Pirates were forced into an early substitution in the first half of the game as Richard Ofori sustained an injury, replacing him with Siyabonga Mpontshane – who proved to be an important addition in the game as he whipped in impressive crosses in the opponent’s 18-yard box consistently.
The second half of the game came with more chances for Pirates as Fortune Makaringe, Vincent Pule and Thulani Hlatshwayo all made attempts to no avail as they were denied for failing to hit the target.
Following this stalemate which ended 0-0 for both teams, Pirates are set to play against Enyimba next.
