Orlando Pirates Form


Orlando Pirates are languishing in fifth position on the PSL table after 15 matches. They have only managed two victories in their last five league matches.

Pirates made a very good start to the season but since winning 3-0 at TTM, they have lost 2-0 at Black Leopards, drawn 0-0 at home to Golden Arrows and beaten Maritzburg United 1-0 away.

In their last match, Orlando Pirates could only draw 1-1 at home with TS Galaxy. Bongani Sam gave the Buccaneers an early lead but TS Galaxy were level by the 20th minute mark.

Orlando Pirates Injuries & Team News


Orlando Pirates will be without forwards Gabadinho Mhango, Tshegofatso Mhango and Zakhele Lepasa. Thembinkosi Lorch is likely to start as a false nine.

Defender, Innocent Maela is suspended for this match.

Kaizer Chiefs Form


Kaizer Chiefs had a miserable start to their season under new coach, Gavin Hunt. Fortunately Hunt has turned around their fortunes and currently they are placed seventh in the PSL.

The Amakhosi are unbeaten in their last five matches which includes three wins and two draws. It began with a 1-0 win at AmaZulu before beating Cape Town City 2-1 away.

Chiefs then defeated TTM 3-0 at home which was followed by successive draws. Their trip to Stellenbosch turned into a 0-0 draw and then Chiefs drew 1-1 at home to Baroka in their last match.

Baroka took the lead in the 53rd minute but Chiefs leveled 15 minutes from the end via an own goal.

Kaizer Chiefs Injuries & Team News


Kaizer Chiefs are missing their most influential attacking player in Khama Billiat to injury. Bernard Parker is another attacking player missing as he is suspended.

Other than that, Gavin Hunt will have a full squad available.
