Starting XI: Pirates v Arrows
Teams: Orlando Pirates v Golden Arrows
Date: 24 August 2016
Venue: Orlando Stadium
Orlando Pirates are set to get their Absa Premiership season underway when they host Golden Arrows on Wednesday.
Coach Muhsin Ertugral leads the new-look Buccaneers as they aim to stage a challenge for the PSL title after a disappointing 2015/16 campaign which saw them finish in seventh position.
Ertugral has added a number of fresh faces to the Pirates ranks with Abbubaker Mobara, Riyad Norodien, Ayanda Nkosi, Jackson Mabokgwane, Justice Chabalala, and Bernard Morrison all set for debuts.
Meanwhile, Arrows will be hoping to pull off an upset to get their season off to a positive start under the guidance of Clinton Larsen.
Abafana Bes'thende missed out narrowly on a top-eight finish last term and will be eager to build early momentum as they target the top half.
Here's how they line up:
Pirates: 42 Ovono, 2 Gcaba, 33 Jele, 28 Sikhakhane, 8 Matlaba, 33 Gyimah, 20 Manyisa, 12 Morrison, 25 Rakhale, 5 Makola, 7 Ndoro
Arrows: 1 Mbaeva, 18 Nonyane, 20 Katjiukua, 5 Mzava, 21 Mngwengwe, 26 Phiri, 8 Cele, 11 Mahachi, 25 Sibiya, 17 Jooste, 41 Lamola
