PSL Promotion Play-Offs
Teams: Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila v Black Leopards
Date: 12 September 2020
Venue: Bidvest Stadium
Black Leopards will be aiming to maintain their perfect start in the play-offs when they lock horns with local rivals Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila on Saturday afternoon.
The match will get underway at 15h00.
Lidoda Duvha got over the heartbreak of having to remain in the bio-bubble after finishing second-from-bottom in the Absa Premiership with a narrow 1-0 win over Ajax Cape Town in midweek.
As a result, Leopards are now leading the mini-log with three points, equal on points with Ajax but they boast a better goal difference despite playing a match less.
Morgan Shivambu and Mongezi Bobe's charges could extend their lead at the top to three points if they secure three points this afternoon.
In contrast, Vhadau Vha Damani started their play-offs campaign on a bad note after losing a five-goal thriller against the Urban Warriors last weekend.
As a consequence, Lucky Nelukau's troops are rooted at the bottom of the mini-log, without points but they could go level on points with both Leopards and Ajax if they get their first victory today.
Here's how they line-up:
TTM: Mamudzidi, Mashele, Mabotja, Nyadombo, Thangwane, Amoojee, Mbandlwa, Hlongo, Ndlondlo, Mokoena, Nevhulamba.
Subs: Ramaele, Masegela, Makgoga, Moremedi, Dzaga, Khumalo, Mandlazi, Ndebele, Makhubu.
Leopards: K.Ndlovu, Mudau, Zulu, Masia, Ndou, Abubakar, Ng'ambi, Thutlwa, Matlaba, Makgetlwa, Musonda.
Subs: Mendes, Ndawonde, Douhadji, Modiba, X. Ndlovu, Mashoene, Mokoena, T. Ndlovu, Khutlang.
