Starting XI: AmaZulu v Wits

Teams: AmaZulu v Bidvest Wits 
Date: 9 March 2019
Venue: King Zwelithini Stadium 
Time: 20:15
 
Bidvest Wits will have the chance to reclaim top spot on the Absa Premiership table, with their title rivals not in action this weekend, when they visit AmaZulu at the King Zwelithini Stadium on Saturday night.
 
The game will kickstart at 8:15pm.
 
 
The Clever Boys are going through a slump at a crucial stage of the season after losing two of their last three games.
 
Their last outing was a 3-2 defeat against Cape Town City, who have entered the title race as the season reaches boiling point.
 
However, Gavin Hunt’s charges will have the opportunity to reclaim their top position on the table, with title rivals Orlando Pirates, Mamelodi Sundowns and Cape Town City all not in action this weekend.
 
Wits are placed fourth on the table, with 38 points from 22 matches, just two points behind log leaders Orlando Pirates and will go top of the table if they beat Usuthu.
 
Meanwhile, Cavin Johnson’s troops are also going through a rough patch after losing two back-to-back games against Orlando Pirates (4-1) on 23 February and Maritzburg United (2-1) last week Friday.
 
Usuthu had won two consecutive games before the slump and will be looking to rediscover their best form as they are now in danger of being dragged into the relegation scrape.
 
The Durban based side are currently lying 11th on the table with 23 points from 22 matches, just three points away from the relegation play-off spot.
 
When the sides met earlier in the season, the Clever Boys were too powerful for Usuthu as they won 3-0 in Johannesburg back in August 2018.
 
Here is how they line up.
 
AmaZulu: 28 Mbatha, 24 Sikhakhane, 29 Mabaliso, 13 Ouro-Akoriko, 27 Nyongo, 14 Sithebe, 6 Ncube, 50 Vilakazi, 19 Chawapiwa, 11 Karuru, 7 Ntuli. 
 
Subs: Josephs, Van Heerden, Maduna, Morton, Ncobeni, Ntsundwana, Cele.
 
Bidvest: Keet, Mzwakali, Hlatshwayo, Johannes, Hlanti, Claasen, Alexander, Hotto, Monare, Motupa, Lakay. 
 
Subs: Goss, Weidlich, Pelembe, Scott, Ritchie, Dzukamanja, Majoro.
