Starting XI: AmaZulu v Pirates, Lorch Back In the Squad

Benni McCarthy's AmaZulu will be looking to end their Orlando Pirates hoodoo when the Buccaneers make the trip to Kings Park Stadium in the DStv Premiership on Wednesday.

DStv Premiership

Teams: AmaZulu v Orlando Pirates

Date: 08 December 2021

Venue: Jonsson Kings Park Stadium

Time: 17h30

Usuthu's last victory over Pirates came all the way back in 2013 and after four straight draws in the DStv Premiership, McCarthy's men will be desperate to return to winning ways.

Pirates, meanwhile, head into Wednesday's clash coming off the back of a goalless draw with Baroka at Orlando Stadium last Thursday.

McCarthy's charges are unbeaten in their last six Premiership fixtures, with their most recent league victory coming against Cape Town City in a 2-0 win.

The Soweto giants have confirmed that both Happy Jele and Thembinkosi Lorch have returned to full training after long injury lay-offs.

Here's how they line up:

AmaZulu: 44. Mothwa, 17. Gumede, 4. Malepe, 27. Xoki, 18. Moleko, 45. Buchanan, 10. Sithebe, 19. Moremi, 11. Memela, 9. Mthembu, 14. De Jong.

Subs: 43. Boshoff, 22. Khumalo, 24. Masilela, 5. Sikhakhane, 13. Zulu, 25. Mzava, 37. Shange, 20. Majoro, 7. Ntuli.

Pirates: 30. Mpontshane, 4. Nyauza, 49. Ndah, 26. Shandu, 29. Mako, 6. Motshwari, 42. Mabaso, 15. Makaringe, 11. Hotto, 12. Makgaka, 46. Peprah

Subs: 40. Sandilands, 34. Mngonyama, 28. Makhubela, 23. Maela, 19. Sam, 18. Dlamini, 16. Monare, 9. Mabasa, 3. Lorch
