Suspension and Injuries
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. The 27-year old was sent off after his second bookable offence after impeding an opponent.
Another casualty from this past weekends’ match is Thembinkosi Lorch who will be serving a one match suspension after an accumulation of yellow cards.
Meanwhile, Linda Mntambo looks set to miss this encounter as he struggles to shake off an injury he sustained in his Man of the Match performance over Highlands Park last week. The enterprising midfielder is due to undergo a late fitness test this morning to determine his readiness.
Thabiso Kutumela: The former Bucs forward has been among the goals for Maritzburg United and has been a crucial player in their resurgence. Kutumela has netted three times in the past month and could be a handful for his ex-teammates.
Rushine De Reuck: Standing tall in the Maritzburg defence is De Reuck. The young centre back is one of the main cogs in the club’s back four. He will be one of the players who will be tasked with keeping an eye on Tshegofatso Mabaso and company.
