Bidvest Wits will take on Orlando Pirates in a Round of 32 Nedbank Cup clash at Orlando Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Kick-off is at 15h00 CAT.

The two clubs have a rich history in the competition and squared off in the 2014 final which the Buccaneers won 3-1 at Moses Mabhida Stadium.

The Clever Boys will return to domestic action for the first time in three weeks after having their Absa Premiership clash against Black Leopards on Thursday evening called off due to inclement weather.

Pirates extended their winning run to five matches with a 2-1 win over Chippa United last weekend. Gabadinho Mhango scored a brace for the Buccaneers, but the former Wits forward will miss this weekend’s clash due to suspension.

Gavin Hunt’s men beat Pirates 4-3 in the most recent meeting between the two teams in September.
