Cape Town - Orlando Pirates will look to improve their form in the Absa Premiership when they host University of Pretoria at Orlando Stadium.

Pirates’ first result of 2016 saw them held to a 1-1 home draw by Platinum Stars on January 9.

The Soweto giants have claimed five points from as many home matches this season.

The Buccaneers are placed 12th on the Absa Premiership log with 12 points from 11 matches.

University of Pretoria broke a nine-game winless streak with a 1-0 victory over Jomo Cosmos on January 9.

The Tshwane side has claimed three points from five away matches this season.

AmaTuks are placed 15th on the Absa Premiership log with nine points from 12 matches.

In head-to-head stats, Pirates and Tuks have met in six league matches since 2012/13.

The Buccaneers have two wins compared to one for AmaTuks, while three matches have been drawn.

Pirates are unbeaten at home against the University side, with one win and two draws from three matches.
