Pirates scrape past Celtic to remain on track for Nedbank glory

An extra-time goal from Thamsanqa Gabuza saw Orlando Pirates edging past Bloemfontein Celtic 2-1 in a Nedbank Cup quarter-final match at the Orlando Stadium on Saturday night.

It could well have been Phunya Sele Sele who emerged victorious from a see-saw game, but a succession of missed chances by the visitors late in the match proved costly as the Buccaneers rode their luck somewhat before joining SuperSport United, Chippa United and Golden Arrows in the semis.
