Starting XI: Arrows v Pirates

DStv Premiership

Teams: Golden Arrows v Orlando Pirates

Date: 02 February 2021

Venue: Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium

Orlando Pirates will be looking to close the gap on the chasing pack in the DStv Premiership when they visit Golden Arrows on Tuesday.

The match will get underway at 17h00.

Pirates kept their hopes of challenging for the title alive after beating rivals Kaizer Chiefs 2-1 on Saturday,  extending their unbeaten streak to four matches in the process.

Josef Zinnbauer's charges sit in fourth place on the log, three points behind SuperSport United and Swallows, who are both tied on 28 points.

On the other hand, after losing their first game of the season in a 4-2 hammering by Cape Town City, Abafana Bes'thende bounced back to winning ways with a 2-1 victory over Maritzburg United on Saturday.

Mandla Ncikazi's troops find themselves in sixth place, but they could leapfrog Pirates on goal difference if they get maximum points.

The sides met two weeks ago in the first-round clash as they played to a goalless draw at Orlando Stadium and they will be hoping to finally find the back of the net in this reverse fixture.

Here's how they line-up:

Arrows: 36. Mlungwana, 3. Lunga, 29. Sibisi, 31. Zuke, 28. M.Dube, 13. Mmodi, 23. L.Dube, 4. Makhubela, 6. Parusnath, 33. M.Gumede, 18. Mutizwa.

Subs: 32. N.Gumede, 2. Nkombelo, 8. Sabelo, 37. Ndlovu, 7. Mtshali, 17. Conco, 16. Phiri, 11. Sibiya.

Pirates: 31. Ofori, 4. Jele, 5. Nyauza, 23. Maela, 15. Makaringe, 16. Monare, 8. Ndlovu, 29. Mako, 34. Tshobeni, 11. Hotto, 3. Lorch

Subs: 40. Sandilands, 27. Dzvukamanja, 32. Mntambo, 26. Muwowo, 18. Dlamini, 17. Jooste, 14. Hlatshwayo, 7. Mhango, 6. Motshwari
