Starting XI: Maritzburg v Chippa

Absa Premiership
 
Teams: Maritzburg United v Chippa United
 
Date: 27 September 2019
 
Venue: Harry Gwala Stadium
 
Maritzburg United go in search of their first Absa Premiership win of the season when they host struggling Chippa United this evening.
 
 
The Team of Choice's struggling start to the campaign continued last week when they suffered a 2-1 loss to Mamelodi Sundowns, who netted a late winner.
 
There is some good news for Eric Tinkler after Maritzburg came out to publicly back the head coach earlier this, despite the worrying results this campaign.
 
Tinkler will Jeremy Brockie available after the New Zealand striker missed the loss to Sundowns due to a clause in his contract preventing him from facing his parent club.
 
On the other hand, Chippa will be gunning for their first win of the season after starting the campaign with four draws and two losses.
 
Victory for the Port Elizabeth outfit will see the club jump from 13th position to 11th, while Maritzburg could move up to 12th should they triumph this afternoon.
 
 
These two sides played to a goalless draw in this fixture last season, although the Chilli Boys claimed a 2-0 win in the reverse fixture.
 
Here's how they line up:
 
Maritzburg: 31. Ofori, 23. De Reuck, 5. Morgan, 25. Xulu, 36. Kunene, Ntshangase, 17. Claasen, 7. Kutumela, Lea'Alafa, 10. Brockie, 26. Shandu.
 
Subs: 30. Mpandle, 6. Sanoka, 9. Moseamedi, 2. Allie, 21. Hlongwane, Nyoni, Sangweni.
