Cape Town - Orlando Pirates will hope to get back on the
winning trail when they host in-form Maritzburg United in an Absa Premiership
clash on Tuesday.
The Buccaneers will have to pick themselves up after losing
in the Soweto derby on Saturday with the players also having a day less to
recover than their opponents, who played on Friday.
Pirates interim head coach Rhulani Mokwena is still a man
under pressure but will take heart from their performance against Amakhosi, who
sit on top of the table.
Mokwena will take confidence from the fact that his team
still created chances even when they went down to 10-men against Chiefs after a
red card to Mthokozisi Dube.
Dube will, therefore, miss the clash against the Team of
Choice because of his transgression on the weekend.
Maritzburg made it five consecutive games where they have
taken positive results as they knocked out Highlands Park on penalties in the
Telkom Cup on Friday.
In-between two cup wins, Eric Tinkler's charges have also
grind out three successive 1-0 victories in the league that has shot them up
The game at the Orlando Stadium will kick off at the 19:30.
