Sekhukhune & Starting XIs Pirates XI Confirmed

Sekhukhune United and Orlando Pirates have announced their starting line-ups for the DStv Premiership clash at New Peter Mokaba Stadium in evening.

High-flying Sekhukhune United will look to continue with their impressive run this evening after winning four league matches in a row.

Babina Noko might have been knocked out of the CAF Confederation Cup and were also knocked out of the Nedbank Cup by AmaZulu FC in the last 16 but Lehlohonolo Seema’s side are sitting sixth in the league table with 30 points.

Pirates have started the year like a house on fire, which saw them moving to the third place. The Bucs aim to return back to the CAF Champions League but they will need to collect three points in tonight’s game to keep their chances high.

Jose Riveiro’s side recently beat Motsepe Foundation Championship side Hungry Lions to book a place into the Nedbank Cup quarter-final and have 33 points in the league – the same as SuperSport United but goal difference favours them.

Sekhukhune United will be facing Pirates for the sixth time since gaining promotion from the Motsepe Foundation Championship. The Limpopo-based side only managed to win one and Pirates won three, with one match ending with a draw.

Here is how they line up:

Sekhukhune Utd XI: Sangare, Mobbie, Tiwani, Tshibwabwa, Cardoso, Mntambo, Mokwana, Mokotjo, Webber, Mkhize, Mncube

Subs: Mtsweni, Mkhabela, Ntiya-Ntiya, Rikhotso, Mahlangu, Mtshali, Carnell, Mokhele, Ohizu

Pirates XI: Chaine, Ndah, Sesane, Hotto, Lebitso, Timm, Mbatha, Saleng, Mofokeng, Dlamini, Mabasa

Subs: Buthelezi, Maela, Mthethwa, Monyane, Baloni, Kimvuidi, Ndlondlo, Kapinga, Lepasa
