JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – HOST Kaizer Chiefs and arch rivals Orlando Pirates drew 1-1 in an action packed Soweto derby of the Absa premiership strongly contested at FNB Stadium on Saturday.

Amakhosi found their opener through rare striker Joseph Molangoane in the 16th minutes following some beautiful passes involving Edmore Chirambadare, Siphiwe Tshabalala and Bernard Parker.

However, the Buccaneers responded in the 33rd minute when left back Tsepo Masilela beat his own goalkepper Itumeleng Khune from relentless pressure piled by Orlando Pirates’ Thembinkosi Lorch.

The almost full stadium enjoyed every minute of the game as action swung from one end to the other.

Khune, Mphahlele, Mathoho, Gordinho, Masilela, Molangoane, Maluleka (Baloyi 64’), Katsande, Chirambadare (Twala 56’), Tshabalala, Parker (Paez 86’)
