Orlando Pirates ride over Chippa United to get back-to-back wins

Orlando Pirates ride over Chippa United to get back-to-back wins

Orlando Pirates recorded back-to-back wins in a week after putting Chippa United to the sword with an emphatic 3-1 victory in a DStv Premiership encounter at a cool Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Gqeberha on Saturday afternoon.

Pirates had a slow start to the campaign, drawing two games and losing one, but they turned their campaign around last weekend, winning against Swallows FC at home. They built on from that winning momentum in the Windy City.

The two teams came in this game on the back of contrasting results: Pirates registered their first win of the season against Swallows FC at home on Saturday, while Chippa suffered their first defeat away to new kids on the block Royal AM.

As a result of that win, Pirates’ caretaker coaches Fadlu Davids made only one change to last weekend’s team, with Tshegofatso Mabasa coming on for Deon Hotto. Mabasa came off the bench to score the winner against the Dube Birds.
