All roads lead to FNB Stadium for the Soweto derby as Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs battle it out to decide who meets Moroka Swallows in the MTN-8 final, after the Dube Birds dispatched Ajax Cape Town in spectacular fashion yesterday. The final will surely be yet another Soweto Derby. Swallows won 3-2.
The Urban Warriors were in it by injury time but Swallows were not over and out as they stormed into the final at the dearth. Moroka Swallows were 2-0 up at one point with goals from Siyabonga Nomvete. Ajax pulled a goal back in controvential circumstances when the ball that crossed the by-line was crossed before being headed in for a goal. The equaliser came at the end of the match, setting Swallows back for a minute, as the Birds grabbed the all important goal before the referee called it over.
Pirates will be looking to finish well to beat Amakhosi. The Happy People are playing a shade below par and are a little wasteful in front of goal. Chiefs on their part are less elaborate and a little more efficient in front of goal. Actually, Knowledge Musona should be named Chief Musona for his exploits at Naturena. He is a one-man gang that Pirates are a worried team.
Pirates will however beat Chiefs in today’s match to change the complexion of history. Teko Modise will have to be at his best to stop inspirational Simphiwe Tshabalala and Reneiloe Letsholonyane.
