JOHANNESBURG - Orlando Pirates came from behind to defeat Supersport United 2-1 at the peter Mokaba Stadium in a highly entertaining clash.

Thuso Phala's well-taken goal saw Matsatsansta into the break with a slender lead, cancelled out by Issa Sarr, and his first league goal in Pirates colours.

The search for the winner went deep into optional time, and Sifiso Myeni took full advantage of poor defending to hand Pirates a 5th win of the season.

Supersport United now turn their attentions to next weekend's Telkom Knockout Final against Platinum Stars.
