Pirates V Chippa In Numbers

Absa Premiership Fixture – Orlando Pirates vs Chippa United
 
Date: 10 March 2015
 
Time: 19:30
 
Venue: Orlando Stadium
 
Soweto giants, Orlando Pirates will look to return to winning form when they host the struggling Chippa United at Orlando Stadium this evening. Bucs played to a second successive league draw when they were held to a 0-0 scoreline by Kaizer Chiefs in the Soweto Derby. The Buccaneers are now placed fourth on the Absa Premiership log with 37 points from 22 matches. The Chilli Boys are still winless in 2015, but will take heart from their impressive unbeaten record against Ezika Magebhula. The Port Elizabeth-based side boast a record of two wins and a draw from the trio of encounters between the two sides. When the teams met earlier this season, a solitary strike from David Zulu, now with Kaizer Chiefs, saw Chippa claim a 1-0 home win at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.
