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.

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.
