The Buccaneers come into this clash winless in their last three Absa Premiership encounters, which includes two losses and a draw.

Kjell Jonevret's charges sit in 10th position at the moment, although they could surge into the top eight with a win.

Pirates will be without the services of Mpho Makola, who misses the clash through suspension.

Ajax, meanwhile, come into the encounter having won their last three matches which has boosted their top eight hopes.

The Urban Warriors currently occupy eighth spot in the standings and can maintain that spot with a win.
