Orlando Pirates vs Supersport United: PSL live scores

It’s an unusually early PSL kick-off as Orlando Pirates and Supersport United square off at Emirates Airline Park on Saturday at 13:30.

The Buccaneers are out of the title race and square off against a side still in it, mathematically, in what will be a grudge match.

This is after the reverse fixture ended in embarrassment for the Soweto giants, who suffered what remains their heaviest defeat of the season, going down 3-0 at Mbombela Stadium last August.

Team news 

Orlando Pirates have been boosted by the return of Zambian striker Justin Shonga, whose suspension has been lifted by the club.

His availability could help in an area which has been a problem for the Bucs – converting chances into goals.

Pirates have found the net just once since the PSL restart, but assistant coach Fadlu Davids is hopeful that they can rediscover their form.

“We know SuperSport is really strong in terms of their transition play. They really are (an) organised unit especially in zone two block. But it’s not so much about SuperSport. We know the game brings a lot of goals. It’s about us getting back to ourselves, us getting back to the Pirates way, us getting back to believing in the way we play.”
