Its Soweto derby again

Soweto giants will clash again tomorrow in their Absa Premiership match, with Orlando Pirates host their arch rivals Kaizer Chiefs at Orlando Stadium.
When these two locked horns earlier in the 2009/10 PSL season they played to a goalless draw in front of thousands of screaming fans, who all left the stadium disappointed and who will not want to see a similar result come Saturday.
The Amakhosi will certainly be the more confident of the two teams coming into this match following the fact that they were leading 1-0 in their midweek encounter against Mpumalanga Black Aces before the match was called off due to bad weather.
That game will now take place on Wednesday, March 24.
Pirates, on the other hand, had no such luck in their midweek encounter which saw them totally outplayed by Maritzburg United.
The Buccaneers defence was woeful and they ended up losing the game 2-1 after conceding two goals in the first half.
At present, two points and one place separate the two Soweto rivals on the league table.
Chiefs are in third place with 42 points while the Buccaneers are in fourth spot with 42 points. The Amakhosi do, however, have a game in hand.
The kick-off is at half past three in the afternoon.
