The Buccaneers have only played three league fixtures this season and their only domestic commitment this month will be a Telkom Knockout semi-final against SuperSport United on November 23rd.

If Pirates win the Caf Champions League, fixtures will need to be postponed once again, as the Buccaneers will take part in the Club World Cup between the 11th and the 21st of December. 

The PSL has yet to name dates for the eight postponed fixtures, but the matches will only take place after the Buccaneer's Caf Champions League commitments cease.

Ahead of the final, Roger de Sa has confirmed that Sifiso Myeni will play against Al Ahly on Saturday, despite struggling with a slight knee injury which saw him only start on the bench during the Soweto Derby.

Myeni made an appearance in the 54th minute against Chiefs, during the 1-1 Soweto Derby draw this weekend, which was only Pirates' third PSL fixture of the season.
