Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs legend Doctor Khumalo will be a headline act when Amakhosi and Orlando Pirates legends face one another in the curtain-raiser for Saturday's Soweto derby.

The Glamour Boys legends will come with a strong squad which includes Brian Baloyi, Ace Khuse, Arthur Zwane, Patrick Mabedi and Cyril Nzama.

However, the Pirates team will also feature a strong selection namely, Naughty Mokoena, Steve Lekoelea, Ronnie Zondi and Jerry Sikhosana.

Both teams will have a 15-man squad available for the contest which gets underway at FNB Stadium.

The encounter is being billed as a match not to be missed due to the many memorable clashes some of the players involved had over the years.

Bucs' official Twitter account said of the match: "On Saturday, our legends will be rolling back the years as they run out onto the pitch against their old foes."

The action gets underway from 12:30 in Johannesburg.

Meanwhile the main event is scheduled for kick-off at 15:30.
