Two Changes For Pirates For Stellies Game

Orlando Pirates have made two changes to their team for their DStv Premiership match against Stellenbosch at the DC Stadium today.

Bongani Sam and Tshegofatso Mabasa are unavailable, and drop out of the match squad. They have been replaced by Paseka Mako and Gabadinho Mhango respectively.

Fortune Makaringe and Ntsikelelo Nyauza return from suspension, but the pair will start off the bench.

Stellenbosch have made four changes to the team that lost ten days ago to Chippa United, Lee Langeveldt, Granwald Scott, Junior Mendieta and Stanley Dimgba all returning.

Pirates are currently fourth, and while they are all but out of the title race, they are just one point behind third-placed Golden Arrows, and eight behind second-placed AmaZulu, and have a game in hand over both.

Stellenbosch are 12th and victory for them is equally important, as they look to avoid being pulled into any relegation battle.

Stellenbosch XI: Langeveldt, Macheke, Mthethwa, Van Heerden, Scott, Sinkala, Adams, Van Rooyen, Mendieta, Du Preez, Dimgba

Pirates XI: Sandilands, Mako, Hlatshwayo, Maela, Jooste, Mabaso, Zungu, Ndlovu, Dlamini, Hotto, Mhango
