Starting XI: Maritzburg v Sundowns

ABSA Premiership

Teams: Maritzburg v Sundowns

Date: 15 February 2013

Venue: Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium

Mamelodi Sundowns will be looking to push on from their 0-0 draw with Kaizer Chiefs when they take on Maritzburg United at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Friday night.

The Team of Choice also failed to find the back of the net in their opening fixture of 2013, having played out a goalless stalemate with AmaZulu - where Usuthu were the ones on top for the most part.

Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has seen real improvement in his side since taking over, with the Brazilians having now gone eight league matches unbeaten.

Maritzburg, though, started their campaign well and are up in fifth place on the league table with 25 points - 12 behind leaders Orlando Pirates.

Ayanda Ndlovu and Ruben Cloete are available for selection for the home side after serving out suspensions while Sundowns have no reported concerns ahead of the clash.

This is how they line up:

Maritzburg: Shu-Aib Walters, Byron Hendricks, Mohammed Awal, Mario Booysen, Michael Morton, Ruben Cloete, Delron Buckley, Cuthbert Malajila, Dillon Sheppard, Heinrich Isaacks, Bandile Shandu.

Sundowns: Wayne Sandilands, Katlego Mphela, Alje Schut, Abel Mabaso, Method Mwanjali, Jabulani Shongwe, Esrom Nyandoro, Elias Pelembe, Anthony Laffor, Tsholofelo Modise, Tebogo Langerman.
