Hello and welcome to our coverage of today's DStv Premiership clash between Orlando Pirates and Moroka Swallows, live from the Orlando Stadium.
1'
KICK OFF: We're underway!
2'
Sandilands is tested early on, but there’s not enough power behind the shot to trouble the Bucs shot-stopper.
6'
The corner is taken short, and it results in yet another corner as Dzvukamanja’s shot is blocked.
6'
An early corner for the Buccaneers after Wandisile Letlabika deflects the ball out of play.
10'
10 minutes gone here. Orlando Pirates are in the ascendency but yet to find a breakthrough.
12'
Chance! Thabo Matlaba, who is always dangerous from long range, unleashes a shot from distance, which bounces awkwardly in front of Sandilands, who is forced to dive to his left and make a vital save.
16'
Play is stopped as Matlaba receives treatment after what appears to be a hamstring pull.
17'
Substitution: Matlaba can't continue. Swallows make a change, and it’s Sifiso Hlanti on for the injured Matlaba.
19'
Hlanti is into the action immediately, forcing a save from Sandilands.
20'
Chance! Ruzaigh Gamaldien is clear on goal, but shoots straight at Sandilands.
25'
Another corner for Pirates after Vuyo Mere stops Deon Hotto from out wide. The corner is cleared comfortably by the Swallows defence.
27'
Monare blocks out Hlanti’s cross, sending the ball out for another corner.
30'
Jooste does well to beat three defenders on the right flank, before prompting Virgil Vries into a desperate save to cut off the cross.
33'
Jooste tries his luck from well out wide, but only succeeds in hitting the stands.
37'
Makaringe shoots from the edge of the box but his effort is deflected out and goes for a corner.
40'
Pirates players appeal for a penalty after Hotto goes to ground, but there’s no response from the referee.
45'
There will be one minute of added time.
46'
SECOND HALF: We're back underway!
46'
HALF TIME: A frantic 45 minutes of play, but with nothing to show on the scoresheet from either side. Big second half coming up.
47'
A heart-in-mouth moment for Paseka Mako, who is repossessed in a dangerous area, but shows great determination to win the ball back and clear the danger.
52'
Jooste delivers a dangerous cross into the box, but no one is there to turn it into the net.
55'
A great stop by Sandilands, who blocks out a shot from Gamildien after the Swallows’ marksman found a way behind the Bucs defence.
58'
Jooste creates space to take a shot from range, but accuracy lets him down as the ball sails well over the bar.
60'
An hour gone here at the Orlando Stadium but we remain goalless.
61'
Lorch takes the set-piece, but his curling effort does not bend enough to land in the back of the net.
62'
Substitution: Ndlovu and Mhango are on in place of Monare and Dzvukamanja.
67'
Sandilands is again on top of things as the very slippery Sekgota finds a way to release a shot low towards his near post.
70'
Another penalty shout results in Makaringe getting cautioned for simulation, despite the referee initially pointing to the spot.
76'
A scramble inside the Swallows box almost results in a goal, but the slippery surface proves decisive as Hotto fails to release a shot.
78'
Hlatshwayo is cautioned.
83'
An attacking change as Makusu Mundele comes in for Wayde Jooste.
85'
GOAL! Motshwari scores! The Buccaneers take the lead five minutes from time. Ben Motshwari is the man on the scoresheet with a superbly taken half-volley at the edge of the box.
89'
Hotto makes a brilliant run out wide, but is flagged offside.
90'
A double change made by Coach Zinnbauer with Thembinkosi Lorch making way for Bongani Sam, while Innocent Maela comes on for Deon Hotto.
93'
GOAL! Swallows have equalised in injury time as Kamohelo Mahlatsi turns in a Sifiso Hlanti cross.
95'
FULL TIME! It ends level at Orlando Stadium after Swallows’ late equaliser. A thrilling encounter to end the weekend.
