Molefi Ntseki's men got their second win of the qualifiers after goals from Percy Tau and Bongani Zungu secured a 2-0 win over São Tomé on Friday evening in Durban.

Bafana sit second in the group heading into this afternoon's encounter, three points behind Ghana who face Sudan on Tuesday afternoon.

Orlando Pirates defender Innocent Maela missed training on Saturday after picking up a knock the night before and misses out this afternoon.

As a result, Mamelodi Sundowns' Lyle Lakay has earned a start at left-back while Bongani Zungu replaces Kamohelo Mokotjo in midfield.

Here's how they line up:

Bafana: Ronwen Williams (GK), Thapelo Morena, Thulani Hlatshwayo (C), Mosa Lebusa, Lyle Lakay, Dean Furman, Themba Zwane, Bongani Zungu, Percy Tau, Keagan Dolly, Lebogang Manyama.

Subs: Darren Keet (GK), Itumeleng Khune (GK), Siyabonga Dube, Motjeka Madisha, Rushine de Reuck, Luther Singh, Tebogo Mokoena, Thabiso Kutumela, Kamohelo Mokotjo, Vincent Pule, Thabo Nodada, Siyethemba Sithebe, Kermit Erasmus.
