The Buccaneers last lost to DStv Premiership leaders Mamelodi Sundowns in December 2021, but subsequently hit back with victories over Marumo Gallants and AmaZulu in the league before seeing off Usuthu in the Nedbank Cup Round of 32 and Algerian side JS Saoura in a CAF Confederation Cup group match.

They head in to Wednesday’s match in second place in the standings, a yawning 18 points behind Mamelodi Sundowns, but having played two fewer matches than the Brazilians.

Meanwhile, Golden Arrows are down in 10th place with a nine point gap between them and Orlando Pirates, who they drew 0-0 with in the first round of league matches last November.

Golden Arrows were eliminated from the Nedbank Cup in the Round of 32 by Tshakhuma FC on penalties last weekend, but were previously unbeaten in eight matches having drawn six and won two.

According to the Orlando Pirates website: “First team coaches Mandla Ncikazi and Fadlu Davids have had a near full-strength squad to pick from since Orlando Pirates returned to the field, and that looks likely to continue with no significant injuries reported since the last fixture.”

Good team news for Orlando Pirates

In more good news for supporters, the Buccaneers had to navigate their last league game without two key defenders Happy Jele and Paseka Mako who were both serving bans. However, the duo will be available for selection on Wednesday.
