Starting XI: CT City v Pirates
Absa Premiership Starting XI: Cape Town City v Orlando Pirates 28 April 2018
Teams: Cape Town City v Orlando Pirates
Date: 28 April 2018
Venue: Cape Town City
Orlando Pirates will be looking to keep their slim Absa Premiership title hopes alive when they take on Cape Town City.
The Soweto giants moved to within four points of leaders Mamelodi Sundowns after they thumped Bidvest Wits 4-0 on Wednesday.
As a result, Pirates also secured qualification for next season's CAF Champions League after mathematically sewing up second spot.
However, the Buccaneers will need at least a draw today while also hoping Sundowns lose against Ajax Cape Town if the title race is to go down to the final round of the season.
City, meanwhile, stretched their winless in the league to four matches after they drew 1-1 with Polokwane City on Wednesday evening.
Benni McCarthy's men find themselves in sixth spot and are in danger of dropping out of the top eight if they fail to win.
When these two sides met earlier in the season, Thabo Qalinge's solitary strike secured a 1-0 win at Orlando Stadium.
Here's how they line up:
City: 32. Stephens, 2. Mkhize, 16. Johannes, 5. Dove, 12. Fielies, 23. Matsi, 26. Nodada, 10. Patosi, 7. Lakay, 21. Ralani, 31. Juma.
Subs: 1. Walters, 3. Mngonyama, 6. Seedat, 37. Kateregga, 30. Martin, 14. Akosah-Bempah, 20. Moseamedi.
