Cape Town - Orlando Pirates will have little time to lick their wounds
after bombing out of the Telkom Knockout Cup final against Baroka when they face Free State Stars on Tuesday evening in an Absa Premiership clash.
Kick-off is at 19:30.
The Buccaneers, currently in first place (24
points) albeit having played two matches more than second placed Wits, will be
looking to continue on their positive start to the league campaign by claiming
the scalp of an Ea Lla Koto side that currently sits in 11th place - three
points above the drop.
However, despite their slow start to the season the Free
State based outfit have proven to be a tough side to beat at home.
According to the official Buccaneers website, Stars have
only lost twice in their last seven home league games – losing only to
SuperSport United and Kaizer Chiefs.
Their home record argument is further enhanced by the fact
that the Buccaneers have failed to register a league win in Free State in over seven years.
The last time coming via a 2-0 win with goals courtesy of
Tlou Segolela and Andile Jali.
