The Buccaneers and Matsatsantsa will lock horns in the Telkom Knockout semi finals at the Orlando Stadium.

This will be their first game since the death of skipper and first choice shot stopper, Senzo Meyiwa, late last month.

Pirates defeated Ajax Cape Town 4-1 to book a place in the last four of the R4, 25m competition, while United eliminated Bidvest Wits with a 2-1 victory.

The Buccaneers will be looking to advance to their sixth consecutive cup final.

Kick-off is scheduled for 20:15 on Saturday.
