Matsatsantsa were knocked out of the Nedbank Cup in the first round last weekend after narrowly losing 1-0 to neighbors Mamelodi Sundowns, while Stellenbosch fell to Maritzburg United on penalties.

In the league thoug, SuperSport’s title hopes were dented after another narrow 1-0 defeat to Golden Arrows a week before the Nedbank Cup action.

As a result, United dropped to fourth on the table but they could leapfrog Orlando Pirates into second place with victory in Cape Town this evening.

Steve Barker’s troops saw their three-game winning run in the league come to an end after going down 2-1 to Black Leopards before the Nedbank Cup loss.

As a consequence, the Western Cape side find themselves in 11th spot on the table and could grab a top-eight spot if they collect maximum points against Matsatsantsa.

The reverse fixture in Tshwane between the sides ended 1-1, with Waseem Isaacs netting for Stellies and Kudakwashe Mahachi for SuperSport.

Here's how they line up:

Stellenbosch: 35. Langeveldt, 42. Mobbie, 13. Van Heerden, 5. Mthethwa, 16. Johannes, 32. Mbekile, 23. Sinkala, 8. Matsi, 10. Rayners, 17. Karuru, 29. Moon.

Subs: 31. De Jong, 21. Isaacs, 18. Skelem, 15. Bergman, 3. Ndlovu, 6. Moroole, 20. Robertson.

SuperSport: 30. Williams, 14. Bhasera, 20. Kekana, 29. Ditlhokwe, 4. Daniels, 28. Mokoena, 24. Mbule, 8. Furman, 11. Mahachi, 22. Manziba, 7. Grobler.

Subs: 33. Pule, 26. Donn, 13. Gabuza, 25. Fleurs, 16. Modiba, 23. Waiswa, 17. Lungu.
