Pirates & Richards Bay Starting XIs Announced

Orlando Pirates and Richards Bay have announced their starting line-ups for this evening’s DStv Premiership clash at Orlando Stadium.

Pirates’ quest to qualify for the CAF Champions League continues this evening when they welcome relegation-threatened Richards Bay.

Buccaneers are in a good run of form having won all their last seven matches and could overtake second-placed Stellenbotsch FC who lost earlier on Saturday.

Jose Riveiro will aim to make the eighth win on the throat and to move back into second place.

Bay come to this game under a lot of pressure as Cape Town Spurs closed the gap to five points with two games to go. But a win for Bay tonight would see the Urban Warriors getting relegated automatically.

These two sides faced each other four times in all competitions and three of those games ended goalless, while Pirates won the other one by 2-0 away from home.

Here’s how they line up:

Pirates XI: Chaine, Maela, Xoki, Ndah, Monyane, Timm, Ndlondlo, Maswanganyi, Dlamini, Mofokeng, Mabasa

Subs: Buthelezi, Sesane, Sibisi, Baloni, Makhaula, Kapinga, Pule, Otladisa, Makgopa

R Bay XI: Magoola, Mabuya, Ndaba, Mthethwa, Mcineka, Dlamini, Mthembu, Barns, Myaba, Mhlongo, Ntsundwana

Subs: Jacobs, Mabua, Makhubela, Figareido, Dube, Gumede, Mbuthuma, Komane, Mohlamme
