Starting XI: Pirates v Stellenbosch

Telkom Knockout

Teams: Orlando Pirates v Stellenbosch

Date: 19 October 2019

Venue: Orlando Stadium

Last Telkom Knockout finalists Orlando Pirates embark on another cup journey when they welcome a rejuvenated Stellenbosch FC out to Orlando Stadium on Saturday evening.

The match is scheduled to get underway at 18h00.

The Buccaneers' last cup journey ended as soon as it started after a 1-0 loss to Highlands Park in the first round of the MTN8 on home soil earlier this season.

The inconsistency has carried over to the league campaign, where the Soweto giants have only registered two wins from their first seven matches.

It will not be easy for the Buccaneers this evening, as they come up against a Stellenbosch side who claimed their first win of the season before the international break.

Steve Barker's charges come into the encounter unbeaten in their last three encounters, which includes two draws and a win while they have also scored six goals during that period.

While this is Stellies' debut campaign in the Telkom Knockout, Pirates reached the final where they suffered a penalty shoot-out loss to Baroka.

Here's how they line up:

Pirates: 30. Sandilands, 4. Jele, 2. Nyauza, 29. Mako, 34. Monyane, Mntambo, 15. Makaringe, 3. Lorch, 45. Pule, 17. Mulenga, 16. Mabasa.

Subs: 1. Delle, 21. Ndengane, 20. Mlambo, 8. Ndlovu, 11. Memela, 18. Dlamini, 12. Shonga.

Stellenbosch: 35. Langeveldt, 15. Bergman, 3. Ndlovu, 20. Robertson, 4. De Goede, 42. Mobbie, 50. Zungu, 26. Motsogi, 10. Rayners, 7. Van Rooyen, 33. Afoakwa.
