LIVE BLOG: Kaizer Chiefs 2-1 Orlando Pirates, all the Soweto derby action
Kaizer Chiefs claimed the Soweto derby bragging rights after beating Orlando Pirates 2-1 in a DStv Premiership clash at FNB Stadium on Saturday.
Chiefs come into the clash having suffered a 1-0 home defeat at the hands of Stellenbosch FC in midweek, with a stunning Ashley Du Preez goal giving the Cape side a hard-fought but deserved victory at Soccer City.
Pirates, meanwhile, may have claimed a 2-1 home win over Sekhukhune United in midweek, but they have notched only two more points than Chiefs this season.
