FT: Pirates 0-1 Chiefs


Kaizer Chiefs have beaten rivals Orlando Pirates 1-0 at FNB Stadium to go seven points clear at the top of the Absa Premiership standings.

Lebo Manyama’s goal separated the two sides on the day.

But it was goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi’s heroics in goal that ensured maximum points (and the bragging rights) for the Glamour Boys.

The Nigerian produced a number of great saves to deny Pirates an equaliser.

Chiefs move to 48 points with 9 matches remaining, while Mamelodi Sundowns are second with 41 points.
