DStv Premiership match report: Orlando Pirates goes top after TS Galaxy win

Orlando Pirates made a quick return to the summit of the DStv Premiership table.

As reported by Sports Brief, the Buccaneers defeated TS Galaxy 2-0 courtesy of a goal by Zakhele Lepasa and an own goal by Given Msimango. The Buccaneers opened the scoring in the sixth minute fortuitously, as Lepasa's fierce but wide shot instead deflected off Msimango, bamboozling Galaxy goalkeeper Melusi Buthelezi.

However, there was no misfortune about the second goal that Buthelezi conceded, which was an embarrassing howler from him. He misjudged a ball that Lepasa looped into the box, with the ball bouncing into an empty net.
