Their inconsistent reserve was in action earlier today in a 12h30 pm kick-off against Stellensbosch Football Club at Athlone Stadium, Cape Town.

The sea robbers started the second the same way they did in the first half, creating few chances but failed on multiple occasions to break the deadlock as they did in the first half.

Until the 50th-minute when Pirates took the lead through Phelelani Ndaba, which proved to be a winner, even after the citizens threw everything at Pirates towards the end of the match.
