Giovanni Solinas: "Very painful loss and very disappointing to lose the derby. But this is football. The guys were fighting until the last second but we couldn't do it.

"Football is about details and today the details went for Pirates."

24 Nov 17:13

Milutin Sredojevic: "Credit to the players they applied themselves and for the work they put in."We were looking to be patient in the build-up as a way of defending.

A good match against a very good opponent. I think we deserve a place in the finals.

24 Nov 17:12

Man of the Match: Xola Mlambo

"The guys put in a great push to seal the win, it's not easy playing against Chiefs twice in two week.

I play with great midfielders such as Musa and kutumela who is a great 10, and we dominated if I could say so."

  • 78'

    Pule brings down Mphahlele on Chiefs' right flank. That's his third foul since his yellow card and the Chiefs players think he should be sent off. Will Bucs take him off to protect him from a red card now?

  • 76'

    Pule takes on Mphahlele and draws a corner for his side. However, Shonga's deliver is easily cleared.

  • 72'

    Chiefs win a corner which Maluleka delivers, but Munetsi heads the ball clear for a second corner.

  • 58'

    Chiefs cause problems from the resulting set play as Mabokgwane looks unconvincing when trying to punch. Booysen smashes a shot wide of goal from the follow-up.

    Mbekile brings down Walusimbi. That is the umpteenth foul of the game as both sides look to disrupt the rhythm of their opponents.

  • 40'

    Kutumela is down receiving treatment after Ngezana caught him late. The referee didn't see the challenge.

  • 39'

    With just over five minutes before half-time, we have a fascinating tactical battle here.

  • 34'

    Chiefs appeal for a penalty as Manyama goes down in the box, but the referee waves away the calls.

  • 18'

  • 16'

    Some lovely passing by Pirates sees Pule receive from Mlambo on the right. He cuts inside and fires a shot, but Khune saves after an initial fumble.

  • 13'

    GOAL!!! Orlando Pirates have taken the lead!!! Thembinkosi Lorch coverts Vincent Pule's to give Bucs the lead.

    Pule is down receiving treatment after injuring himself in that challenge.
