Akpeyi Debuts For Kaizer Chiefs In  Home Draw Vs Orlando Pirates

Super Eagles goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi made his debut for Kaizer Chiefs who were held to a 1-1 draw by Orlando Pirates in the Soweto derby on Saturday at the FNB Stadium, Johannesburg, Completesporrts.com reports.

Akpeyi only linked up with the Amakhosi last week for an 18-month deal from fellow ABSA Premier League club, Chippa United.

The former Warri Wolves goalkeeper put up a decent showing in the encounter watched by a packed crowd inside the Soccer City.

Pirates equalised 10 minutes from time through Thembinkosi Lorch who beat the offside trap to fire the ball home.

Chiefs who are now without a win in their last two league games occupy fifth position in the table with 28 points from 20 games.
