Starting XIs: Wits v Maritzburg

Absa Premiership leaders Bidvest Wits will do battle with Maritzburg United, who are aiming to boost their survival bid under new coach Eric Tinkler.

Kick off is at 20h00.

Wits have failed to win their last two matches in the league at home and on the road to Kaizer Chiefs and Polokwane City respectively, allowing Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns reduce the gap.

The Clever Boys were involved in Nedbank Cup action last week as they thrashed ABC Motsepe League outfit Boyne Tigers 4-0 at the Bidvest Stadium.

Maritzburg, who employed their third coach of the season in Eric Tinkler following Muhsin Ertugral’s departure, are still searching for their first win since September.

The Pietermaritzburg side are rooted to the bottom and have scored only six goals all season from 18 matches.

A win over the Clever Boys will do little to move Tinkler’s troops off the bottom, but they will move to within a point of 14th-place Chippa United, who face Baroka FC on Sunday.



Wits: Keet, Hlatshwayo, Nonyane, Mkhwanazi, Hlanti, Alexander, Monare, Mhango, Hotto, Dzvukamanja, Murray.
