The Sea Robbers have started with their best possible eleven that comprises of Happy Jele, Andile Jali, Oupa Manyisa and Lennox Bacela among others
Orlando Pirates coach Roger de Sa was brave enough to reveal his starting eleven a day before their crucial Caf Champions League semi-final clash against Esperance on Saturday night.
As expected, Ayanda Gcaba got the nod ahead of Bheki Nzunga to complete the back four, and it remains to be seen if he will play the fullback or the centre-back role.
Happy Jele will captain the Buccaneers in the absence of Lucky Lekgwathi who was left out of the 18-man squad due to a lack of “match fitness”.
Pirates starting line-up: Meyiwa, Jele (C), Mahamutsa, Gcaba, Matlaba, Jali, Manyisa, Myeni, Segolela, Klate and Bacela.
