Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs have been forced into a late change to their Carling Black Label Cup starting line-up with the withdrawal through injury of goalkeeper Brilliant Khuzwayo.

Khuzwayo was injured in training on Thursday, the same day Itumeleng Khune reached an agreement to re-join the Glamour Boys.

On Friday, the event's organisers confirmed that the injured Khuzwayo will be replaced by Reyaad Pieterse in the prestigious fixture against Orlando Pirates. 

The 23-year-old Pieterse made his debut in the 2013/14 season and has already played in one Soweto Derby, keeping a clean sheet when Kaizer Chiefs beat Orlando Pirates 1-0 in November 2013. 

Injuries have affected both teams this year, but each has been able to put out a strong starting XI as voted for by their passionate fans.

Saturday's match at the FNB Stadium kicks off at 15:30.

Carling Black Label Cup starting line-ups:

Kaizer Chiefs XI: Reyaad Pieterse, Kgotso Moleko, Siboniso Gaxa, Siyanda Xulu, Tsepo Masilela, Simphiwe Tshabalala, Reneilwe Letsholonyane, George Maluleka, George Lebese, Bernard Parker, David Zulu

Orlando Pirates XIBrighton Mhlongo, Happy Jele, Tshepo Gumede, Siyabonga Sangweni, Patrick Phungwayo, Sifiso Myeni, Issa Sarr, Oupa Manyisa, Thabo Rakhale, Kermit Erasmus, Lehlohonolo Majoro
