The Citizens have not been enjoying the last couple of months as they have failed to win their last eight across all competitions, the last of which as a penalty shoot-out loss to Kaizer Chiefs in the Telkom Knockout.

As a result of their poor form, Benni McCarthy's troops find themseleves in 10th position, one spot ahead of tonight's due to a superior goal difference.

While City have been on a downward spiral, the Team of Choice look to be on the rise after winning their last three encounters in all competitions.

Maritzburg's last encounter also ended with a penalty shoot-out as they defeated Bidvest Wits to advance to the Telkom Knockout quarter-finals.

The statistics do make good reading for City though, as the men from Cape Town are unbeaten in their last four matches against Maritzburg.

Here's how they line up:

City: 1. Leeuwenburgh, 2, Mkhize, 12. Fielies, 15. Cupido, 5. Edmilson, 21. Mokeke, 26. Nodada, 8. Makola, 23. Lakay, 22. Mayambela, 9. Erasmus.

Subs: 16. Stephens, 25. Mthembu, 41. Abrahams, 6. Seedat, 19. Putsche, 38. Kewuti, 30. Martin.

Maritzburg: 30. Ofori, 25. Xulu, 36. Kunene, 5. Morgan, 23. De Reuck, 4. Allie, 45. Mngonyama, 14. Classen, 26. Shandu, 7. Kutumela, 10. Brockie.

Subs: 31. Mpandle, 3. Sanoka, 20. Moseamedi, 29. Mekoa, 8. Buchanan, 12. Nyoni, 26. Sangweni.
