Starting XI: Pirates v Highlands

MTN8
 
Teams: Orlando Pirates v Highlands Park

Date: 17 August 2019

Venue: Orlando Stadium
 
Orlando Pirates will be looking to get back to winning ways when they host Highlands Park at Orlando Stadium in an MTN8 clash on Saturday.
 
The match gets underway at 18h00.
 
Pirates' preparation for the encounter was rocked after the club announced that head coach Milutin Sredojević had resigned. Rhulani Mokwena will take on the coaching duties and will be assisted by Fadlu Davids and  Franck Plaine.
 
The Buccaneers have had an up-and-down start to the season, winning their opening league encounter against Bloemfontein Celtic 3-1, before slipping up to Supersport United 3-0.
 
Between those two league encounters, Pirates were also involved in CAF Champions League action as they suffered a 1-0 defeat to Zambia's Green Eagles in the preliminary round last weekend.
 
The Lions of the North suffered an opening day 3-2 defeat to Kaizer Chiefs before drawing 1-1 with Maritzburg United.
 
During last season's Absa Premiership campaign, the sides drew 1-1 and 2-2 in their two meetings last season.
 
Here's how they line up:
 
Pirates: 30. Sandilands, 4. Jele, 27. Ndengane, 23. Maela, 6. Motshwari, 14. Nyatama, 34. Monyane, 45. Pule, 3. Lorch, 12. Shonga, 17. Mulenga.
 
Subs: 40. Mpontshane, 19. Chabalala, 37. Mbekile, Dlamini, 11. Memela, Makaringe, Mabasa.
 
Highlands: 42. Ngobeni, 10. Mokoena, 20. Ramoraka, 24. Rae, Mzava, 4. Makhaula, 40. Mahlangu, 43. Mbatha, 38. Shalulile, 14. Mvala, 7. Ndoro.
 
Subs: 1. Heugh, 12. Mogaila, 5. Fransman, Williams, 27. Jooste, 11. Nyembe, Munyai.
