Starting XI: Maritzburg v Swallows

DStv Premiership

Teams: Maritzburg United v Swallows

Date: 30 April 2021

Venue: Harry Gwala Stadium

Maritzburg United will be eager to get further away from the relegation zone in the DStv Premiership when they host Swallows on Friday evening.

The match will get underway at 17h00.

The Team of Choice boosted their chances of surviving after edging Stellenbosch 1-0 on Tuesday, with Thabiso Kutumela netting  a late penalty.

Ernst Middendorp's troops sit in 13th spot on the log with 24 points, three points ahead of the relegation play-off spot held by Chippa and will have a chance to restore that six-point gap.

On the other hand, the Birds extended their unbeaten run to seven matches after a 1-1 draw with SuperSport United on Tuesday, which was their 15th draw of the campaign.

Swallows could leapfrog Orlando Pirates into fourth place if they avoid defeat, although they would have played two games more than them.

Brandon Truter's charges will be chasing a league double over Maritzburg after claiming a 2-0 victory in the first round clash in December last year.

Here's how they line up:

Maritzburg: 31. Engelhardt, 4. Allie, 16. Daniels, 5. Morgan, 22. Stevic, 17. Claasen, 42. Rae, 6. Graham, 11. Tlolane ,21. Hlongwane, 7. Kutumela.

Subs: 27. Barr, 28. Hlubi, 19. Moseamedi, 26. Shandu, 12. Modise, 25. Ismail, 13. Sifama, 19. Hachi, 15. Ntshangase.

Swallows: 30. Vries, 8. Mere, 4. Ngcobo, 5. Letlabika, 22. Hlanti, 3. Mahlatsi, 33. Khupe, 9. Mokoena, 28. Sekgota, 11. Mbokoma, 20. Gozar.

Subs: 17. Ngobeni, 4. Sibiya, 34. Sait, 27. Ritchie, 14. Thibedi, 25. Mhlongo, 24. Basadien, 15. Nyatama, 25. Malinga.
