Cape Town - Orlando Pirates will look to get back to winning ways when they travel to take on Amazulu in an Absa Premiership encounter on Tuesday.

The Buccaneers have lost three consecutive games, including a 1-0 defeat against Highlands Park on Saturday that saw the Soweto giants dumped out of the MTN 8.

Pirates are also still reeling since their coach Milutin 'Micho' Sredojevic quit the club to take up a post with Egyptian giants Zamalek.

Caretaker coach Rulani Mokwena, who oversaw the defeat against Highlands Park, will again be in charge against Usuthu.

One of the positives for the Buccaneers from the weekend's loss was the return to action of Thembinkosi Lorch.

The Bafana international and last season's PSL football of the year made his first appearance of the season against the Lions of the North and looked lively.

AmaZulu, meanwhile, are also under pressure having lost their first two games of the new Absa Premiership campaign.

The hosts will look to veteran striker Lehlohonolo Majoro to get them goals and no doubt the player will be eager to get up and running as he prepares to face his former club.

Kick-off is at 19:30.
