Since Zinnbauer took over from Rhulani Mokwena, Pirates have won four of their last five league encounters - the last of which was a 3-1 victory over Highlands Park.

One key aspects to the impressive start under the German is he form of Gabadinho Mhango, who leads the Absa Premiership golden boot race with 12 goals.

However, Pirates will be without the services of Ntsikilelo Nyauza and Abel Mabaso through suspension after the duo picked up their fourth booking of the season.

At the other end, AmaZulu head into the encounter winless in their last four matches, which includes three losses and a draw.

Usuthu have since dropped to the bottom of the league standings, but a win could see the side rise up the standings.

The Durban outfit can take comfort in the fact that they held the Buccaneers to a goalless draw earlier in the season.

Here's how they line up:

Pirates: 30. Sandilands, 27. Ndengane, 4. Jele, 19. Sam, 28. Dube, 6. Motshwari, 15. Makaringe, 45. Pule, 3. Lorch, 11. Memela, 7. Mhango.

Subs: 1. Delle, 8. Ndlovu, 29. Mako, 32. Mntambo, 34. Monyane, 17. Mulenga, 16. Mabasa.

AmaZulu: 28. Mbatha, 33. Darpoh, 29. Mabiliso, 18. Booysen, 27. Xoki, 6. Ncube, 10. Sithebe, 34. Maduna, 2. Magubane, 31. Lacny, 7. Ntuli.

Subs: 43. Boshoff, 36. Khumalo, 4. Morton, 50. Vilakazi, 19. Chawaphiwa, 26. Magaqa, 20. Majoro.
