Or­lando Pi­rates have kept their Absa Premier­ship ti­tle hopes alive by hand­ing out­go­ing cham­pi­ons Bid­vest Wits a 4-0 thrash­ing at an empty Or­lando Sta­dium on Wed­nes­day evening.

The match, played be­hind closed doors, saw the Buc­ca­neers claim an em­phatic vic­tory and close the gap to lead­ers Mamelodi Sun­downs to four points, with the Brazil­ians held 2-2 in a con­cur­rent match by Mar­itzburg United.

The re­sult also sees the Clever Boys just two points above the rel­e­ga­tion zone and they will need a strong end to the cam­paign to en­sure they don’t end up in the play­offs.
