The match is set to get underway at 20h00.

The Team of Choice will be looking to regain their form after a goalless draw with Orlando Pirates on Tuesday, which ended their three-game winning run in the league. As a result, Eric Tinkler’s troops were left lying tenth on the table with 12 points from nine matches.

United will be without the injured Phumlani Ntshangase and midfielder Kwanda Mngonyama, who was sent off against Piraes.

Meanwhile, Siwelele will be seeking momentum after their 3-1 victory over Highlands Park on Tuesday ended a three-game winless streak.

Lehlohonolo Seema’s charges went up to ninth on the table after the morale-boosting win over the Lions of the North, with the same number of points as Maritzburg and the winner will dislodge Polokwane City of eighth spot on the log, while a draw for Celtic will also be enough to enter the top half of the table.

The Team of Choice have won the last four meetings between the sides in all competitions, including a league double over Siwelele last season.

Here's how they line up:

Maritzburg: 31. Ofori, 25. Xulu, 5. Morgan, 3. Sanoka, 23. De Reuck, 15. Timm, 8. Buchanan, 12. Nyoni, Lea'Alafa, 7. Kutumela, 11. Brockie.

Subs: 30. Mpandle, 26. Shandu, 4. Allie, 14. Claasen, 17. Augusto, 19. Moseamedi, 36. Kunene.

Celtic: 16. Mabokgwane, 18. Mashikinya, 26. Ngobeni, 10. Mabena, 35. Baloyi, 15. Pfumidzai, 50. Masuku, 13. Luthuli, 9. Sera, 24. Lingwati, 8. Phalane.

Subs: 31. Chaine, 11. Potsane, 14. Njoti, 2. Tani, 28. Khasipe, 12. Maema, 20. De Jongh.
