Tshegofatso Mabasa scored only goal to give Bucs 3 points

A second-half strike from Tshegofatso Mabasa proved to be the difference at Orlando Stadium, where Orlando Pirates ground out a 1-0 victory over fierce rivals Swallows FC on Saturday. 

In what could be described as a grudge match following the hosts’ cup exit at the hands of their fellow Sowetans, three points was paramount on the day. This was after back-to-back draws by the home side in the two opening matches of their DStv Premiership campaign. 

Starting XI: Mpontshane (GK), Jele (c), Hlatshwayo, Mako, Shandu, Mosele, Mabaso, Makhubela (Ndah 85’), Dlamini (Dzvukamanja 59’), Hotto (Mabasa 59’), Pule (Motshwari 85’).
