Hello and welcome to our live coverage of the PSL fixture between Cape Town City and Orlando Pirates from the Danie Craven Stadium.
1'
KICK OFF! 0-0. We are underway under the blue skies of Cape Town. There will be water breaks today with the weather reaching the low 30's.
2'
CHANCE! Early chance as Lepasa plays Hotto in but the shot is wide of the post. It should be 1-0 to Pirates.
4'
City with the first corner of the match but they go short before putting it into the box. It is easily cleared by Pirates.
7'
GOAL! CITY! MDANTSANE! 1-0. Great start for City. Martin plays a low cross in from the right, Mdantsane controls well, cuts in and curls it inside the far post.
10'
City have looked bright going forward today. Pace of the game surprisingly good considering the heat.
13'
Set piece for Pirates down the right. They need a good ball into the box here, but it doesn't beat the first man.
17'
GOAL! PIRATES! PULE! 1-1. We are level again. Hotto has space in the box down the left, he shoots and the save is made, but if falls in Pule's path who finishes with ease.
18'
City will be disappointed with that but both defenses have looked a bit dodgy thus far.
20'
City should be ahead again but the free header is high and wide. Good work by City until that point.
22'
Leeuwenburgh pulls off a great save to deny Lepasa. What a save by the City keeper. Chances continue to fall for both sides.
23'
The players are enjoying a quick water break.
26'
Pirates carving out opportunities at will here. Leeuwenburgh keeping City in the game.
29'
Great counter attacking opportunity for City but Ralani's touch is horrid and Pirates recover.
32'
UPDATE: 1-1. City took the lead early on but Pirates equalised. If not for poor finishing there could have been more goals.
33'
GOAL! CITY! MOBARA! 2-1. Mobara with a cracker from a long way out. Some huge swerve on the ball.
34'
Pirates could easily have scored 3 or 4 by now but City lead through a former Pirates player. Brilliant game thus far.
37'
This has been one of the better matches of the season thus far. The heat does not seem to affect the players, although the pace will surely drop in the second half.
40'
Pule does well to win a throw-in after chasing what looked a lost cause.
43'
As we approach the break City have another opportunity to put a good ball in. Keeper comes out to collect well.
45'
+3 HALF TIME! 2-1. City lead at the break but Pirates will rue the chances they have missed. Hopefully the second half brings just as much action as the first.
45'
There will be three minutes added on.
46'
KICK OFF! 2-1. The second half is underway. Can Pirates fashion some more chances or will City hold on for the three points?
48'
City will be happy to sit back now and catch Pirates on the counter in this second half.
50'
CLOSE! Pirates have struck the crossbar. What a cracking effort, City riding their luck this afternoon.
53'
Both teams still looking bright going forward here. The heat has not affected the pace just yet.
57'
SUB for City - Makola on Mdantsane comes off.
59'
UPDATE: 2-1. The score remains as it was at the break. It certainly looks like there is more goals in this game, it is about whether either team can finish the chances that keep coming.
63'
Predictably the players are tiring fast now. Some very tired legs out there, which isn't surprising given the conditions.
64'
Chances have also dried up. Pirates will have to carve out at least one more chance and take it if they hope to remain unbeaten.
66'
GOAL! PIRATES! PULE! 2-2. Lepasa does brilliantly as he runs from his own box before playing Hotto in. Hotto backheels to Pule who scores.
69'
SUB for City - Morris is on for Prince.
73'
SUB for Pirates - Jooste and Lepasa make way. Mabasa and Ndlovu come on.
75'
Pirates again pushing forward and Mabasa has a chance! But it hits the post and goes for a goal kick.
77'
Superb work by Morris. A long ball is played forward and the veteran forwards controls perfectly. He has no support but forces a left-footed shot that goes narrowly wide.
80'
We are into the final 10 minutes of the match. Who wants it more - Pirates look like they are the most likely, but City have been good on the break in the second half.
83'
SUB for City - Zulu on for Martin.
86'
Mobara does well to defend a cross but Pirates have a corner.
89'
We are into the 90th minute here. This match deserves some late drama but it will be harsh on either team to lose this one.
90'
+5 FULL TIME! 2-2. It ends level here in Cape Town. Cracking game, the second half wasn't quite as exciting but plenty action throughout. Share of the spoils it is.
90'
+4 Horrid attempt as it hits the wall at shin hight.
90'
+4 Free kick to City just outside the Pirates box. Who will step up to take this?
90'
+1 Mabasa with a long range effort but straight at the keeper.
90'
There will be 5 minutes of time added on.
