It will be the second time that the two side’s lock horns in the league this season, and redemption will almost certainly be in the air for Matsatsantsa, who will look to exact revenge on their Johannesburg rivals after losing 3-1 to Bucs earlier in the season.
Meanwhile, Pirates know that victory is a must if they are to maintain the pace on log leaders Bidvest Wits.
Worrying though, is the fact that the Soweto giants are on a run of five games without a win in all competitions, and after falling to Esperance in the Caf Champions League last week, coach Milutin Sredojevic will hope to motivate his troops in order to leave Nelspruit with all three points.
