The match is scheduled to get underway at 20h45, following a power outage at the Makhulong Stadium.

The Lions of the North come into this match on the back of a 1-0 loss to Platinum Stars, which extend their winless run to six matches.

 
Highlands find themselves bottom of the log table, but can move up to 14th spot with a victory tonight.
