Last weekend’s Absa Premiership round was one to excite. Orlando Pirates earned their first win in five, while Kaizer Chiefs lost but remain at the summit of the division.
We're happy to note that seven games offered 17 goals and most thankfully no game ended goalless.
Any standout games? One just has to look at what happened in Nelspruit. SuperSport United and Cape Town City delivered a 3-3 thriller. Bradley Grobler continued his scoring form for Matsatsantsa a Pitori, while Sipho Mbule and Thamsanqa Gabuza also hit the net.
The Citizens were inspired by the returning Thabo Nodada. The diminutive midfielder hit a brace, while Kermit Erasmus also added a goal.
In Johannesburg, Pirates earned a 2-1 win over Chippa in a mid-afternoon clash. Thanks to new hot striker Tshegofatso Mabasa’s brace.
The shock result of the weekend came at Chiefs’ expense. Amakhosi wholly dominated Polokwane City, only to lose to a first-half penalty kick.
