Squad & Team News


Steve Komphela will be hoping to lead Abafana Bes'thende to victory which would see his side move closer to the top eight teams.

The former Free State Stars and Kaizer Chiefs coach will be banking on Zimbabwe international Knox Mutizwa's scoring form.

The 25-year-old forward has hit the back of the net four times in his last six league matches including one against Chippa.

Probable Arrows line-up: Gumede, Lunga, Mzava, Bilankulu, Sibisi, Parusnath, Phiri, Ndwandwe, Venter, Lamola, Mutizwa.

Meanwhile, Pirates snapped their three-match winless run in the league when they thumped a hapless AmaZulu FC side 4-1 at home last weekend.

The Buccaneers are heading into this encounter placed third on the league standings - three points behind the leaders, Mamelodi Sundowns, who have a game in hand.

Milutin 'Micho' Sredojevic will be keen to mastermind a victory over Arrows which would take Bucs to the top of the league standings if the other results go their way.

The Serbian coach will look to Luvuyo Memela, who marked his return to the starting line-up with a goal against AmaZulu and the winger has the ability to inspire Pirates to a victory over Arrows.

Probable Pirates line-up: Sandilands, Mbekile, Maela, Munetsi, Ndengane, Nyatama, Motshwari, Memela, Lorch, Mulenga, Shonga.
