Pirates racked up a second straight league win when they defeated SuperSport United 3-1 at home on September 15, thanks to goals from Vincent Pule, Thembinkosi Lorch and Ben Motshwari.

City, on the other hand, suffered their second defeat of the season – and saw their winless run extended to four matches – when they were beaten 4-1 at home by Kaizer Chiefs on September 15.

In head-to-head stats, Pirates and City have met in four league matches since 2016/17. The teams have a dead-even record, with one win apiece, two draws and three goals both scored and conceded.

Last season the Buccaneers won their home match 1-0 in the first half of the campaign thanks to a goal from Thabo Qalinge, but the Citizens responded with a 1-0 win of their own in the return game with a strike from Ayanda Patosi.
