Mamelodi Sundowns Thrash Pirates To Extend Lead On Top Of Premier League

Safranko snatched a brace inside the last 20 minutes when he slotted in a loose ball in the area with the Buccaneers left for dead in defence By KickOff And Soccer Laduma The Mamelodi Sundowns juggernaut kept rolling forward on Friday with a dominant 4-1 victory over Orlando Pirates in their DStv Premiership clash at Loftus Versfeld. Themba Zwane, Pavol Safranko, with a brace, and Peter Shalulile were all on target for Masandawana, who now have 13 wins and four draws from 17 matches played this season. A fifth consecutive league title looks like a mere formality for the Tshwane club, establishing an 18-point lead over nearest rivals Kaizer Chiefs. The defending champions started brightly and Thapelo Morena had the first chance of the game, but he volleyed over the over from a Lyle Lakay cross. Dean Hotto had an opportunity to give the Buccaneers the lead, but the forward pulled his left-footed effort wide. In the 36th minute, Shalulile was played in by Andile Jali, but the forward stumbled after a challenge by Pirates defender Bandile Shandu and hit the shot wide of goal. Pirates would have been the happier of the teams as the game remained goalless
