Starting XIs and Previews

Starting XI: Stellenbosch v Maritzburg

Stellenbosch will be determined to keep their hopes of continental football alive when they host Maritzburg United on Saturday evening.

DStv Premiership

Teams: Stellenbosch v Maritzburg United

Date: 07 May 2022

Venue: Danie Craven Stadium

Time: 17h00

Stellies kept their second successive cleansheet since beating Kaizer Chiefs, after playing to a goalless draw against SuperSport United on Tuesday.

Steve Barker's charges are lying sixth on the log, five points off continental places held by Royal AM and Cape Town City, who are both equal on points, with three rounds of matches remaining.

The Team of Choice, on the other hand, won for the first time in six matches after edging Royal AM 1-0 in the KwaZulu-Natal derby on Wednesday thanks to a well taken header in the first half by Friday Samu.

Ernst Middendorp's men are lying uncomfortably in 12th spot on the log, three points ahead of 15th-placed Swallows and a win could all but secure their Premiership status, ahead of the last two rounds of matches.. 

The sides could not be separated in the first round encounter after they drew blanks at Harry Gwala Stadium.

Here's how they line up:

Stellenbosch: 17. Stephens, 4. De Goede, 24. Kwinika, 8. Van Heerden, 7. Van Rooyen, 6. Mthethwa, 10. Mendieta, 27. Jabaar, 23. Adams, 9. Du Preez, 15. Ortiz.

Subs: 35. Bombay, 3. Letsoenyo, 25. Moseamedi, 21. Isaacs, 12. Scott, 13. Dimgba, 16. Johannes.

Maritzburg: 31. Engelhardt, 17. Claasen, 5. Daniels, 4. Allie, 2. Pereira, 6. Graham, 23. Lukhubeni, 37. Ritchie, 12. Baloyi, 20. Samu, 9. Macheke

Subs: 1. Petersen, 28. Palace, 19. Skelem, 11. Soukouna, 22. Theron, 25. Ismail, 42. Rae, 8. Kewuti, 27. Ndengane.
