Teams: Golden Arrows v Maritzburg United
Date: 28 January 2021
Venue: Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium
Maritzburg United will be seeking redemption when they visit Golden Arrows in the KwaZulu-Natal derby on Saturday evening at Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium.
The match is scheduled to start at 17h00.
After a revival from bottom place by coach Ernst Middendorp, United went back to square one after losing back-to-back matches to TS Galaxy and Orlando Pirates last Saturday.
As a result, the Team of Choice are still flirting with relegation, lying third-from-bottom on the table with the same number of points as the two bottom sides, Black Leopards and Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila.
Arrows will want to prove that their early season form was not a fluke after losing their first match of the season in a 4-2 defeat by Cape Town City on Sunday.
Mandla Ncikazi's charges are lying sixth on the log with 19 points and will have a chance to go up to fourth on the table with two games in hand.
The sides cancelled each other out in their meetings last season, with Abafana Bes'thende winning 1-0 at home in the first round before Maritzburg claimed a 2-1 win in the reverse fixture.

Arrows: 36. Mlungwana, 3. Lunga, 20. Mathiane, 37. Ndlovu, 28. M.Dube, 13. Mmodi, 23. L.Dube, 4. Makhubela, 6. Parusnath, 33. M.Gumede, 19. Mutizwa.
