AmaZulu are preparing to host Orlando Pirates in an Absa Premiership match at the King Zwelithini Stadium on Sunday.

Pirates will look to get back to scoring goals for the team to beat AmaZulu, following a disappointing 0-0 draw for Milutin Sredojevic’s team against SuperSport United on Wednesday.

Having scored in all of the five matches they played prior to Wednesday, Bucs were left disappointed after their goalless draw against Matsatsantsa at the Mbombela Stadium.
