Gallants & Pirates Starting XIs Announced

Orlando Pirates and Marumo Gallants have announced their starting XIs for today’s DStv Premiership clash.

Gallants lost their league opener 2-0 to Baroka, while Pirates drew 2-2 with Stellenbosch after Ntsikelelo Nyauza received a first-half red card.

Last season, Pirates collected a 3-0 win in their away match at Gallants (then Tshakuma), while drawing the reverse fixture 0-0.

Pirates will once again be guided by coaching duo Fadlu Davids and Mandla Ncikazi after Josef Zinnbauer resigned as head coach last week. Vincent Pule and Nkanyiso Zungu replace Tebogo Tlolane and the suspended Ntsikelelo Nyauza.

Gallants, meanwhile, are giving their new Ivorian striker Side Junior Dion his DStv Premiership debut.

Here is how they line up:

Gallants XI: Arubi, Hlatshwayo, Ravhuhali, Nkili, Nonyane, Ngema, Ndlondlo, Dion, Mnyamane, Manaka, Mvelase.

Pirates XI: Ofori, Jele, Hlatshwayo, Shandu, Hotto, Mabaso, Mosele, Zungu, Pule, Dlamini, Mhango.
