Rise and Shine drew 1-1 with the Buccaneers in a PSL match played at the New Peter Mokaba Stadium on Sunday afternoon

Oct 17, 2016 @ 09:23:54

Polokwane City FCwere hoping to stun Orlando Pirates when they hosted them in a league encounter in the city of Polokwane.

Rise and Shine goalkeeper George Chigova was called into action nine minutes into the game when he parried away Bucs star Mpho Makola's cross.

At the other end three minutes later, Pirates keeper Brighton Mhlongo was forced into a low save by Polokwane striker Thobani Mncwango.


Polokwane forward Rodney Ramagalela beat his marker in the right in the 29th minute before playing a powerful low cross which was well saved by Mhlongo.

In the 39th minute, Makola set up his Pirates teammate Thabiso Kutumela who unleashed a thunderous shot which hit the upright with Chigova looking on.

Ramagalela's ambitious attempt from range almost caught Pirates keeper Mhlongo off his line on the stroke of half-time, but the ball went just over the crossbar.

It took only seven minutes in the second-half for Puleng Tlolane to break the deadlock with a thunderous curling shot from the left to make it 1-0 to Polokwane.

Pirates head coach Muhsin Ertugral responded by pulling out Abbubaker Mobara for another Ntsikelelo Nyauza on the hour-mark.

Mhlongo made two wonderful saves to deny Simphiwe Hlongwane and Tlolane in the 64th minute as Polokwane looked to double their lead.

In the 77th minute, Polokwane keeper Chigova produced a good low save stopping Pirates substitute Riyaad Norodien's low cross from the left.

Polokwane midfielder Sipho Jembula looked to catch Bucs shot-stopper Mhlongo from range, but his effort blazed wide with five minutes left on the clock.

However, Tendai Ndoro snatched a late equalizer for Pirates in stoppage time with a great header and the match ended in a 1-1 draw.
