The Bucs turned on the style in an error prone Derby, edging out their greatest rivals Kaizer Chiefs, 2-1

For the opener a mistake by Siyabonga Mpontshane, allowed Khama Billiat in for an easy tap in, and the former Mamelodi Sundowns star made no mistake as he netted his fourth goal of the campaign for Kaizer Chiefs from close range.

The Amakhosi's lead was short-lived as Innocent Maela eventually guided his header past Itumeleng Khune on the half hour mark. This equaliser captured the imagination of the FNB Stadium in what was becoming one of the better Soweto Derby's in recent times.

Pirates then moved ahead in just three minutes to complete the turnaround. Justin Shonga and Augustine Mulenga linked up very well to setup top scorer Vincent Pule. Bucs did superbly well to hold on to their lead and prove that they're genuine PSL title contenders.

In one of the highlights of this Twitter reaction we also include some pre-game buzz, such as Manchester United legend Dwight Yorke giving his view on the game.

Then we find out that 44 countries were watching South Africa's big Derby. Is there still any doubt that this is the biggest game in the PSL?
