Kaizer Chiefs secured the bragging rights in the Soweto Derby after defeating Orlando Pirates 2-1 at FNB Stadium on Saturday.Despite losing to Stellenbosch FC in midweek, Chiefs made no wholesale changes as Keagan Dolly made his derby debut.
A derby debut for Pirates saw Ghanaian forward Kwame Peprah preferred.The much-anticipated clash started cagey as Phathutshedzo Nange’s low shot and Khama Billiat’s free-kick had Chiefs closest to the lead in the midst of Fortune Makaringe’s cross-cum-shot out wide.
Pirates began to see a lot of the ball and subsequent forward play and brought Peprah, Linda Mntambo and Ntsako Makhubela to the end of all the aforementioned initiatives.
The Buccaneers should’ve been ahead at halftime through Makaringe’s late header in the area following a cross from the right side, but his effort sailed wide of Daniel Akpeyi's goal.
We won but Mr Baxter must leave this guy his philosophy is not good at all we can't always defend and also this thing of overload of middlefield is not working for us.
They say Parker is there for experience. It's the 88th minute you attacking instead of Running to the flag or play a simple pass you chose to play a ball across and pass opponents. What does Parker have on Baxter.
Yes we won but still not happy because we not playing attractive football going forward and defending. Poor derby display I'm not happy at all but take 3 points and go home.
