The Buccaneers will be visiting the Urban Warriors in Cape Town on Tuesday next week for their second PSL match of the season. 

Having lost and exited the MTN8 after conceding twice in their 2-1 defeat to Bidvest Wits in their previous game, Pirates are expected to make a few adjustments to their line-up for Tuesday's encounter.

Felipe Ovono, who has conceded some questionable goals in the two games he has started for Bucs so far this season, is expected to lose his place in the starting XI.

According to sources, the Equatorial Guinea shot-stopper, who was put on Pirates' transfer list at the end of last season, could make way for one of the three other goalkeepers on the club's books.

Last season's No. 1, Brighton Mhlongo, as well as Jackson Mabokgwane and Siyabonga Mpontshane, are all waiting for their chance to play under coach Muhsin Ertugral. 

Bucs will be attempting to add more points to their tally to remain at the top of the Absa Premiership log.

Should they feature, Bucs' former Ajax duo of Abbubaker Mobara and Riyaad Norodien will be expected to play a huge role for Ertugral's side against their former teammates from the Mother City.
