Zeca Marques’ side occupy very low shots on goal of 5.5 and entries into final third at 33.5. This clash looks set to be an entertaining one and it remains to be seen if the Dube Birds can claim a third win in succession, or if Msandawana can pull off all the stops and claim their first three points of the new campaign.
