PSL

Starting XI: Pirates v P City

ABSA Premiership

Teams: Pirates v P City

Date: 18 September 2013

Venue: Orlando Stadium

Orlando Pirates will be looking to kick their ABSA Premiership campaign into high gear when they host basement dwellers Polokwane City on Wednesday night.

City have been the whipping boys so far this campaign, having not managed a single point from their opening four matches - a run that saw coach Duncan Lechesa sacked.

Pirates rest a place higher than their opponents, but have played just a single league match this season - where they lost to high-flying AmaZulu.

Due to their CAF Champions League engagements, as well as international breaks, the Buccaneers will be hoping to start their climb towards the top part of the table.

They will come into the encounter needing a result, following he disappointment of their loss away to AC Leopards in the Champions League.

This will be the first competitive fixture between the two sides, so there is not history to draw upon ahead of the game.

This is how they line up:

Pirates: Senzo Meyiwa, Rooi Mahamutsa, Siyabonga Sangweni, Happy Jele, Patrick Phungwayo, Aubrey Ngoma, Andile Jali, Oupa Manyisa, Tlou Segolela, Kermit Erasmus, Thamsanqa Gabuza.

Polokwane City: Modiri Marumo, Lawrence Molekwane, Thapelo Tshilo, Million Mkhabela, Kabelo Gervas Lichaba, Sphesihle Nzimande, Maxwell Molala, Moffat Mdluli, Mothusi Gopane, Essau Kanyenda, Thobani Mncwango.
