Nedbank Cup

Teams: Golden Arrows v Orlando Pirates

Date: 21 May 2017

Venue: Princess Magogo Stadium

Orlando Pirates and Golden Arrows will be vying for a spot in the Nedbank Cup final when they lock horns this afternoon.

The match is scheduled to get underway at 15h00.

The Buccaneers booked their spot in the semi-final after defeating Bloemfontein Celtic 2-1 in extra time in their quarterfinal tie.

However, Pirates have struggled to claims victories in the league since that win over Celtic in the cup, as they have recorded just one win in their last six matches.

Arrows, meanwhile, secured their spot in the final as Musa Bilankulu's first-half header clinched a 1-0 win over Platinum Stars.

Clinton Larsen's charges come into the encounter with a similar record to Pirates, having only claimed one win in their last matches.

When these sides met in the league earlier this season, Pirates recorded a 3-1 win over Arrows at the Orlando Stadium with Tendai Ndoro scoring a hat-trick.

Here's how they line up:

Arrows: 32. Gumede. 38. Dlamini, 20. Mathiane, 5. Mzava, 13. Mthiyane, 28. Bilankulu, 17. Jooste, 25. Sibiya, 11. Mahachi, 27. Magubane, 19. Mutizwa.

.Pirates: 16. Mabokgwane, 45. Mobara, 4. Jele, 8. Matlaba, 36. Van Heerden, 18. Sarr, 5. Makola, 20. Manyisa, 25. Rakhale, 35. Wome, 31. Gabuza.
