Looking Back: Chiefs v Pirates - 1996/97 10/12/03
This Saturday almost the whole of South Africa will come to a standstill as the two biggest clubs in the country, and arguably in Africa, come head-to-head in a football tradition - the Soweto derby.

In the build-up to the game this week, SASoccer365.com will be taking a look at past matches, starting with the matches played in the 1996/7 Castle Premiership season.

Orlando Pirates won the first derby, courtesy of a Jerry 'Legs Of Thunder' Sikhosana goal.

At the time the duel between the country's best keeper, Brian Baloyi, and the Pirates red-hot striker, Sikhosana, reached feverish heights, but it was the latter who triumphed on the day.

In the second round game of the same season the Bucs were held to a 1-1 draw.

African Cup of Nations winner in 1996, Mark Williams, put the Phefeni Glamour Boys into the lead, but they could not stop 'Legs Of Thunder' from scoring again.

Sikhosana has disappeared from the domestic football scene and the last we heard the former Bafana Bafana striker was seen at a first (or is it second) division team, while Williams is now a soccer analyst with o local TV station.

In the same season the Buccaneers slaughtered the Amakhosi 4-1 in a Bob Save Super Bowl semifinal game.

Sikhosana netted a hat-trick and Helman 'Midnight Express' Mkhalele registered a late strike too.
