Chippa United and Orlando Pirates will be seeking their first wins of the Absa Premiership season when they lock horns at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium tonight.
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.
