Match Preview: Pirates vs Highlands Park: Bucs Out To Break Winless Run Against Highlands

The Buccaneers finished second in the league last season and have had good preseason preparation, as they go in search of a winning start.
Milutin Sredojevic’s charges have however been dealt a huge blow with news that the duo of Thabo Qalinge and Thembinkosi Lorch are nursing respective injuries and are expected to miss out.
Another player who is certain to miss out is new signing Abel Mabaso who is suspended after receiving a red card in his last match of last season while still on the books of Chippa United.
The Lions of the North, who are coached by former Pirates coach Owen da Gama, are not to be taken lightly after securing PSL promotion with an impressive 19-point gap.
Highlands will also be without inspirational attacker Mothobi Mvala who is also serving a two-match suspension.
The two teams have faced off twice before, which was during the 2016/17 season, but both matches ended in draws, which should set up a fierce tie come Saturday night.
Highlands held the Buccaneers to a 2-2 draw in Orlando before the second match ended in a 0-0 draw.
