Orlando Pirates coach Josef Zinnbauer announces potent starting line-up against Kaizer Chiefs
Orlando Pirates coach Josef Zinnbauer made three changes to his debut Soweto derby line-up against Kaizer Chiefs at the FNB Stadium on Saturday.
Zinnbauer brought back right back Mthokozisi Dube and two central midfielders in Ben Motshwari and Fortune Makaringe in the place of Thabiso Monyane, Siphesihle Ndlovu and Linda Mntambo, who all played when the Buccaneers won their six successive league match against Black Leopards (1-0) in Thohoyandou two weeks ago.
The German coach is hoping his team will reverse the first round 3-2 defeat against Chiefs and move closer to the top of the Absa Premiership table where Chiefs are currently sitting six points ahead of the third-placed Buccaneers.
