The Buccaneers recorded their second win of the season when they beat Black Leopards 2-1 in Polokwane before the international break, avoiding a third straight defeat in a match.
 
Milutin Sredojevic’s charges are lying fourth on the standings with seven points from five matches, but they come into the match without Thamsanqa Gabuza, who sent off in the win over Leopards.
 
Meanwhile, Kaitano Tembo’s men will be in high spirits after dumping Kaizer Chiefs out of the MTN8 Cup just before the FIFA break to reach the final for the second successive season.
 
SuperSport are also in good form in the league after they won their third match in the Absa Premiership by  dispatching Chippa United 2-1 in Tshwane in the last round of matches.
 
SuperSport got the better of the Buccaneers when they met in the MTN8 earlier this season, wining 4-3 on penalties after it ended 2-2 after 120 minutes.
 
The two sides could not be separated in the league last season playing to two goalless draws home and away.
