Pirates & Stellenbosch Starting XIs Confirmed

Orlando Pirates and Stellenbosch have confirmed their starting line-ups for their DStv Premiership clash at Orlando Stadium this evening.

In what is the start of the second half of the season, Stellies will be aiming to do the double over the Soweto giants.

The Carling Knockout champions beat Pirates on their opening day of the season with a 1-0 win at a cold and wet Danie Craven with Antonio van Wyk scoring the only goal.

A win for the visitors could propel them from fifth place into third and above Pirates and Cape Town City – whilst the Buccaneers will be also vying for the top three spot.

Out of three clashes this season, Stellies have won two, with the latest being a 1-0 at Orlando Stadium in the Carling Knockout Cup, after the Buccaneers had won the first leg in Cape Town 2-1.

Here is how they line up:

Pirates XI: Buthelezi, Xoki, Ndah, Hotto, Makaringe, Timm, Ndlondlo, Maswanganyi, Lorch, Kimvuidi, Makgopa

Subs: Mpontshane, Sibisi, Maela, Baloni, Dlamini, Saleng, Mofokeng, Otladisa, Pule

Stellenbosch XI: Stephens, van Rooyen, Toure, Moloisane, Sibande, Nduli, Adams, Matcheke, Oura, Titus, Rayners.

Subs: Langeveldt, Mcaba, De Kock, Maga, Palace, Sekgota, De Jong, Van Wyk, Boji
