Starting XI: Pirates v Chiefs

MTN8 Semi-Final Second-Leg

Teams: Pirates v Chiefs

Date: 24 September 2013

Venue: Orlando Stadium

Orlando Pirates will be looking to finish off the job at home to Kaizer Chiefs in their MTN8 semi-final second leg clash on Tuesday afternoon.

The Sea Robbers come into the game with a 1-0 advantage after beating Amakhosi away from home in the first-leg encounter - as they continued their solid run against their rivals in the domestic tournament.

Pirates come into the game off of a hard-fought 0-0 draw with Al Ahly in the CAF Champions League - but the players would have been boosted by the fact that they made the semi-finals of the continental tournament.

Chiefs also come into the game on a winning note, having beaten Platinum Stars 2-1 in their last league outing - but it has been a patch of mixed form for Stuart Baxter's men.

The defending ABSA Premiership champions draw 0-0 away to Bloemfontein Celtic, beat Maritzburg United 2-0 and lost 3-1 to SuperSport United in the three league matches prior to their win over Dikwena.

Kermit Erasmus returns to the staring XI for Pirates after their CAF Champions League outing while Baxter has included Siyabonga Nkosi in his team.

This is how they line up:

Pirates: Senzo Meyiwa, Rooi Mahamutsa, Siyabonga Sangweni, Happy Jele, Patrick Phungwayo, Tlou Segolela, Oupa Manyisa, Daine Klate, Lehlogonolo Masalesa, Kermit Erasmus, Lennox Bacela.

Chiefs: Itumeleng Khune, Siboniso Gaxa, Tefu Mashamaite, Morgan Gould, Tsepo Masilela, Willard Katsande, Reneilwe Letsholonyane, Siphiwe Tshabalala, Bernard Parker, Siyabonga Nkosi, Knowledge Musona.
