Kaizer Chiefs Continue Derby Dominance Over Orlando Pirates

A second-half strike from Yusuf Maart proved to be the difference at FNB Stadium, where Kaizer Chiefs ground out a 1-0 victory over fierce rivals Orlando Pirates on Saturday.

The first half failed to produce any real fireworks with both teams squandering possession in the final third of the field.

The home side saw more of the ball in the first half, but their decision making let them down and chances on goal were at a bare minimum.

Kaizer Chiefs, on the other hand, looked a little disjointed and were unable to muster any real attacking moves.

Consequently, neither team could find the back of the net before the half time whistle.

Kaizer Chiefs remained dominant following the break and came close again through a first time attempt at the far post from Keegan Dolly following a ball in.

Orlando Pirates battled to control the visitors as the final exchanged beaconed and Petersen parried Hotto’s powerful header back into play.

The Amakhosi broke the deadlock in the 74th minute after Yusuf Maart spotted Mpontshane off the line and from the half-way line fired into the back of the net.

Makaringe should have found an equalizer on the 80th when drove forward past Chiefs defence but saw his stinging shot from the edge of the box well-saved by Petersen.

Keegan Dolly had a late chance to extend Chiefs lead , but blasted over from the edge of the box after excellent work from Du Preeze.

Pirates had the attacking momentum in the closing phase of the match and Motshwari missed a chance to restore parity in the 88th minute but Chiefs weathered the storm as they carried home maximum points.
