Pirates are currently second on the log behind Bidvest Wits. They are trailing the Students by one point and a win against Usuthtu will see them move to the summit of the log standings.
Usuthu will also be desperate to restart their league campaign, after they were dealt a heavy blow by the PSL’s disciplinary committee, which deducted six points from their tally, banishing them to the bottom of the log.
This was part of a sanction imposed on them for unlawfully terminating Namibian player Phineas Nambandi’s back in 2014.
