We look at the five talking points from this past weekend PSL matches.
Orlando Pirates make light work of Amazulu
Orlando Pirates ended their three-match winless run in emphatic fashion as they romped to a 4-1 victory over AmaZulu at Orlando Stadium on Saturday evening.
Amazulu drew first blood, claiming the lead through Jabulani Ncobeni in the 17th minute of play. However, Pirates quickly stormed back to draw level and eventually went on to win by a massive margin, with Kudakwashe Mahachi, Luvuyo Memela, Justin Shonga and Ben Motshwari getting their names on the scoresheet.
Free State Stars edge Celtic
Free State Stars survived a spirited comeback from hosts Bloem Celtic at the Dr Molemela Stadium in Bloemfontein on Sunday.
The opening chance of the match came from a Stars counterattack in the 12th minute. Under pressure from the hosts, they cleared a set piece and pounced on the ball. Midfielder Sinethemba Jantjie did well to set up Sibusiso Hlubi whose strike hit the side-netting.
Middendorp frustrated after Chiefs fail to find winner
Kaizer Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp was a frustrated man after watching his team play to a 1-1 draw in an Absa Premiership clash against Polokwane City on Saturday.
The Amakhosi went ahead as early as the 15th minute at the Peter Mokaba Stadium after Daniel Cardoso converted a penalty but the hosts equalised just five minutes later through Walter Musona.
Baroka claim SuperSport scalp
The hosts started the match on the front foot and dominated possession in the early exchanges, but had to wait until the 17th minute for their first meaningful shot on goal.
Bidvest Wits failed to make their numerical advantage count as they were held to a 1-1 draw by 10-man Mamelodi Sundowns at Bidvest Stadium on Saturday evening.
Masandawana drew first blood, claiming the lead after just seven minutes of play thanks to Phakamani Mahlambi, before Gift Motupa levelled matters on the half-hour mark. Wayne Arendse received his marching orders in the 37th minute after a cynical foul on Lyle Lakay, but Sundowns were able to hold on with ten men for the rest of the encounter to claim a hard-fought point.
