The Soweto giants extended their unbeaten run to six matches in the league with a 1-0 victory over defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns on Wednesday night.

The win did come at a cost though, as Vincent Pule picked up his fourth yellow card of the season and is suspended for tonight's encounter.

Even without Pule, Pirates still boast the league's top scorer in their ranks after Gabadinho Mhango bagged his 11th goal of the season against Sundowns.

Highlands, meanwhile, are out to boost their pride after suffering a 3-0 defeat to Kaizer Chiefs last week and a 4-1 loss to Stellenbosch over the weekend.

The Lions of the North have a suspension of their own to deal with, as goalkeeper Marlon Huegh misses out this evening.
