Starting XI: Highlands v Arrows

Absa Premiership
 
Teams: Highlands Park v Golden Arrows
 
Date: 16 September 2018
 
Venue: Makhulong Stadium
 
Highlands Park and Golden Arrows square off in a crunch Absa Premiership clash in Tembisa on Sunday.
 
 
The Lions of the North are yet to win following their promotion from the National First Division, but have not lost either after playing to four successive draws in their four matches to date.
 
Among the teams that were held include Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns away from home, but have also dropped points from a winning position.
 
The visitors have not been too convincing either and after playing to a draw in their last encounter, sit just outside the top eight in ninth place.
 
On the other hand, Owen Da Gama’s side will see this encounter with the aim to collect their first maximum points this season.
 
But given their defensive inept in recent games, just might come back and haunt them against a fast-pace Arrows side.
 
A win for the latter will see them stamp their authority on a top eight position, while Highlands could go as high as fifth with three points.
 
 
Here's how they line up:
 
Highlands: 16. Kapini, 33. Sibande, 34. Motsepe, 21. Mokoena, 23. Msimango, 14. Mvala, 43. Mbatha, 20. Ramoraka, 6. Zwane, 31. Nyembe, 9.Ngebo.
 
Subs: 1. Heugh, 5. Fransman, 38. Shalulile, 17. Motlafi, 45. Haoseb, 27. Sekola, 26. Mafokeng.
 
Arrows: 32. Gumede, 29. Sibisi, 21. Mgwengwe, 5. Mazava 13. Lunga, 24. Molefe, 30. Conco, 27. Magubane, 4.  Venter, 18. Mutizwa, 22. Sibeko.
 
Subs: 33. Naicker, 28. Bilankulu, 25. Motebjane, 26. Phiri, 9. Moreira, 11. Sibiya, 41. Lamola.
