After a painful Soweto Derby loss to Kaizer Chiefs, Bucs are aiming at bouncing back away to Abafana Bes'thende in a PSL encounter

  • Siyabonga Mpontshane, Orlando Pirates, November 2021

    GOALKEEPER - Siyabonga Mpontshane

    Despite failing to keep a clean sheet in his last three PSL matches for the Buccaneers, he has been trusted in goal.

  • Abel Mabaso, Orlando Pirates, September 2021

    RIGHT-BACK - Abel Mabaso

    The versatile player produced a solid defensive display on his return to the right-back position against Chiefs. It is not a surprise seeing him in the starting XI ahead of Pule Mmodi.

  • Paseka Mako, Orlando Pirates, November 2021

    LEFT-BACK - Paseka Mako

    The hard-working full-back has been one of Pirates' best players thus far in the current season. He will hope to keep good form against Abafana Bes'thende.

  • Olisa Ndah, Orlando Pirates, November 2021

    CENTRE-BACK - Olisa Ndah

    The Nigeria international was arguably Pirates' best centre-back against Chiefs and he was unlucky to concede a late penalty.

  • Ntsikelelo Nyauza - Orlando Pirates

    CENTRAL DEFENDER - Ntsikelelo Nyauza

    The Pirates vice-captain Thulani Hlatshwayo was one of the reasons why Bucs lost to Chiefs as he made defensive mistakes and one of them led to a goal. He has been replaced by Nyauza.

  • Bandile Shandu, Orlando Pirates, August 2021

    CENTRAL MIDFIELDER - Bandile Shandu

    Despite overcoming his injury problems, the experienced Thabang Monare is out and Shandu will shield the Pirates defence.

  • Fortune Makaringe, Orlando Pirates, November 2021

    CENTRAL MIDFIELDER - Fortune Makaringe

    Makaringe will be eager to dominate the midfield battle and put Bucs in a postion to win the game.

  • Edgar Manaka, Marumo Gallants & Kabelo Dlamini, Orlando Pirates, August 2021

    ATTACKING MIDFIELDER - Collins Makgaka

    Despite his good form, Kabelo Dlamini paves way for Makgaka.

  • Tshegofatso Mabasa Orlando Pirates Deon Hotto

    LEFT FORWARD - Deon Hotto

    Terrence Dzvukamanja drops to the bench, with Hotto taking his place.

  • Linda Mntambo, Orlando Pirates & Keagan Dolly, Kaizer Chiefs, November 2021

    RIGHT FORWARD - Linda Mntambo

    The experienced attacker has now scored in three successive matches for the Buccaneers making him the most in-form Bucs player at the moment and he is expected to be a key player again.

  • Kwame Peprah, Orlando Pirates, September 2021

    CENTRE FORWARD - Peprah Kwame

    In the absence of 25-year-old Tshegofatso Mabasa, Kwame steps in to lead the attack.
