Starting XI: Arrows v Stellenbosch

DStv Premiership 

Teams: Golden Arrows v Stellenbosch

Date: 05 June 2021

Venue: Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium

Golden Arrows will be hoping to finish in third spot when they welcome relegation-threatened Stellenbosch on Saturday afternoon at Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium.

The match is set to begin at 15h00.

Arrows' destiny of securing a CAF Confederation Cup spot is no longer in their hands after narrowly losing a five-goal thriller against Kaizer Chiefs in midweek.

Abafana Bes'thende dropped down to fourth on the log with 46 points, three points behind third-placed Orlando Pirates and need to win and hope the Buccaneers lose against Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila, to clinch third spot on a better goal difference.

In contrast, Stellies will be fighting to secure their Premiership status after missing the chance to confirm survival with a goalless draw against TS Galaxy in the penultimate round on Wednesday.

Steve Barker's troops are without a win in their last 11 matches and are lying 14th on the log with 28 points, two points above the relegation play-off spot held by Chippa United and need at least a draw to secure their Premiership status.

Arrows will also be looking to complete a league double over the Western Cape side after thrashing them 3-1 in the first round clash in February this year at Danie Craven Stadium.

Here's how they line up:

Arrows: 36. Mlungwana, 29. Sibisi, 3. Lunga, 31. Zuke, 28. M.Dube, 6. Parusnath, 12. Ndwandwe, 13. Mmodi, 18. Mutizwa, 33. M.Gumede, 4. Makhubela.

Subs: 1. Mbaeva, 37. Ndlovu, 5. Shitolo, 26. Phiri, 20. Mathiane, 17. Mtshali

Stellenbosch: 35. Langeveldt, 7. Van Rooyen, 24. Macheke, 5. Mthethwa, 8. Van Heerden, 12. Scott, 27. Jabaar, 18. Sinkala, 23. Adams, 10. Mendieta, 13. Dimgba.

Subs: 16. Stephens, 20. Robertson, 4. De Goede, 15. Bergman, 14. Msengi, 19. Nange, Van Wyk, 11. Khunyedi, Johnson.
