The South African Premier Soccer League is back in action with another round of matches this weekend as Orlando Pirates take on SuperSport United on Wednesday. Both teams have been inconsistent in recent weeks and will want to win this game.

Orlando Pirates are in fourth place in the South African Premier Division and have been impressive so far. The Buccaneers eased past Royal Leopards by a 3-0 margin in their previous game and will want to make their mark in this fixture.

SuperSport United, on the other hand, are in seventh place in the league table at the moment and have been inconsistent this season. The away side edged Platinum City Rovers to a narrow 1-0 victory last week and will need to step up in this match.
