thumbnail Hello,

Pirates are boosted by the return of Andile Jali who walks straight into the starting line-up, as Masalesa is relegated to the bench

Orlando Pirates coach Roger de Sa has opted for the same players that did the job against Kaizer Chiefs in their midweek MTN 8 semi-final except for the inclusion of Andile Jali.

Jali returns from his shoulder injury to partner Manyisa in the midfield as Masalesa has to settle for a place on the bench, while Sifiso Myeni failed to make the squad due to a niggling injury.

Platinum Stars have started with their strongest possible line-up although Mogakolodi Ngele is not in the starting line-up, but the experience of Patrick Malokase should come handy against his former club.

Pirates starting line-up: Meyiwa, Mahamutsa, Jele, Phungwayo, Sangweni, Jali, Manyisa, Klate, Segolela, Erasmus and Bacela.

Platinum Stars starting line-up: Mpontshane, Ngwepe, Mere, Gumede, Mhlongo, Ng'ambi, Malokase, Sarr, Tshabalala, Mthembu and Msomi.
