Orlando Pirates fell on the wrong end of an enthralling Absa Premiership encounter, as they lost 4-3 to Bidvest Wits at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday evening.
The two Gauteng outfits were in Durban for this particular clash, which provided non-stop fireworks throughout the 90 minutes.
It was a nightmare start for the Buccaneers, who conceded a free-kick at the edge of the box inside the first minute, with Musa Nyatama colliding with Terence Dzvukamanja.
The foul would prove costly as Deon Hotto bamboozled Joris Delle from the set piece. The Frenchman was left motionless as the winger bagged his third for the season.
four goals on one night were not enough, and perhaps the best strike came of the day came from Cole Alexander, who wrestled the lead back Wits way with a volley from outside the box, making it 3-2.
The hosts would stretch their lead through Phathutshedzo Nange, who had just come in, only for the Buccaneers to pull one back immediately, with Mhango getting his name on the scoresheet.
Starting XI: Delle (GK), Jele (C), Maela, Nyauza, Ndlovu (55′ Monyane), Nyatama, Mlambo (55′ Mhango), Makaringe (77′ Dlamini), Lorch, Mulenga, Mabasa
