Horoya edge Platinum, leapfrog Pirates



Horoya moved up to second place in Caf Champions League Group B following a 2-0 win over FC Platinum at Stade du 28 Septembre in Conakry on Tuesday.

Ocansey Mandela and Yakubu Hudu found the back of the net for the Guinean giants who move two points clear of second-placed Orlando Pirates and a point behind defending champions Esperance de Tunis.

Defeat leaves the Zimbabwean champions on the cusp of elimination with the loss their third in succession. Platinum have yet to score a goal after four rounds of group stage fixtures.

Following a goalless first half, the hosts opened the scoring in the 58th minute through Mandela. Hudu teed up the Ghanaian who fired the home side ahead just short of the hour mark.

Provider turned scorer in the 78th minute as Hudu latched onto a pass from Sebe Baffour to double Horoya's lead and duly seal all three points.

Next up for Horoya is a trip to Rades to take on Esperance while Platinum travel to South Africa to face Orlando Pirates next month.
