Orlando Pirates are slowly but surely marching on and forcing themselves into Absa Premiership title contention as they continue to notch up win after win.
Vincent Pule’s 52nd minute strike ensured Bucs win their fourth league match in a row as it proved enough to down a stubborn basement club AmaZulu in Orlando on Saturday.
This result pushed the Sea Robbers’ ship to fourth position on the Premiership standings as they have amassed 13 points out of 15 in five matches.
The victory gave Bucs new coach Josep Zinnbauer his fourth successive victory at home while also stretching his unbeaten run to six matches that only has one draw.
Zinnbauer’s team now has a chance to force a photo-finish to the league race that involves Chiefs, defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns and SuperSport United.
On the other hand, Usuthu coach Josep Vukusic may well be in his last days on their bench after gaining only one point from the last five matches as the Buccaneers added more woes to Usuthu as they continued with their fine run.
