Orlando Pirates went into their Nedbank Cup Last 32 match against Uthongathi FC as clear favourites to advance to the next round.

However, the Buccaneers had to dig deep for a 1-0 win over the National First Division (NFD) side, who gave a good account of themselves at Orlando Stadium.

The only goal of the match was netted by Frank Mhango in the 63rd minute and the Malawi international cut a relieved figure after hitting the back of the net.

The win saw Pirates advance to the Round of 16 after securing a hard-fought win, while Uthongathi defender Xolani Slawula, who frustrated the Bucs attackers, was named Man of the Match.

Football fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the game and many of them were not happy with the Buccaneers’ performance against Cane Cutters.
