DSTV PREMIERSHIP SCHEDULE: POLOKWANE CITY VS ORLANDO PIRATES

The big ambition is clear. The Buccaneers want to finish second to ensure CAF Champions League football in May.

Pirates are currently five points below second place. Winning against Polokwane is key today.

Inconsistent results need to be corrected, though. Jose Riveiro’s side have two wins, one draw and two defeats in the last league five games.

Today’s hosts, Rise and Shine, have the same inconsistency: two wins, one draw and two defeats.

According to Pirates media and Dstv’s schedule, the game will be on SuperSport TV’s channel 202.
