Jose Riveiro and Cavin Johnson have revealed their starting lineup for the highly-anticipated Soweto derby clash between Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs at the FNB Stadium on Saturday.

The Buccaneers will come into this fixture after they returned to winning ways in the league after they clinched a narrow 1-0 win over Sekhukhune thanks to a 79th minute goal from Thabiso Monyane at the Orlando Stadium in Soweto.

Meanwhile, Chiefs also bounced back and returned to winning ways in the DStv Premiership following their thrilling 3-2 victory over the Urban Warriors at the FNB Stadium when Edson Castillo, Ranga Chivaviro and Christian Basomboli cancelled out goals by Luvuyo Phewa and Luke Baartman.

The win saw Pirates move up to ninth place on the table with 12 points from nine games, while Amakhosi climbed to seventh place on the table with 14 points after 11 games.
