The KwaZulu-Natal outfit has won five matches in a row in League and Cup respectively as they go to Bucs, who have had a stuttering start to the season due to inconsistent results. 

Meanwhile, Bucs have confirmed that they will be without the duo of Thembinkosi Lorch and Mthokozisi Dube, owing to suspension.

Lorch will be serving a one-match suspension for four yellow cards, while Dube will be out for the first of two matches due to a sending off. 

Both players picked up their respective cards from the 4-2 penalty shootout defeat in Telkom Knockout match against rivals Kaizer Chiefs on the weekend.  

“Mokwena and his assistants Fadlu Davids and Franck Plaine; will be without the services of some key players tonight. Right back Mthokozisi Dube is ruled out following his red card in the game against Amakhosi.
