Starting XI: Maritzburg v AmaZulu

Absa Premiership
 
Teams: Maritzburg United v AmaZulu 
 
Date: 01 March 2019
 
Venue: Harry Gwala Stadium 
 
Time: 20:00
 
Relegation-threatened Maritzburg United will be desperate for points when they host AmaZulu in the Absa Premiership at the Harry Gwala Stadium.
 
 
The Team of Choice could not get the momentum they were looking for after they lost 3-2 to Cape Town City last weekend.
 
Before the defeat against the Citizens, they beat Polokwane City 3-1 to end a 14-match winless run in the league.
 
Maritzburg are currently rock bottom on the table with 14 points from from 21 matches - five points adrift of Free State Stars, who currently occupy the relegation/play-off spot.
 
On the other hand, Usuthu also head into the encounter on the back of a defeat, as they were hammered 4-1 by wounded Orlando Pirates last weekend.
 
As a result, Cavin Johnson’s troops are placed 11th on the log with 23 points, but they can move up to ninth spot with a win this evening.
 
 
Here's how they line up:
 
Maritzburg: 31. Ofori, 36. Kunene, 25. Xulu, 4. Allie, 3. Sanoka, 11. Makaringe, 24. Timm, 20. Kutumela, 8. Ndlovu, 44. Zakri, 26. Shandu.
 
Subs: 1. Mpandle, 17. Figareido, 15. Matsi, 22. Mokate, 13. Kateregga, 19. Moseamedi, 28. Mekoa.
 
AmaZulu: 28. Mbatha, 17. M.Gumede, 29. Mabaliso, 5. Van Heerden, 23. T.Gumede, 33. Darpoh, 4. Morton, 50. Vilakazi, 19. Chawapihwa, 8. Ncobeni, 7. Ntuli.
 
Subs: 18. Josephs, 13. Ouro-Akoriko, 24. Sikhakhane, 14. Sithebe, 6. Ncube, 11. Karuru, 9. Cele.
