Starting XI: Maritzburg v FS Stars

Absa Premiership

Teams:   Maritzburg United v Free State Stars

Date:      22 September 2015

Venue:   Harry Gwala Stadium

Maritzburg United will be looking to get back on their feet, after an unconvincing start to the season, when they host Free State Stars at the Harry Gwala Stadium on Tuesday evening.

The Team of Choice will be making their first appearance since the sudden sacking of Steve Komphela’s successor, Mandla Ncikazi, and will be hoping to get their first win of the season, as they currently find themselves lying rock bottom on the league standings with only a solitary point from four outings.

United succumbed to Bloemfontein Celtic in their last league encounter as goals from Thapelo Morena and Musa Nyatama secured the 2-0 victory for Siwelele.

On the other hand, Free State Stars got their first points of the new campaign via a comprehensive 3-0 win against Chippa United last time out. Ea Lla Koto were impressive and Andrea Fileccia, who grabbed a brace, will be hoping to continue with the goal-scoring form.

The Free State outfit lie in 14th position with three points from four matches, only two points above bottom-placed Maritzburg United, a statistic that makes this clash even more interesting.

Here is how they line up:

Maritzburg United: Vries, Teyise, De Jongh, Mngonyama, Paintsil, Rusike, Hartog, Lentjies, Shai, Mekoa M, Zulu.

Free State Stars: Diakite, Masehe, Mashego, Tshabalala, Sankara, Thlone, Ngasa, Mohomi, Fileccia, Thetani, Venter
