Nedbank cup result see Orlando Pirates claim a 1-0 win against GladAfrica championship outfit Uthongathi FC. Orlando Pirates booked their spot in the second round of the tournament with a slender but well deserved win at Orlando Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Gabadinho Mhango got the only goal of the game after a wonderful assit from Deon Hotto setting him up for a comfortable tap in to give his side the lead. Thulani Hlatshwayo return to the team as fans suggested and that has paid off as the Bafana Bafan captain played a curial role in making sure the team does not concede any goal.
Thabang Monare came close to doubling Pirates' lead at the stroke of fulltime with a long range effort which unfortunately hit the post and came out. That was the last action of the game as the Buccaneers secure a narrow victory to book a spot in the last 16 of the competition.
