SuperSport defeats Bucs Reserves

SuperSport United defeated Orlando Pirates Reserves 2-0 in their DStv Diski Challenge fixture held at Rand Stadium on Saturday. This loss marked only the second defeat in 2023 for Joseph Makhanya’s team, denying them the opportunity to extend their winning streak beyond five matches. The visitors dominated the contest from the first whistle, placing Bucs Reserves under pressure.

The hosts managed their first shot on target 20 minutes into the game, with midfielder Sonwabo Khumalo’s attempt from range saved by United goalkeeper Samukelo Xulu. However, the breakthrough came two minutes later when Tenda Matodzi headed in after being played in by Shandre Campbell.

Pirates’ efforts to draw level were hampered when they were reduced to ten men in the 79th minute, with Siyabonga Ndlozi being given his marching orders. The visitors took advantage of their numerical advantage almost immediately, with Thabang Mahlangu tapping in from close range to make it 2-0.

Despite the hosts’ efforts to pull one back, they were met with a resilient defensive effort from United, who piled men at the back. The young Buccaneers dropped from the top of the standings, with Matsatsantsa taking up the summit.

Pirates Reserves XI: Dladla, Kabini, Ngiba, Ndlozi, Mokone, Khumalo, Molepo, Mndebele, Khoto (Mdunge 74’), Ndaba (Maphumulo 66’), Ratomo. “
