Johannesburg - Following a disappointing finish to 2015, Orlando Pirates will be looking to turn the tables when they face Platinum Stars this coming weekend.

The struggling Happy People will lock horns with fifth-placed Dikwena in an Absa premiership clash at the Orlando Stadium on Saturday.

Pirates will be looking to move up the table as they are still rooted near the relegation zone (13th) with only 11 points after 10 games, while the Tycoons will be all out in their attempt to get into the top three.

The Buccaneers, however, will be boosted by the return of midfielder Thandani Ntshumayelo, who missed their last clash against Mamelodi Sundowns last month due to suspension.

Saturday’s match will commence at 15:30.
