Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs will look to add to Orlando Pirates’ woes when the teams meet for an Absa Premiership match at FNB Stadium.

Chiefs recorded their third league win of the season when they beat Black Aces 1-0 at home on October 27.

The Soweto side has claimed seven points from three home matches this season.

The Amakhosi are placed fourth on the Absa Premiership log with 14 points from eight matches.

Pirates suffered a second successive league loss (and their fourth defeat in seven such matches) when they went down 2-0 at home to Golden Arrows on October 28.

The Soweto side has claimed one point from three away matches this season.

The Buccaneers are placed 13th on the Absa Premiership log with five points from seven matches.

In head-to-head stats, Chiefs and Pirates have met in 59 league matches since 1985.

The Amakhosi have 24 wins compared to 12 for the Buccaneers, while 23 matches have been drawn.

Chiefs have won 13 of their 28 home matches against Pirates, suffering five defeats in the process.

Last season the Amakhosi took four points off Bucs, winning 2-0 away before playing out a goalless stalemate in the return game.

Four of the teams’ last six meetings have ended in draws.
