The AmaKhosi got back to winning ways last weekend, with Lebogang Manyama bagging the game's only goal in the victory over Orlando Pirates.

With Mamelodi Sundowns involved in CAF Champions League duties, Chiefs have the chance to move 10 points clear of Sundowns, although they have played two games more.

Ernst Middendorp's charges will come up against an AmaZulu outfit sitting bottom of the standings, three points adrift of safety after 23 matches played.

Josef Vukusic's charges have only won two of their last 10 league encounters, the last of which was a 1-0 defeat away to Chippa United last weekend.

To make matters worse, Usuthu have not beaten the Soweto giants since 2007 while the early season encounter in KwaZulu-Natal ended in a 2-0 win for the league leaders.

Here's how they line up:

Chiefs: 43. Akpeyi, 39. Frosler, 36. Ntiya-Ntiya, 4. Cardoso, 3. Mathoho, 5. Akumu, 12. Maluleka, 5. Baccus, 8. Castro, 21. Manyama, 9. Nurkovic.

Subs: 16. Khune, 25. Parker, 11. Billiat, 18. Moleko, 7. Kambole, 22. Zulu, 20. Sasman.

AmaZulu: 28. Mbatha, 17. M. Gumede, 30. Masilela, 18. Booysen, 27. Xoki, 10. Sithebe, 6. Ncube, 34. Maduna, 2. Magubane, 19. Chawaphiwa, 7. Ntuli.

Subs: 43. Boshoff, 36. Khumalo, 25. P. Gumede, 8. Ncobeni, 37. Shangase, 31. Lacny, 13. Ngubane.
