Orlando Pirates got back to winning courses in the DStv Premiership following a 3-0 triumph over Stellenbosch FC on Wednesday evening.
After an enthusiastic beginning, Pirates got the lead on 20 minutes after a knockdown from the extreme left nearby by Deon Hotto delivered a plain Collins Makgaka to execute a short proximity finish.
The Buccaneers multiplied their lead inside brief when Hotto this time burglarized Alan Robertson from ownership to continue and beat goalkeeper Sage Stephens with a low strike.
Stellenbosch searched for a moment reaction and almost thought that it is through an incredible free-kick from Junior Mendieta, however the reflexes from Siyabonga Mpontshane coordinated with the strike.
Privateers entered the second half in mean temperament and expanded their lead through a harsh completion from Hotto following astute mix play by Kwame Peprah and Makgaka.
With more than ten minutes in the restart, the Buccaneers chose to welcome on new faces in Kwanda Mngonyama in the spot of Bandile Shandu.
The Maroons and Whites started to declare strain on the Sea Robbers with balls in and around the space, yet the Soweto goliaths figured out how to clear.
Privateers however were denied a fourth as of now when Olisa Ndah completed a free ball at the close to post from a corner-kick, yet it was precluded following a tactlessness.
Steve Barkers men terrified the Buccaneers late on with a progression of chances from Mendieta that calculated off the woodwork late on, however the Soweto monsters arose successful eventually.
