Pirates took the lead seven minutes before the break as Thembinkhosi Lorch pounced on a poor headed clearance from Reeve Frosler before rounding Daniel Akepyi and giving Pirates the lead despite Chiefs having all the early chances.

Chiefs then missed a spot kick at the start of the second half before Pirates were denied what they believed was a certain penalty 10 minutes later.

The Buccaneers doubled their advantage through Siphesihle Ndlovu with 11 minutes to play, as the substitute rounded off a speedy counter-attack.

Chiefs gave themselves a life line when Daniel Cardoso netted with six minutes of normal time but it proved too little, too late as the Sea Robbers held on for the three points.
