Starting XI: AmaZulu v Stellenbosch

DStv Premiership

Teams: AmaZulu v Stellenbosch

Date: 29 January 2021

Venue: Jonsson Kings Park Stadium

A top-eight spot will be up for grabs when AmaZulu host Stellenbosch FC in the DStv Premiership on Friday evening.

The match will get underway at 17h00.

Usuthu revived their hopes of climbing up the ladder with a 2-0 victory over Baroka this past Saturday, ending their four-game winless run in the process.

Benni McCarthy's charges went up to ninth on the table, just three points behind seventh-placed Kaizer Chiefs, whom they could leapfrog if they bag another win.

On the other hand, Stellies will be searching for their first victory in five matches after they played to a goalless draw with Chiefs this past Saturday.

Steve Barker's men are lying in tenth place with the same number of points as Usuthu and they too can dislodge Amakhosi with a win today.

AmaZulu took four points off the Western Cape side in their meetings last season, winning 2-0 in KwaZulu-Natal while the reverse fixture ended 1-1 in the bio-bubble.

Here's how they line up:

AmaZulu: 44. Mothwa, 5. Sikhakhane, 29. Mabiliso, 17. Gumede, 27. Xoki, 8. Makhaula, 10. Sithebe, 23. Mlambo, 15. Memela, 20. Majoro, 7. Ntuli.

Subs: 28. Mbatha, 24. Masilela, 25. Mzava, 22. Khumalo, 6. Ncube, 11. Magubane, 30. Mulenga, 34. Maduna, 9. Mthembu.

Stellenbosch: 35. Langeveldt, 8. Van Heerden, 16. Johannes, 20. Robertson, 5. Mthethwa, 7. Van Rooyen, 18. Nange, 12. Scott, Du Preez, 13. Dimgba, 23. Adams.

Subs: 1. Stephens, 22. Skelem, 29. Moon, 4. De Goede, 3. Brenner, 14. Msengi, 24. Macheke.
