Amakhosi are one point behind the Buccaneers, who are second on the PSL log with eight league games before the end of the season.
Steve Komphela's charges are unbeaten in 2018, but they face a Pirates side that has scored seven goals in their last two league matches.
Chiefs have been solid at the back with 12 clean sheets, but scoring goals remain their biggest challenge, while Micho Sreodojevic's men look deadly upfront with Justin Shonga oozing with confidence following his brace against Chippa United on Sunday afternoon.
