Starting XI: Pirates v Galaxy

DStv Premiership

Teams: Orlando Pirates v TS Galaxy

Date: 26 January 2021

Venue: Orlando Stadium

Orlando Pirates will be looking to stay in touch with the leading pack in the DStv Premiership when they host TS Galaxy on Tuesday evening.

The match will get underway at 17h00.

The Buccaneers snapped a two-game winless run after edging Maritzburg United 1-0 on Saturday afternoon, with Deon Hotto getting the game's only goal.

Josef Zinnbauer's charges are in fifth spot on the table with 21 points, six points behind leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.

On the other hand, the Rockets will be well rested after not being in action over the weekend following a morale-boosting 3-0 win over Maritzburg United last Wednesday.

Owen Da Gama's first win in charge at Galaxy lifted them up to 13th on the table with 11 points, two points clear of the relegation zone with a game in hand.

Here's how they start:
