G'Day and welcome to the Orlando Stadium in Soweto for our coverage of this DStv Premiership encounter between Orlando Pirates and Chippa United.
1'
Kick-off! We are underway here in Soweto!
3'
Great clearance by Mathiane in defence after Pirates launch an attack down the left.
5'
Peprah is off on a solo run down the left for Pirates. He reaches the box before stopping to swop feet and that's just enough for the defence to clear. He should have done better.
7'
It's been mainly Pirates controlling possession in the early stages.
8'
We have a stoppage and Chippa's Banda is in need of attention.
10'
Pule pushes forward down the middle before the Chippa defence catch up with him. They get it back and then Peprah's header flies WIDE!
12'
At the moment Chippa are doing just what is needed to contain the Pirates attackers.
13'
Banda under pressure concedes the first corner in favour of Pirates.
14'
The in-swinging corner is cleared away by Chippa for another. This time Chippa get it away.
15'
Lorch is fouled by Mathiane for a promising set-piece but they fail to make decent use of it.
18'
After a brief injury stoppage where Kazapua required attention we are back underway.
19'
Hotto DENIED by a desperate challenge from Kammies, who concedes a corner. That was good interplay by Pirates but the defender did well.
21'
Bucs have another corner and good work by Mathiane, who HEADS the in-swinger clear.
22'
Following a brief counter-attack Chippa have a corner.
24'
It was a decent out-swinger corner kick and Pfumbidzai, who is uh-marked misses the target.
25'
YELLOW CARD, CHIPPA UNITED, POGGENPOEL! 0-0: Brooklyn Poggenpoel is the first in the book after a foul on Monare.
26'
An early ball inside by Chippa into the box after a run down the left but the Pirates defence do well and clear.
28'
Monyane does well with his run and secures yet another Pirates corner. Chippa clear their line easily after it is floated in.
30'
Peprah into a gap and into the box. Again he steadies himself thereby allowing the defence to reach him. Poor again but credit to Chabalala for superb defending!
34'
WIDE! Lorch into a gap and sends a pass to Hotto, who tries his shot but it flies across the face of goal and Peprah is also unable to get there.
35'
Matrose tries a little lob to try and surprise the Pirates keeper but it flies OVER!
37'
It is rather stop-start at the moment with players down almost every 30 seconds.
39'
Pirates build nicely but after Hotto goes to and fro in the box, he passes to Peprah, who then gives it away.
40'
Perprah with a good pass into the area for Pirates but the keeper gets there before Monyane for a Pirates corner that is cleared by Chippa.
42'
YELLOW CARD, ORLANDO PIRATES, SIBISI! 0-0: Sibisi is booked after a really late challenge on Chabalala.
43'
YELLOW CARD, CHIPPA UNITED, KAMMIES! 0-0: Another late challenge and this time Kammies. It's FEISTY out there!
44'
SIDE-NETTING thanks to a good stop by Ofori after a run down the right by Appollis. Nice from Chippa.
45'
HALF-TIME: ORLANDO PIRATES 0-0 CHIPPA UNITED. Pirates have dominated possession and have had the best chances but Peprah in particular was a waster. They will get a good talking to during the break. The Chippa defence are holding on for now.
46'
Kick-off! We are back underway in the second half.
47'
Will Pirates continue where they left off but just convert the chances? Time will tell.
48'
Appollis is down for Chippa and in need of attention.
50'
Pirates secure their first corner of the half but they fail to make it productive.
52'
Peprah is away and in acres of space but surprise-surprise he is OFFSIDE!
54'
A good ball from Peprah finds Lorch and he wastes the BEST CHANCE OF THE AFTERNOON. He went for glory when he could have passed. It's WIDE!
56'
Pirates have a decent free-kick after a foul on Pule but after some chaos in the Chippa box the ball is cleared.
57'
SUBSTITUTION: Appollis is forced to retire after the injury and has been replaced by Kambindu for Chippa.
60'
NO PENALTY! Monyane is down in the Chippa box but the referee is NOT INTERESTED. It was a decent shout.
61'
SUBSTITUTION: Nga is on for Pirates in place of Peprah.
63'
Pirates continue to push forward now and Hotto's long-range shot is BLOCKED!
65'
WASTED by Pirates again! Hotto and Lorch were playing dummy's in the box but Chippa stuck to their guns and secure a free-kick. The Pirates coach must be fuming. That had a goal written all over it.
67'
Lorch into space now down the right. His cross finds Hotto and after some more chaos Chippa clear.
70'
SUBSTITUTION: We have a number of changes for both teams now, as they plan for the final 20 minutes. Pirates bring on Timm for Mosele and Xoki for Sibisi. Chippa removed Matrose for Mini and Mqokozo for Luthuli.
72'
Nga misses a GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY for Pirates after a superb Lorch cross. The header is WIDE!
74'
Lorch now sends a perfectly timed cross over the defence and into the box but Monare cannot FINISH!
75'
With 15 minutes to go we are still goalless.
77'
Bucs secure a promising free-kick down the left. Hotto floats it in but it's not his best effort.
78'
Kazapua is involved in a collision with his defender Kammies. We have a brief stoppage.
80'
Lorch with a superb pass again but again the target practice from Nga is POOR and it's WIDE!
81'
SUBSTITUTION: Chippa make more changes. Poggenpoel is off for Mbenyane. September is also on for Pietersen.
83'

88'
Chippa will have to defend with all they have now. Pirates will come with FORCE!
90'
Chippa with some good ball now and they are just trying to keep it inside the Pirates half.
