Maritzburg, who are propping up the Absa Premiership table with 11 points from 18 games, will visit Spurs at Puma Rugby Stadium on Sunday (15h00).

 “A win on Sunday will change a lot in our camp,” Ofori said. “It will push us to keep on fighting in the relegation battle.”

 The Ghanaian added: “It is not a good time for any team to face us. We are very hungry for a win. We haven’t won a game in three months.

“Our opponents must be ready to face a tough Maritzburg United.”

Ofori is mindful Spurs, who are also fighting for survival in the National First Division, enter the match on the back of a 4-1 rout of fellow second-tier strugglers Real Kings.

However, he is confident the Team of Choice will see off Shakes Mashaba’s side.
