Hello and welcome to our live coverage of this DStv Premiership clash between Orlando Pirates and TS Galaxy at Orlando Stadium. The Buccaneers are in desperate need of a victory as they look to stay in touch with the league's leading pack.
1'
TS Galaxy get the match up and running at Orlando Stadium.
3'
Makaringe scythes through the TS Galaxy midfield and goes for goal from long range, but fires off target.
6'
Pirates look to make inroads on their right-hand side, with Tshobeni involved in the build-up, but they pass the ball out of play beyond the byline. Goal-kick.
10'
Again, Pirates look to get in behind out wide. This time, they look to release Sam on their left-hand side, but Fransman anticipates the danger, shuffles across and wins the ball.
11'
GOAL, PIRATES, SAM! 1-0: Pirates attack down the left again and Makaringe squares for Sam, who slots home!
12'
SAVE! TS Galaxy immediately go on the attack and Macuphu is able to turn and shoot, but Ofori dives to his right to make a fine save to deny him.
16'
It's been a physical game so far with some heavy challenges. Pirates still have the upper hand, but TS Galaxy have responded well to conceding.
17'
Aubaas tries a shot at goal from long range. It takes a deflection and ends up being a simple save for Ofori.
18'
Once more, Makaringe goes on a marauding run through the middle. Yet again, Fransman is the man who snuffs out the danger with a wonderful tackle.
20'
GOAL, TS GALAXY, PHOHLONGO! 1-1: Phohlongo meets a cross at the back post, beating Hotto to the ball and beating Ofori with the header!
22'
TS Galaxy continue to threaten as a long-range shot misses the target.
24'
Tshobeni tries a long-range shot himself now, but that also misses the target.
25'
Maela plays the ball over the top for Lorch, but Heugh rushes out to take it off him. Goal-kick says the referee. Pirates might have something to say about that -- it could well have been a corner.
27'
Makaringe meets a wonderfully-weighted ball from deep, but heads off target. That was a wonderful ball from Tshobeni and deserved a finish. In fairness, Makaringe's run was impressive.
30'
Hotto unleashes a curling effort from just outside the box, but Heugh does well to get behind it and hang on.
31'
Hotto is crowded as he looks to shoot outside the box again. He opts to try to play Sam in behind, but that plan doesn't quite work out.
33'
Motshwari is down following a challenge from Mbunjana. Players from both sides swarm around referee Euguene Mdluli. Mbunjana picks up a yellow card for his sins.
36'
Sam is taken off for the time being with what appears to be an ankle injury.
37'
Mbatha's corner finds Modisane, but he can't connect cleanly enough to steer the headed effort on target.
42'
Pirates win another free-kick against Mbunjana for a foul on Tshobeni. No second yellow card is dished out, but he needs to watch himself.
45'
HALF-TIME: 1-1
45'
Into two minutes of stoppage time we go at the end of the first half.
46'
Off we go for the start of the second half at Orlando Stadium with the scores level at 1-1. Pule is on for Orlando Pirates in place of Tshobeni.
49'
Jele is down after apparently taking a boot to the shoulder. He gets back up and soldiers on for the moment.
50'
Pirates look to play Sam in behind again, but Heugh gets to the ball first.
52'
Modisane catches Maela with a high boot and picks up a yellow card. That could very easily have been red. He's a lucky man.
55'
Lorch is played into space on Orlando Pirates' left. He looks for the ball into the area, but it's disappointing as TS Galaxy get the block in.
59'
Phohlongo, who has already scored today for TS Galaxy, is down and receiving medical attention. It's been a bruising fixture.
61'
Phohlongo succumbs to injury as Bodibe comes on for TS Galaxy.
63'
Fransman leaves the field of play temporarily after becoming the latest player to take a knock.
64'
Sam is played in behind on Pirates' left again. However, Hotto is put off and hooks his shot after the ball is squared to him. TS Galaxy survive!
66'
Ofori is nearly tested by a long-range shot, but it just misses the target.
67'
Once again, Hotto is unable to capitalise on a ball squared in from the left.
69'
WOODWORK! Hotto strikes the woodwork as he looks to squeeze the ball into the top corner. Pirates are getting ever closer.
70'
Makusu is on for Motshwari in Pirates colours and Badenhorst for Lekay for TS Galaxy.
74'
Aubaas is fouled and wins a free-kick for TS Galaxy. However, he stays down.
78'
Lorch fires for goal from long range with a cracking strike, but it just fizzes wide of the post!
80'
Maela goes into the book, picking up a suspension along with the yellow card. He will miss the Soweto derby this weekend.
82'
Msimango comes on for TS Galaxy, replacing Mokoena.
83'
Aubaas finally makes way, with Nduli the man to replace him.
84'
Mahlangu goes for goal from distance, but he fires off target.
88'
Lorch avoids a yellow card despite what clearly appeared to be a deliberate clip on Mbunjana.
88'
Yet again, the ball comes in from Pirates' left. Once more, it's cleared. Josef Zinnbauer can be forgiven if he is tearing his hair out at the moment.
90'
Into five minutes of stoppage time we go at the end of the match. Pirates will be kicking themselves if they can't pick up all three points.
90'
Mbunjana goes for goal from long range with the outside of his boot, but fires off target.
93'
Hotto's cross from the left is collected by Heugh. Time is running out for the Buccaneers.
96'
FULL-TIME: ORLANDO PIRATES 1-1 TS GALAXY. The match comes to an end with Pirates unable to find a winner. Sam's opener was cancelled out by Phohlongo in the first half and it's two more points dropped for Josef Zinnbauer's men.
