PSL

Starting XI: AmaZulu v Maritzburg

ABSA Premiership

Teams: AmaZulu v Maritzburg

Date: 12 February 2013

Venue: Moses Mabhida Stadium

AmaZulu will hope for completely different fortunes in the second-leg of the league season when they host high-flying Maritzburg United.

Usuthu went into the league break stuck at the bottom of the league table, having claimed just 12 points from their opening 16 games.

With Chippa United just a point ahead of AmaZulu, Craig Rosslee will be hoping for an early victory to help them claw their way off the foot of the table towards safety.

The Team of Choice, on the other hand, enjoyed a stunning run of form before the break as they finished in fifth place with 24 points.

If history is anything to go by, United will be favourites as they have won six times in the 11 matches against one another in the league - while Usuthu have emerged victorious just once.

Both sides have boosted their squads in January though, with Usuthu bringing in Bongani Ndulula and Makhosonke Bhengu while United signed up Heinrich Isaacks, Dillon Sheppard, and goalkeeper Virgil Vries.

This is how they line up:

AmaZulu: Tapuwa Kapini, Luyanda Hlongwa, Marc Van Heerden, Carlington Nyadombo, Thamsanqa Teyise, Kulegani Madondo, Goodman Dlamini, Njabulo Manqana, Thokozani Mshengu, Andile Khumalo, Ayanda Dlamini.

Maritzburg: Shu-Aib Walters, Byron Hendricks, Peter Petersen, Mario Booysen, Michael Morton, Thabang Matuka, Delron Buckley, Dillon Sheppard, Bandile Shandu, Heinrich Isaacks, Terrence Mandaza.
