Makola & Manyisa Lead Bucs Into Nedbank Quarters

Mpho Makola and Oupa Manyisa were among the goals as Orlando Pirates defeated Free State Stars 4-1 to advance in the Nedbank Cup. Pirates were rewarded for a fine start, as Mpho Makola collected a pass from Happy Jele before rifling the ball into the far corner from 25-yards out in the 20th minute. Pirates had a chance to extend their lead in the 39th minute when Makola picked out Thabo Matlaba in the box, but the full-back could only head over from close range.
However, Stars leveled matters five minutes before the halftime break as Sifiso Mbhele rose well and sent a towering header into the far corner. Pirates restored their lead shortly after the halftime break Okumo headed Makola's cross into his own net, with Mafoumbi left stranded. It went from bad to worse for Stars in the 76th minute when Makhehlene Makhaula was sent off for picking up his second yellow card of the game.
Thembinkosi Lorch rounded off the scoring in the final minute of stoppage time, as with a fine finish from 12-yards out, 1-4.
