AmaTuks welcome Orlando Pirates at the Tuks stadium on the 26th of November in an Absa Premiership clash, Kick-off is at 19:30.

For the first time in eight years AmaTuks will be without Steve Barker after he resigned from his post as head coach and joined PSL side Amazulu Football Club. Samuel Troughton and Seloatse Mosala will take on the coaching reigns and steer the ship forward.

Sammy and Sly were in charge when AmaTuks took on Orlando Pirates at the Orlando stadium last season. The game ended with a narrow 1-0 win for Pirates. 

Morale is high in the AmaTuks camp after they came from two goals down to defeat Moroka Swallows 3-2 at the Dobsonville Stadium and register the first back to back wins this season. Orlando Pirates also head into this encounter in high spirits after dispatching Supersport United 2-1 over the weekend.

Orlando Pirates are placed 4th on the log with 17 points from 10 matches whilst AmaTuks are positioned 12th with 12 points having played one match more than their counterparts. The two teams have played each other four times with pirates winning two times and AmaTuks winning once with the other encounter ending in a stalemate.
