The young Buccaneers are looking to build a full head of steam after bagging their second straight victory – an emphatic 4-1 win at home to Golden Arrows. 

They are currently in third place in the standings, one point behind the table-topping Mamelodi Sundowns after winning five of their seven matches so far.

Two places below them are Maritzburg, who come into the fixture of the back of a 3-3 away to Baroka.

The Buccaneers won 3-0 in their last encounter, with Boitumelo Radiopane netting a brace before Simiso Bophela rounded the scoring in injury time.
