From the 5 games, Orlando Pirates has thirteen points. That was enough for Josef to win cheers, after the initial shock of his appointment as coach. He was a stranger to everyone at first, but the results began to say everything.
Looking in the Supabets results, Josef has four wins and only one draw in five games played. Although no one can be sure that this is a sufficient recipe for success, for now, it is on the right track. Another delight for Orlando Pirates fans came on Saturday when they won the game against Highland Park, it was the fourth win in five games.
Orlando Pirates vs Highland Park highlights
The Orlando Pirates ended the week in the best possible way, a win against Highland Park. The final score in that game was 3-1 for the Pirates. This was the third consecutive home win for the Orlando Pirates.
This victory came just two days after beating Mamelodi Sundowns 1-0. In the game against Highland Park, the Pirates scored two goals in the first 11 minutes. The first goal was scored by Lorch Thembinkosi and the second by Mhango.

In the second half, the Pirates had a simple task to keep the score. Highland Park had to chase the result. They tried to make a few changes and get closer to the result. But that wasn’t enough. In 81st minute they manage to score their first goal in this match. The scorer was Mlungisi Mbunjana. But that wasn’t enough to win this game.
Both teams began this game with the news that PSL President Irvin Khoza’s wife died. As a result, all clubs respected a minute of silence before the start of the game. After the last match, Josef had to make some changes in the team, but those changes were good enough to continue his winning streak.
