Cape Town City beats Orlando Pirates
Cape Town City defeated Orlando Pirates 2-1 on Saturday evening in a DStv Premiership encounter at the Cape Town Stadium.
The Buccaneers, absolutely poor in front of goals in the league this season, needed nothing but a win to keep their title hopes alive as they fade with every passing day, but flopped again.
The result leaves Pirates stranded in seventh place with 19 points after 15 matchings. Staggeringly and shockingly, they have scored just 10 league goals all season. Even worse, they have failed to score a second-half goal all season, while conceding eight in this period of the game.
Legendary Pirates fan passes away
The South African football fraternity is in mourning following the passing of an icon Orlando Pirates supporter.
Goodenough Sithole passed away in the early hours of Friday morning. Sithole became a household name following a sensational interview over 10 years ago that is now a part of South African cultural folklore.
