Starting XI: Pirates v Arrows

DStv Premiership

Teams: Orlando Pirates v Golden Arrows

Date: 20 January 2021

Venue: Orlando Stadium

Orlando Pirates will look to become the first to side to defeat Golden Arrows in the DStv Premiership this season when the pair lock horns on Wednesday evening.

The match will get underway at 17h00.

After defeating Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila 3-0 last seven days ago, Pirates failed to gather momentum as they slumped to a shock 2-0 defeat to Black Leopards on Sunday afternoon.

As a result, they lost ground with the title-chasing pack as they dropped down to fifth on the table with 17 points from 11 matches, nine points behind leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.

Arrows, on the other hand are still enjoying a dream start to the season as they recently claimed back-to-back victories over Chippa United and TTM. As a result, Mandla Ncikazi's charges are one place and one point ahead of the Buccaneers on the log with a game in hand.

The meetings between the sides last season could not produce any goals, as they played to two goalless stalemates.

Here's how they line up:

Pirates: 31. Ofori, 4. Jele, 14. Hlatshwayo, 5. Nyauza, 19. Sam, 6. Motshwari, 15. Makaringe, 16. Monare, 3. Lorch, 45. Pule, 27. Dzvukamanja.

Subs: 30. Sandilands, 34. Tshobeni, 32, Mntambo, 23. Maela, 18. Dlamini, 17. Jooste, 11. Hotto, 8. Ndlovu, 7. Mhango

Arrows: 36. Mlungwana, 3. Lunga, 5. Shitolo, 29. Sibisi, 28. M.Dube, 13. Mmodi, 13. Ndwandwe, 4. Makhubela, 6. Parusnath, 17. Conco, 18. Mutizwa.

Subs: 32. N.Gumede, 2. Nkombelo, 8. Sabelo, 37. Ndlovu, 23. L. Dube,  33. M.Gumede, 7. Mtshali
