AmaZulu will be hoping to begin their climb out of the relegation zone of the Absa Premiership by beating Orlando Pirates in a league match at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Wednesday night.

AmaZulu sit bottom of the log on nine points form 16 games, eight points adrift of the Platinum Stars in 15th place.

They will be hoping to pick up only their second league win of the season against the Buccaneers, but will not be coming into this game high on confidence after suffering a 2-1 defeat to Moroka Swallows in their last league match of 2014.

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.
