Starting XI: Swallows v Maritzburg

Nedbank Cup 

Teams: Swallows v Maritzburg United

Date: 10 February 2018

Venue:  Dobsonville Stadium

Third-tier side Swallows FC will want to cause an upset against Maritzburg United, in their Nedbank Cup last 32 round clash at Dobsonville Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The match is scheduled to get underway at 15h30.

Swallows are using a different name because the famous namesake, was under a cloud of debts and thereby in a process of being liquidated by the courts.

Following their relegation from the Absa Premiership in the 2014/15 season, they went on to suffer the same fate in the National First Division and were again relegated from the ABC Motsepe League to the SAB League.

However, they purchased the status of Vaal Professionals to remain in the ABC Motsepe League.

Meanwhile, the Team of Choice will be wary of their unknown quantity, as teams from lower leagues always possesse the shock value given that their matches are not televised.

Fadlu Davids’ charges will not want to lose twice in Soweto in a space of a week, after going down 2-1 to Orlando Pirates last week in the Premiership.

Here's how they line up:

Swallows: 16. Ntikinga, 23. Matlola, 7. Moeketsi, 18. Mlambo, 5. Mokoena, 6. Vilakazi, 17. Letooane, 21. Mngomezulu, 22. Mashigo, 12. Mnguni, 15. Banyane.
