Mzimela allowed only two goals to hit the back of his net as Mpho Makola and Sifiso Myeni’s goals in the first-half were enough to hand Pirates three points.
According to KickOff, in the second-half Mzimela put in a sterling 45 minutes as he made several saves of which Erasmus had two saved from the Chippa goalkeeper.
"Shame, I felt sorry for Kermit [Erasmus], he got in the right positions,” said Tinkler.
“He had two great opportunities you know it would have been good for him to get on the score-sheet but overall happy to get the result.
“It was always going to be a difficult one, particularly after the Derby."
Erasmus missed out the opportunity to add to his PSL goal tally which stands at eight goals.
