Orlando Pirates can move up to fourth place in the DStv Premiership with a win over Baroka this evening – here is how the two side’s line up at the Orlando Stadium.

The kick-off has been delayed to 20:00 after Baroka found themselves stuck in traffic due to apparent service delivery protests.

Baroka comes into the game in dire need of points as they sit in 15th place with eight points after 11 games played this season – with their form leading Matsimela Thoka being demoted to the DStv Diski Challenge squad and being replaced by Kgoloko Thobejane.

His first game in charge saw Baroka lose 3-2 at the hands of Golden Arrows but ahead of the Pirates showdown he believes they can get a result with the game being ’11 versus 11′.

“Our next match is against Pirates and if you want to be the best, you must beat the best,” he said in the build-up to the game.

However, Pirates haven’t necessarily been at their best in this season – but their 3-0 victory over Stellenbosch followed by the 2-0 win over LPRC Oilers in the CAF Confederation Cup will have given the squad a major boost in confidence going into tonight’s clash.

The Soweto giants welcome back Abel Mabaso who served a one-match suspension against Stellies and will be mindful of the fact that they have never lost to Bakgaga since they gained promotion to the top-flight.

Pirates line-up: Mpontshane, Nyauza, Ndah, Shandu, Mako, Motshwari, Makaringe, Hotto, Makgaka, Mntambo, Peprah.

Subs: Sithole, Radiopane, Mngonyama, Dzvukamanja, Maela, Sam, Dlamini, Monare, Mabasa.

Baroka line-up: Masuluke, Farmer, Shozi, Makume, Masiya, Dlala, Sithole, Bobete, Mgaga, Makgopa, Monama.

Subs: Chipezeze, Seema, Sibiya, Mokhabi, Goldstone, Nikitaridis, Ngubane, Ndhlovu.
