Cape Town - Orlando Pirates progressed 4-3 on aggregate after securing a 2-2 draw
with Uganda Revenue Authority in the CAF Confederation Cup on Saturday
Goals from Mpho Makola and Oupa Manyisa secured a share of the spoils
for the Bucs at the Mandela National Stadium in Kampala, clinching the South
African giants’ place in the second qualifying round of the African showpiece.
Pirates started the game with a 2-1 aggregate advantage from the first
leg at Orlando Stadium, but midfielder Yasser Mugerwa struck for the Ugandan
side in the 36th minute, erasing the Buccaneers aggregate lead and putting them
behind on away goals.
Pirates returned from half-time and soon had the scores level on the day
thanks to Mpho Makola, whose goal swung the advantage back their way.
Despite a scare on the hour mark from a close Kyeyune effort, Pirates
took the lead when Manyisa converted a penalty.
Although URA were able to salvage a 2-2 draw on the day thanks to a
stoppage-time strike from Frank Kalanda, the South African side's first-leg
victory eventually saw them through with a 4-3 aggregate win.
