Orlando Pirates only have points on their minds with pleasing football a secondary objective as they meet Eric Tinkler’s tough sixth-placed DStv Premiership side Cape Town City at Cape Town Stadium on Wednesday night (3pm).

The third-placed Buccaneers are locked in a titanic struggle with an also in-form Stellenbosch FC for the 2023-2024 runners-up spot, though Steve Barker’s second-placed Cape side are easily the more consistent.

Stellies have gone 13 league and cup games unbeaten and have not lost in 17 Premiership matches. They have 46 points from 25 games and in that sort of form will be difficult for any team to dislodge behind runaway leaders Mamelodi Sundowns (59 points from 23 matches).

Pirates (43 from 25) have hit scoring form with 16 goals scored and three conceded in four league and cup wins.
