Orlando Pirates will be looking to do the league double over their cross-town rivals for the first time since the 2008/09 campaign. The Buccaneers will no doubt miss the presence of talismanic striker, Kermit Erasmus, and the massive influence he has on the side going forward as demonstrated by his goal and assist tally. In his absence the Sea Robbers will turn to Thamsanqa Gabuza in the hope that he can provide the focal point for their attacks.

Kaizer Chiefs on the other hand will be looking to stay in the title race by claiming all three points on offer. The Glamour Boys have struggled to find the back of the net with regularity this season and with top goalscorer, George Lebese, a doubt they will be hoping that Togolese marksman, Camaldine Abraw, can find his range and add to his goal tally.
