Orlando Pirates will be hoping for a change of fortunes when they hosts Golden Arrows in the Absa Premiership this evening.

View The PSL Table

The past two weeks for the Buccaneers have not been fruitful, as they have been dumped out of the MTN8 and CAF Champions League.

The Soweto giants last tasted victory on the opening day of the league season against Bloemfontein Celtic, but have failed to win the next five games.

As a result, Pirates find themselves in 11th position, six spots behind Arrows who returned to winning ways with a 2-1 win over Chippa United this past weekend.

Steve Komphela's men were desperate for the win after suffering an embarrassing 5-0 defeat to Celtic a week earlier.

The Buccaneers will take positives from the fact they have not lost to Arrows since the 2016/2017 season.

Here's how they line up:
 
Pirates: 30. Sandilands, 4. Jele, 23. Maela, 2. Nyauza, 8. Ndlovu, 14. Nyatama, 20. Mlambo, 15. Makaringe, 18. Dlamini, 17. Mulenga, 10. Mhango.
