Baroka have come from two goals down to hold Orlando Pirates to a 2-2 stalemate in an Absa Premiership match in Polokwane this afternoon. Elvis Chipezeze kept his side in the match with fine saves.

Pirates’ persistence eventually paid off as Linda Mntambo found the back of the net. And early in the second half, a mistake by Chipezeze was duly punished by substitute, Kabelo Dlamini.

Baroka were trailing 2-0 until Happy Jele’s 82nd minute own goal brought them back into the match. As if that was not bad enough for the Buccaneers, Gerald Phiri made it 2-0.

In another match in Limpopo, Black Leopards and AmaZulu played out to a goalless draw at the Thohoyandou stadium.
