Starting XI: Pirates v Baroka

Absa Premiership 
 
Teams: Orlando Pirates v Baroka FC
 
Date: 26 April 2017
 
Venue: Orlando Stadium
 
Orlando Pirates will be hoping for a return to winning ways in the Absa Premiership when they host relegation-threatened, Baroka FC.
 
The match is scheduled to get underway at 19h30.
 
The Buccaneers come into the encounter on the back of a 2-1 win in extra time over Bloemfontein Celtic in the Nedbank Cup.
 
While Kjell Jonevret's charges were held to a 0-0 draw by Highlands Park in their last Absa Premiership encounter. 
 
The Buccaneers will be without the services of Abbubaker Mobara tonight, as the player is serving a suspension.
 
Baroka, meanwhile, head into the clash on the back of a 3-1 loss to Maritzburg United in their last league outing.
 
Bakgaga find themselves at the foot of the table, although they could rise up to 14th with a win and Free State Stars lose to Platinum Stars.
 
 
Here's how they line up:
 
Pirates: 40. Mpontshane, 2. Gcaba, 4. Jele, 8. Matlaba, 21. Phungwayo, 18. Sarr, 6. Shitolo, 20. Manyisa, 25. Rakhale, 5. Makola, 7. Ndoro.
