The preliminary starting line-ups for the four teams that will take part in the Carling Black Label Cup tournament on 12 November are out.
These starting line-ups are not final as fans have until 6 November to vote for their preferred starting line-ups.

Interestingly, the majority of Pirates fans want to see Thembinkosi Lorch in the starting line-up that will face Kaizer Chiefs in the second semi-final.
