The Buccaneers head into the encounter on the back of a 1-1 draw with Baroka FC, with Issa Sarr netting an equaliser in second-half stoppage time.

Pirates find themselves in ninth spot in the Absa Premiership table, although victory will see them remain there.

Chippa, meanwhile, come into this clash winless in their last 10 league matches, and the club have since put Dan Malesela on 'special leave'.
