Orlando Pirates will go in search of a third Absa Premiership victory and regain the top spot when they host Platinum Stars on Tuesday at Orlando stadium.
Pirates were out of action on weekend due to threat of students protest
Saturday night’s Premier Soccer League match between Bidvest Wits and Orlando Pirates at Bidvest Stadium was called off on Saturday night due to the threat of a “Fees Must Fall” protest disrupting the game.
Wits had received an SMS from the Wits University Student Representative Council threatening a protest to disrupt the game, and the PSL decided to abandon the game due to security concerns, said Bidvest Wits’ general manager George Mogotsi.
The PSL will decide at a later date when to reschedule the match.
