Picture: The Citizen

Maritzburg United play host to SuperSport United in tomorrow’s ABSA Premier League clash at Harry Gwala Stadium kick-off 19:30 and we take you through some key talking points ahead of the game.

Mastastansta will take a trip to battle the fight of the United’s as SuperSport will take on the rejuvenated Team of Choice, that no club wants to face them at eMgungundlovu.

The Team of Choice will approach this game with high confident after the previous encounter with Bloemfontien Celtic, demolishing the Free State outfit 4-0.

The statistics are in favour for Maritzburg United ahead of tomorrow’s game. Fadlu Davids troops, in their past five games that they have played,their only lost was against Mamelodi Sundowns 1-0 and played a goalless draw in a KZN Derby against Golden Arrows. Team of Choice have scored 10 goals and conceded two goals in their last five games.

Meanwhile the performance of the team from the capital is poor, SuperSport have been cold since after The CAF Confederation Cup final. On Sunday Mastastansta lost to Golden Arrows at Princess Magogo Stadium thanks to Kudakwashe Mahachi’s single goal.

Coach Eric Tinkler is not the happiest man as he has only won one game in his last eight matches. Tinkler has lot in mind to think about; yesterday he lost the New Zealand Striker Jeremy Brockie to arch-rivals Mamelodi Sundowns with a deal alleged to be around R14 million, now he has to think about new strategies on the striking force.
