A shocking defeat to Orlando Pirates saw the Ndebele side move away from the relegation zone.

Mandla Ncikazi’s side went to Nelspruit with a mission to collect three points and move a little bit closer to Cape town city, and possibly, Royal AM Football Club also.

TS Galaxy managed to find the back of the net jusr after 30 minutes since the match began. The former Maritzburg united star Lifa Hlongwane was the only goal score in the game, assisted by Lindokuhle Mbatha.

In the 2nd half, the Orlando Pirates coach Mandla Ncikazi tried to change the formation, introducing the midfielder Fortune Makaring for the central defender, Happy Jele.

He also replaced the midfielder Linda Mntambo with the Ghanaian striker Kwame Peprah. All those Orlando Pirates key player did not change the game and Orlando Pirates were forced to eat the humble pie.

Should Amakhosi win the match against Marumo Gallants, they will surpass Orlando Pirates and move to the 4th position.
