DStv Premiership

Teams: Stellenbosch v Orlando Pirates

Date: 24 November 2021

Venue: Danie Craven Stadium

Time: 17h30

The Buccaneers have won only once in their last seven matches and returned from the international break with a goalless draw against Golden Arrows.

However, Pirates remain in seventh place, three points behind Kaizer Chiefs, Royal AM and SuperSport United, who are all tied on 18 points.

The Soweto giants will be without utility player Abel Mabaso as he's suspended due to the accumulation of yellow cards.

In contrast, Stellies are unbeaten since the start of the season and extended that streak to 11 matches after blowing away a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with AmaZulu over the weekend.

As a result, Steve Barker's sit second on the log, five points behind leaders Mamelodi Sundowns, although they have played an extra match.

The Western Cape side will also be without Devin Titus, who was sent off in the latter stages of the draw with Usuthu over the weekend.

The sides are already completing their duel for this season in the league after playing to a 2-2 draw in the opening match of the campaign.

Here's how they line up:

Stellenbosch: 17. Stephens, 24. Kwinika, 20. Robertson, 7. Van Rooyen, 8. Van Heerden, 5. Mthethwa, 27. Jabaar, 19. Sinkala, 9. Du Preez, Mendieta.

Subs: 32. Bombay, 23. Adams, 16. Johannes, 21. Isaacs, 10. Khunyedi, 4. De Goede,  3. Letsoenyo, 14. Msengi, 25. Moseamedi.

Pirates: 40. Mpontshane, 5. Nyauza, 49. Ndah, 26. Shandu, 29. Mako, 6. Motshwari, 15. Makaringe, 11. Hotto, 12. Makgaka, 27. Dzvukamanja, 46. Peprah

Subs: 30. Sandilands, 42. Radiopane, Mngonyama, 32. Mntambo, 23. Maela, 19. Sam, 18. Dlamini, 16. Monare, 9. Mabasa
