Cape Town - The second goal by Orlando Pirates in their PSL fixture against Chippa United has been credited by the referee to Kermit Erasmus.

The Sea Robbers handed the Chilli Boys a 4-1 drubbing at the Orlando Stadium on Tuesday, August 18.

Referee Victor Gomes gave the goal to Erasmus as replays shows that Nkosinathi Mthiyane could  fumbled the ball into the back of his own net.

The goal was scored on the 68th minute. 

Ayanda Gcaba opened the scoring powerful header from a corner gave Daylan Hawes no chance, and the Chilli Boys left themselves with a mountain to climb soon after as Ugonna Uzochukwu picked up a second yellow card and subsequent red.

However, Buyani Sali ensured a tense final quarter of the game after capping off a brilliant passing move with an equally silky finish.

However, the night, and the points, would eventually belong to the Buccaneers as Mpho Makola pulled one out the very top drawer to rifle home a 25-yard stunner with just five minutes left on the clock, before repeating the trick deep into added time, this time with a more composed curling finish into the opposite corner.
