Currently the Buccaneers are placed fourth on the table with 26 points from 17 games, eight points adrift of third placed Bidvest Wits.

When the AmaZulu and Pirates met in their first league match of the 2014/15 season they played to a 1-1 draw after goals from Bongani Ndulula and Thabo Matlaba.

In head-to-head stats, AmaZulu and Pirates have met in 52 league matches since 1985. The Buccaneers have claimed 22 wins compared to 10 for Usuthu, while 20 matches have been drawn.
