The Chilli Boys started the campaign with defeat after going 2-0 to Steve Komphela's Bloemfontein Celtic in the Free State over the weekend.

Pirates, meanwhile, had to settle for a point after being held to a 1-1 draw by newly-promoted Highlands Park on Saturday night.

As a result, Chippa find themselves in 12th position while the Buccaneers occupy ninth spot heading into tonight's clash. 

There could be a few reunions on the cards tonight, with Mark Mayambela, Thamsanqa Sangweni and Daine Klate facing their former employers.

Pirates enjoyed the league-double over Chippa last season, as they won 4-2 in Port Elizabeth before recording a 1-0 win at Orlando Stadium.
