Starting XI: Pirates v Cape Town City

Absa Premiership
 
Teams: Orlando Pirates v Cape Town City 
 
Date: 20 September 2016
 
Venue: Orlando Stadium
 
Orlando Pirates will look to maintain their perfect start to the Absa Premiership season when they host Cape Town City on Tuesday.
 
 
Muhsin Ertugral's charges come into the clash on the back of consecutive wins, having beaten Golden Arrows and Ajax Cape Town in their opening two games.
 
Ertugral has dropped defender Edwin Gyimah has been completely dropped from the match day squad, while Riyaad Norodien returns to the side.
 
Pirates are top of the league standings with six points, two clear of Bidvest Wits, Chippa United, and Platinum Stars, who are tied for second.
 
Meanwhile, Cape Town City are aiming to bounce back after losing their last PSL clash 2-0 at Golden Arrows last week. 
 
Coach Eric Tinkler will be facing the club he led last season, hoping to pull off an upset and claim the PSL newcomers' second league win.
 
 
Here's how they line up: 
 
Pirates: 16. Mhlongo, 33. Chabalala, 4. Jele, 5. Makola, 8. Matlaba, 45. Mobara, 20. Manyisa, 38. Motupa, 7. Ndoro, 31. Norodien, 18. Sarr
