Giovanni Solinas defended his approach in his first Soweto Derby not so long ago, and he's now expected to come up with a different approach.
With this being the 165th Soweto Derby match between Chiefs and Pirates in 48 years, the significance of it is that it will be a Cup game where there has to be a winner on the day.
Chiefs boast an impressive record against Pirates in the Telkom Knockout Cup, but given their struggles in recent years coupled with the resurgence of Micho Sredojevic's team, football fans should expected nothing but fireworks.

Amakhosi head into the encounter in a better pyschological state than before with all their best players available for selection.
Previously, both Leonardo Castro and Khama Billiat had just returned from injury, while Lebogang Manyama was sidelined after surviving a car accident.
This time around, the three attackers are fit and ready to play, something which will ease the pressure on Solinas.
Only Joseph Molangoane and Wiseman Meyiwa will miss the encounter due to injuries.
Molangoane is still recovering form a broken leg, while Meyiwa is in hospital after being involved in a car accident two weeks ago.
Potential Chiefs XI: Khune, Mphahlele, Walusimbi, Ngezana, Cardoso, Katsande, Ntshangase, Zuma, Manyama, Billiat, Castro .
Meanwhile, Pirates have confirmed that Vincent Pule will undergo a late fitness test as he had struggling with a minor injury.
The left-footed player has been in scintillating form for the Buccaneers this season, and he even scored the winning goal against Amakhosi just less than a month ago.
Another player who is doubtful for the encounter is Innocent Maela, who will also have to pass a late fitness test to determine his readiness for match.
Sredojevic has also revealed that Augustine Mulenga and Justin Shonga are in the right state of mind to put their failure to qualify for the 2019 Afcon finals behind them.
Potential Pirates XI: Mpontshane, Munetsi, Maela, Jele, Mobara, Mlambo, Motshwari, Lorch, Pule, Shonga, Mulenga.
The two Soweto giants have met 164 times in the past with Chiefs recording 67 wins to Pirates' 40 while a whopping 52 matches ended in draws.
During that time, five other matches were played but eventually abondoned for various reasons.
Chiefs have scored 211 goals against Pirates, while conceding 174, but in recent seasons, the black and white half of Soweto has been dominant.
Pirates are unbeaten against Chiefs in the last 10 competitive matches, with Amakhosi's last win over their nemesis coming in December 2014.
Both teams have been strugggling to win trophies in recent seasons - Pirates have not won a major trophy since their Nedbank Cup triumph in 2014, while Chiefs last won a trophy in 2015.
