90' +5 - Ndoro in space, shoots, but well over the bar!

90' +4 - Two minutes of added time for one of these teams to find a winner, otherwise we will have penalties!

01 Aug 2015

90' - We will have 6 minutes of added time at the end of the second half. 

01 Aug 2015

89' - Chiefs substitution

Lebese is replaced by Matovo.

01 Aug 2015

87' - And now Pirates have an excellent chance but Masuku tries one touch too many and his control lets him down. Chiefs clear. 

01 Aug 2015

86' - Oh so close from Mthembu as he finds himself in space on the right. His shot, however hits the side netting! That could have won it for Chiefs!

01 Aug 2015

85' - Five minutes away from penalties folks!

01 Aug 2015

84' - Memela forces a smart save out of Pieterse down the other end!

01 Aug 2015

82' - Chiefs are pushing for the winner here as Tshabalala and Letsholonyane combine brilliantly, the final pass is just a little too strong. 

01 Aug 2015

81' - Kaizer Chiefs substitution

Masilela is replaced by Ritchie.

01 Aug 2015

78' - End to end now from both teams. A promising Chiefs attack stopped, Pirates break upfield with Ndoro finding himself in the same position as a minute earlier. He shoots this time, but straight at the keeper. 

01 Aug 2015

77' - Ndoro breaks down the right for Pirates, he looks to roll the ball into the box but the Chiefs defence just manage to clear. Ndoro had plenty of space, he might have had a shot himself. 

01 Aug 2015

76' - Orlando Pirates substitution

Sarr is replaced by Gyimah.

Myeni is replaced by Memela 

01 Aug 2015

65' - An excellent goal by Chiefs as Letsholonyane is put into space by an excellent back-heel by Mthembu who has just come on the field! Letsholonyane makes no mistake as he slot past Mhlongo.

GOAL - KAIZER CHIEFS!

01 Aug 2015

64' - Chiefs Substitution

Zulu is replaced by Mthembu.

01 Aug 2015

63' - A break in play as Mhlongo is down for treatment. He seems to have hurt his ankle. He will continue however. 

01 Aug 2015

61'Tshabalala unleashes a wicked left-footed free-kick but Mhlongo is equal to the task. 

01 Aug 2015

60' - A foul by Sarr gives Chiefs a free-kick in a very dangerous position. Tshabalala is over the ball. 

01 Aug 2015

58' - Ndoro latches onto a defensive mistake by the Chiefs back four, his shot is parried away by Pieterse

01 Aug 2015

55' - YELLOW CARD to Phungwayo

That was for a very strong challenge. The referee had no option to book him there.

That's both the fan substitutions done in this year's Carling Cup.

Masuku replaces Majoro.

53' - Chiefs substitution 

Katsande replaces Maluleka.

01 Aug 2015

49' - More danger for Pirates as some sloppy defending allows Tshabalala to flick a ball across the face of goal. Mhlongo cannot collect first time, but clears quickly before a Chief's player can react. 

01 Aug 2015

49' - That really was an unbelievable miss by the Chief's captain! They should really be level!

01 Aug 2015

46' - What a chance for Chiefs, but not taken! Parker puts an inch-perfect cross in at the right-hand upright, Tshabalala rises unmarked but can only steer his header wide. He should have hit the target there!

45' - Pirates get us underway for the second half.
