The PSL’s log leaders, SuperSport United, take on third placed AmaZulu this weekend as they look to get back to winning ways following their defeat to Moroka Swallows.
Matsatsantsa succumbed to their first defeat of the season earlier this week when they were beaten 2-1 by an in-form Dube Birds side.
However, their head coach, Cavin Johnson, will now be looking for the side to bounce back from that defeat by handing Usuthu their second loss of the 2013/14 campaign.

This weekend’s encounter will be the 37th league meeting of the two sides since 1990, and as it stands, it is SuperSport who have the better record.
In the 36 league encounters previous to this weekend’s game, the Pretoria-based outfit have claimed victory 18 times, losing 10, while eight have ended with the points shared.
However, AmaZulu have lost just six times at home over the years, and this fixture last season ended in a 0-0 draw after SuperSport had won the first tie 3-0 in Tshwane.
A win for Cavin Johnson’s side would see them go three points clear of Craig Rosslee’s team and all but secure their place on top of the PSL until the next gameweek.
The two teams will go at each other at Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban from 20h15 on Saturday night.
