Pirates & Leopards Line-Ups Announced

Orlando Pirates have a chance to move into fourth spot when they face bottom-placed Black Leopards today – here is how the two sides line up.

The Buccaneers enter the game on the back of a four-game winless run, losing their last two matches in all competitions. 

However, Josef Zinnbauer’s men could still climb into third spot on the DStv Premiership log if they would win their two games in hand over Golden Arrows.

Lebese No Longer At TTM?

Leopards, meanwhile, need a victory to keep their slim chances of staying in the Premiership alive.

Pirates starting XI:

Sandilands, Hlatshwayo, Maela, Jooste, Sam, Mabaso, Ndlovu, Zungu, Hotto, Dlamini, Mabasa

Lehlohonolo Seema’s side beat Pirates 1-0 in the reverse fixture in January but have lost their last five trips to Pirates. Their recent 2-1 victory at TTM ended an unbeaten run of nine matches.

Leopards starting XI:

Mendes, Sampson, Mashoene, Masia, Gyimah, Makgetlwa, Mthethwa, Ramagalela (c), Mathenjwa, Karuru, Kabwe

The game kicks off at 17:00 at Orlando Stadium.
