DStv Premiership

Teams: Maritzburg United v Royal AM

Date: 04 May 2022

Venue: Harry Gwala Stadium

Time: 19h30

Royal AM are wounded after losing the Nedbank Cup semi-final 2-1 against Mamelodi Sundowns over the weekend, however, they had a consolation prize after they were confirmed as the Q-Innovation Quarter three winners on Wednesday.

Thwihli Thwahla's lead in second spot on the log has been reduced to just one point by third-placed Cape Town City, after they drew back-to-back matches against the same Citizens and AmaZulu.

As a result, John Maduka's charges will be desperate to keep the fate of qualifying for the CAF Champions League in their own hands.

Maritzburg, in contrast, are still involved in a battle for survival after extending their winless run to five matches with a 1-1 draw against TS Galaxy.

Ernst Middendorp's troops are precariously lying 14th on the log, just one point above the relegation play-off spot held by Swallows and will be desperate to get a four-point cushion going into the last three matches of the season.

The Team of Choice will be looking for revenge after losing the first round clash 2-1 at Chatsworth Stadium earlier in the season.

Here's how they line up:

Maritzburg: 31. Engelhardt, 17. Claasen, 5. Daniels, 4. Allie, 2. Pereira, 6. Graham, 23. Lukhubeni, 16. Ritchie, 28. Palace, 20. Samu, 9. Macheke.

Subs: 1. Petersen, 12. Baloyi, 19. Skelem, 11. Soukouna, 22. Theron, 25. Ismail, 42. Rae, 8. Kewuti, 27. Ndengane.

Royal AM: 16. Nyame, 17. Mogaila, 19. Matjila, 28. Mabuza, 13. Manganyi, 2. Msomi, 18. Mashikinya, 12. Mahlasela, 11. Potsane, 34. Thikazi, 10. Mabena.

Subs: 1. Heugh, 46. Mdluli, 4. Mzila, 21. Letsoalo, 45. George, 50. Masuku, 24. Lingwati, 36. Maxwele, 42. Ncobeni.
