On monday 9-04-2012,Orlando Pirates beat the religation strugglers Jomo Cosmos 2-1 at Orlando stadium to keep their hope of defending the title.
Pirates were too strong for Cosmos where they managed to grab the three ponts in the last minutes of day to keep on the run of winning the Premier Soccer League title.The win gave the soweto giant hopes of deffending their title and putting pressure on the Brazillians.
Pirates has been doing well since the dismisal of their head coach,the Brazillian born Julio Leal.
Good things about Pirates at the moment:
- They have good character in the field of play
- They show determination of winning as a team
- They respect their opponents
- They have good quality players who are willing to win
While their counter part Mamelodi Sundowns are showing the determination of winning the title this season as it has being long for them to win something.Mamelodi Sundowns played Limpopo side Black Leopards at Peter Mokaba on Wednesday night to keep their title hopes alive by beating them with the same score as Pirates(2-1).

Sundowns despite spending too much cash in the previous seasons buying players,their are determined to change all that by winning the title and making their supporters happy.They want to make a double this season after qualifying in the quarter finals of the Nedbank Cup.
This gives to much pressure on both teams sharing the same points with Sundowns having a better goal difference on Pirates.The questions who is going to be the last standing at the end of the season?
