A much better second half in the Soweto Derby but Chiefs took their chances, and actually could have had a third goal.  Pirates tried very hard to get back into the match, but could not find a goal and Chiefs killed the game off on the stroke of full time.

Pirates 0 - 2 Chiefs (Tshabalala 51', Mthembu 92')

06 Dec 17:26


Pirates 0 - 2 Chiefs

06 Dec 17:25
90' +2 - It's all over now.  Chiefs break quickly down the right, the Pirates defence was stretched and an inch perfect cross found Mthembu who had managed to get ahead of his marker to slot home past Mhlongo.
06 Dec 17:23
06 Dec 17:22
90' +2  - A corner to Pirates comes to nothing as Erasmus fouls Khuzwayo.
06 Dec 17:20
90' - There will be four minutes of added time for Pirates to find an equaliser.  Pirates 0 - 1 Chiefs.
06 Dec 17:20
89' - Chiefs substitution. Nkhatha is replaced by Mthembu
06 Dec 17:18
88' - It's all Pirates at the moment as Khuzwayo gets down at the feet of Erasmus to save.
06 Dec 17:17
84' - Chiefs substitution. Parker is replaced by Gould.
06 Dec 17:16
84' - The corner is initially cleared by Chiefs but only comes out to Myeni but his shot is blasted over the bar.
06 Dec 17:14
84' - Pirates have a corner, will they take this chance.
06 Dec 17:12
80' - Pirates substitution. Klate replaced by Matlaba.
06 Dec 17:11
80' - Myeni does well on the right for Pirates, sends in a cross right across the face of goal, but no Pirates players were on hand to steer home.   Pirates trying hard for an equaliser!  Still Pirates 0 - 1 Chiefs. 
06 Dec 17:06
76' - Chiefs substitution.  Masango is replaced by Lebese.
06 Dec 17:05
75' - Chiefs carve out another chance down the other end, but again a poor final ball is letting them down.
06 Dec 17:05
73' - A Pirates corner causes some confusion as Khuzwayo comes for it but can't get to it.  It is headed well over by a Pirates player.
06 Dec 17:03
Will Letsholonyane's miss come to haunt Chiefs.  It's still Pirates 0 - 1 Chiefs.
06 Dec 17:02
71' - Pirates searching for an equaliser, they have a shot blocked and then Erasmus shoots wide of the right hand upright.
06 Dec 17:00
68' - Pirates substitutions.  Ntshumayelo is replaced by Makola. Majoro is replaced by Erasmus. Pirates still will not play the two of them up front together.
06 Dec 16:58
66' - Another chances goes a begging, a lightning quick counter attack find Tshabalala in space on the right, he cuts inside and has a shot across the face of goal.  He had support surging into the box, he could have looked to supply a pass to them as his angle was to tight to shoot.
06 Dec 16:56

64' - Chiefs should have a second, Parker again the provider from the left but Letsholonyane half scuffed shot comes off the corner frame of the goal.  He really should have buried that!  Still Pirates 0 - 1 Chiefs. 

06 Dec 16:50
58' - First chance of the half to Pirates as Myeni shot is deflected just over the bar for a corner. Khuzwayo is fouled from the resulting corner.
06 Dec 16:48
56' -  Nkhatha is cautioned for Chiefs.
06 Dec 16:44
54' - Another chance falls to Chiefs as Letsholonyane tries a spectacular bicycle kick but it goes well over.   All Chiefs at the moment!
06 Dec 16:43
53' - Pirates 0 - 1 Chiefs in the Soweto Derby.
06 Dec 16:43
50' - An all their pressure this half has paid off and it is Tshabalala who sweeps home from 8 metres after a pin point cross from the right by Parker.
06 Dec 16:41
06 Dec 16:38
48' - All Chiefs so far this second half but still 0-0 at the FNB stadium.
06 Dec 16:38
47' - Chiefs start off the second half much like the first, a great period of possession, but the final ball from Tshabalala is again to long and Mhlongo collects.
06 Dec 16:35

06 Dec 16:21


A very cagey affair.  There have been one or two chances, most notably to Nkhatha who headed over for Chiefs and Ntshumayelo who hit the side netting for Pirates.

Pirates 0 - 0 Chiefs

06 Dec 16:19
45' +1 - Nothing from the corner as Chiefs are penalised for a foul on Mhlongo.
06 Dec 16:18
45' - A major scare for Pirates as a cross comes in from the right, it is cleared backwards towards the goal by a Pirate defender and just wide of the upright for a corner.
06 Dec 16:16
43' - Tshabalala with another long range effort.  It was still climbing as it sailed 10 metres over the bar.
06 Dec 16:14
41' - Still 0-0 in the Soweto Derby, very cagey game so far, as it often is.
06 Dec 16:11
37' - Great chance for Pirates as Ntshumayelo drops his shoulder, beats his man and lets fly... into the side netting.
06 Dec 16:08
35' - Still 0-0 in the Soweto Derby!
06 Dec 16:06
33'  - A good period for Chiefs, they are doing well down the right flank.  Tshabalala tries a through ball but it is to strong for Parker and Mhlongo who is ever alert, collects.
06 Dec 16:04
31' - This time it is Chiefs with some nice passing to work some space.  The ball is pulled back to Letsholonyane but he has left his shooting boots at home and he shoots well over.
06 Dec 16:03
30' - Some intricate passing on the right hand side works Klate into some space but the pass towards him is again to strong.
06 Dec 16:01
27' - Throw in to Chiefs in an attacking position, the ball comes to Tshabalala but he blasts well over.
06 Dec 15:59
24' - Majoro and Mathoho both down injured after they clashed.
