Maritzburg United v Baroka

A massive three points will be up for grabs when Maritzburg United take on Baroka in a bottom-of-the-table clash at the Harry Gwala Stadium on Saturday.

The Team of Choice are entrenched in the relegation zone after picking up just one win from their opening 13 Premiership encounters.

That solitary victory came three months ago when they beat Bloemfontein Celtic 1-0 on the road, and Fadlu Davids' side go into their final fixture of 2018 looking to snap an eight-match winless streak.

The KZN outfit have struggled to convert one point into three this term, drawing four games in a row (and eight overall) before going down 1-0 to SuperSport United last weekend.

Only Bakgaga have fared worse in the top flight and they are rock-bottom in the standings after suffering seven defeats during the first half of the season.

Wedson Nyirenda's charges upset the applecart earlier this month when they beat Orlando Pirates on penalties to lift the Telkom Knockout trophy.

They took confidence from that triumphant cup run to hold Mamelodi Sundowns to a goalless draw in the league three days later, but Bidvest Wits ended their euphoria with a 2-1 win in Limpopo last time out.
