Absa Premiership giants Orlando Pirates are back in action with AmaZulu visiting Soweto this evening.
Coach Jozef Zinnbauer has an opportunity to mark a fourth-running victory and six games unbeaten. But the opposition is a deeply troubled AmaZulu side. Usuthu are rock bottom of the PSL table and will fight to the death to avoid a third-straight loss.
Pirates have made two changes. Abel Mabaso & Ntsikelelo Nyauza's suspensions have given Mthokozisi Dube and Bulelani Ndengane starts. On the opposite side, former Pirates striker Lehlogonolo Majoro has only managed a place on the bench.
A win for Bucs will see a jump beyond Bidvest Wits to fourth place while Usuthu’s victory will help the battling club out of relegation danger.
