Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs resume their traditional rivalry at Orlando Stadium on Saturday seeking to settle old derby scores as well as pile pressure on Premier Soccer League log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.
It is a Soweto derby confrontation with a lot at stake as the hosts and fifth-placed Pirates bid for a first PSL title since 2012.
Improved Chiefs who are eighth on the log standings would be keen to build-up on their unbeaten five straight league games following a difficult start to the season.
Amakhosi’s resurgence is what makes Saturday’s encounter a potential stormy one in this contest to restore derby pride after they heavily lost to the Buccaneers in the MTN8 semi-finals earlier this season.
Four points separate the Soweto giants and a Chiefs win will see them come just a point behind their old foes and move nine points closer to the Brazilians who host Chippa United the following day.
Victory for Pirates will help them go seven points ahead of their Soweto rivals and five closer to Downs.
