Starting XI: Orlando Pirates v Maritzburg United

Telkom Knockout - Quarter-Finals
 
Teams: Orlando Pirates v Maritzburg United
 
Date: 24 October 2015
 
Venue: Orlando Stadium
 
Orlando Pirates will be hoping their CAF Confederations Cup form comes through when they host Maritzburg United in the Telkom Knockout quarter-finals on Saturday.
 
Eric Tinkler's charges have been in abysmal form in the Absa Premiership thus far, making their worst start to a season for the last 20 years with only one win from six games.
 
However, they have performed well in Africa, making their way to the Confederations Cup final, and it's that kind of form they will be aiming to replicate in the TKO.
 
Meanwhile, Maritzburg have made an even worse start to their league campaign, losing six consecutive games and occupying the bottom spot in the standings.
 
However, the Team of Choice beat Jomo Cosmos 2-1 to reach the last eight of the Telkom Knockout and will be hoping their PSL form doesn't spill over into their cup campaign.
 
Here's how they line up: 
 
Pirates: Mpontshane, Sangweni, Gcaba, Jele, Matlaba, Sarr, Mugerwa, Mvelase, Makola, Erasmus, Gabuza
 
Maritzburg: Vries, Banda, Teyise, De Jongh, Mngonyama, Mekoa M,  Zulu, Paintsil, Hartog, Lentjies, Nene
