Starting XI: Wits v Pirates

Absa Premiership
 
Teams: Bidvest Wits v Orlando Pirates 
 
Date: 04 May 2017
 
Venue: Bidvest Stadium
 
Orlando Pirates will be looking to derail Bidvest Wits' title hopes when the two sides lock horns this evening.
 
 
The match is scheduled to get underway at 19h30.
The Clever Boys come into the encounter on a high, after they recorded a 1-0 win over Mamelodi Sundowns on Monday evening.
 
Gavin Hunt will be without the services Daine Klate and Granwald Scott, with the latter being sent off against Sundowns, while the former picked up his fourth booking of the season.
 
Pirates also come into the counter with confidence, after they recorded a 2-1 win over Chippa United over the weekend.
 
Kjell Jonevret's charges currently occupy eight spot in the Absa Premiership standings and can move three points clear on ninth place Golden Arrows.
 
When these two sides met earlier in the campaign, a brace from Gabadinho Mhango secured a 2-1 win for the Clever Boys.
 
 
Here's how they line up:
 
Wits: 16. Josephs, 3. Hlatshwayo, 4. Khumalo, 8. Monare, 13. Hlanti, 17. Mhango, 23. Myeni, 27. Mahlambi, 30. Motshwari, 33. Frosler, 41. Ntshangase.
 
Pirates: 40. Mpontshane, 8. Matlaba, 4. Jele, 2. Gcaba, 21. Phungwayo, 18. Sarr, 45. Mobara, 20. Manyisa, 25. Rakhale, 5. Makola, 31. Gabuza.
