Chiefs and Pirates share the spoils in the derby

As always, the Soweto Derby promised another feast of action but once again, the spoils were shared.

Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates draw 0-0 during the Soweto derby. Picture: Twitter @KaizerChiefs.

JOHANNESBURG - As always, the Soweto Derby promised another feast of action, with both coaches even going as far as claiming that their sides will win 2-0, but once again, the spoils were shared.

The first half was a little cagey, with not much to speak of from a goal scoring point of view...a header from Chiefs' Siyabonga Ngezana that hit the upright was all there was in that half.

But then things switched on in the second half and Thabo Qalinge came very close to breaking the deadlock with his effort also rattling the crossbar and going out.

With Pirates having their tails up, Bernard Morrison got in on the action, pouncing on a Mpho Makola shot, but he channeled his inner Maradona, as he poked the ball into the net using his hand.

Neither team enjoyed much time on the ball, to dictate the tempo of the game, as it was just counter attack, after counter attack, that resulted in nothing on goal.

Itumeleng Khune and Wayne Sandilands have definitely walked away the happier of 22 players, as the goalkeepers bag another clean sheet.
