Teams: Maritzburg United v Cape Town City
Date: 07 April 2018
Venue: Harry Gwala Stadium
Maritzburg United will be looking to return to winning ways when they host Cape Town City in the Absa Premiership at the Harry Gwala Stadium on Saturday evening.
The Team of Choice will have to pick themselves up and get going again after their run of three successive victories in all competitions came to a halt following a 2-1 loss to Bidvest Wits on Tuesday.
Fadlu Davids’ charges are fighting to end the season in the top three bracket which will guarantee them continental football next term.
Meanwhile, City are also fighting to finish the league inside the top three but their 1-0 loss to Golden Arrows on Wednesday evening would have dented their chances.
Benni McCarthy’s men have lost two successive matches in all competitions and will go all out to get back to winning ways.
When the two sides met earlier in the season, the Team of Choice thrashed City 4-2 at Athlone Stadium.
