In their league campaign so far in the 2018/19 season, Bucs last lost a match in August, which was a 1-0 loss to Steve Komphela's Bloemfontein Celtic.

Milutin Sredojevic’s side has been on impressive form of five wins and four draws in their last nine matches in the league.They have collected 19 points from those matches out of the 23 points they have in total from 13 matches played so far this season.

Maritzburg, who are in serious need of points after some disappointing results this season, will aim to be the team to end Bucs’ nine-match unbeaten league run.

The KwaZulu-Natal outfit played out a goalless draw with Chippa United in their home match at the Harry Gwala Stadium on Tuesday night.

Fadlu Davids’ team is 14th on the log with only one win and nine points from 10 matches this season, while Bucs are at the top of the table with six wins and 23 points from 13 matches.

Speaking to the media after Wednesday’s match, Sredojevic confirmed the technical team has been keeping tabs on what is happening at the Team of Choice.

“We watched them (Maritzburg) yesterday (Tuesday) and also they have watched us. We approach every match looking to close the opponents’ strengths and expose the weaknesses, in the same moment presenting our strengths and hide the weaknesses,” said the coach.

Bucs drew 0-0 with Maritzburg in their first round league match of last season at the Harry Gwala Stadium and won the second round match 2-1 in February this year with goals from Thabiso Kutumela and Happy Jele at the Orlando Stadium.
