker.
13 Dec 22:04
GOAL - ORLANDO PIRATES!
13 Dec 22:04
89' - Cale has a chance for Ajax, but he shoots across the face of goal.
13 Dec 22:03
87' - Majoro with a brilliant through ball to Erasmus, Jaakkola forces his to go wide, and a heavy touch means the ball goes out.  Great play by the two strikers however, who says they are too similar and cannot play together.
13 Dec 21:58
82' - Ajax substitution.  Scott is replaced by Ngalande.
13 Dec 21:57

13 Dec 21:46
71'  - Free kick to Ajax, Cale swings it in from the left, Morris is unmarked but he heads over as well.  Two great chances for Ajax in the last couple of minutes.
13 Dec 21:45
69' - Corner kick to Ajax, Lebusa has a free header, but he can't keep it down.
13 Dec 21:42
65' - A corner from Pirates brings the third.  The Ajax defence don't clear out out swinging corner which come to the feet of Sangweni who sweeps the ball home!  
13 Dec 21:40
GOAL - ORLANDO PIRATES!
13 Dec 21:37
60'  - This time Majoro can claim the goal, there will be no disputing this one!  Pirates work some space on the right, Myeni picks out Eramus but Jaakkola parries his shot but unfortunately for him straight to Majoro who taps home into an unguarded net.
13 Dec 21:36
GOAL - ORLANDO PIRATES!
13 Dec 21:35
58' - Pirates have broken the deadlock.  A corner from the right hand side is not dealt with by the Ajax defence and comes through to Majoro who scruffy shot hits the post and comes off the back Jaakkola diving across his goal.  Majoro will claim it but that will be an own goal for the unfortunately Jaakkola.
13 Dec 21:32
GOAL - ORLANDO PIRATES!
13 Dec 21:31

13 Dec 21:24
49' - A Myeni cross finds Sarr unmarked in the middle but the cross was slightly behind him and he can only head wide.
13 Dec 21:23
48' - Free kick to Pirates as Makola is brought down.  The Ajax wall does it job and blocks the free kick.  
13 Dec 21:22
46' - Ajax with the first attacking move of the second half,  Paulse chases a through ball which is to strong and Mhlongo leaves his line to quickly collect.
13 Dec 21:20

***SECOND HALF UNDERWAY***

Can Pirates find a goal for all their dominance?

13 Dec 21:10

***PIRATES DOMINATE THE FIRST HALF***

Pirates have dominated this first half, but they have nothing to show for it.  Jaakkola has done well in goal for Ajax.

33' - Jele and Morris clash heads and Morris has stayed down.  He seems to be fine, but taking some time to get to his feet. 
13 Dec 20:49
