PSL

Starting XI: Black Aces Vs TRZ

National First Division

Teams: Mpumalanga Black Aces – Thanda Royal Zulu

Date: 19 May 2013

Venue: Themba Senamela Stadium

Referee: Daniel Bennett

The battle for promotion to the Absa Premiership reaches a stunning finale as Mpumalanga Black Aces host Thanda Royal Zulu.

Both teams have the chance to earn automatic qualification for South Africa’s top league, but Aces have the upper hand as they lead the race on 47 points. Thanda Royal Zulu meanwhile are a single point behind, while Polokwane City and Santos are also on 46 points and in line for promotion depending on Sunday’s results.

If Aces, currently a point ahead of the trio, want to secure their top-flight status they need Sunday’s home win, but after just losing 2-0 to relegated Dynamos, it might well be a tall order for Jacob Sakala’s team.

This is how the teams line up:

Aces: Bafana Nhlapo, Omar Hendricks, Luckyboy Mokoena, Thabang Rooi, Nkululeleko Tshangane, Thabo Qalinge, Essau Mtsweni, Themba Njwaga, Siyabonga Nontshinga, Zaid Patel

TRZ: Nimrod Tsengwa, Sifiso Hlanti, Christoph Komane, Asanda Mvalo, Diamond Thopola, Nkosinathi Mthiyane, Gerald Xowana, Vusi Mthimkulu, Lunga Zondi, Mbuso Manyoni, Mhlengi Cele.
