The Team of Choice are unbeaten in their last six league fixtures and most recently saw off Moroka Swallows 3-1 at the Dobsonville Stadium last week.

United assistant coach Fadlu Davids has urged the team to approach the match in the right manner, saying: "Cavin (Johnson) has done well with the squad he has assembled and we have to approach the game in a professional manner and give them the respect they deserve.

"Platinum Stars away from home hasn't been as good as their form at home. They have a lot of quality and depth in their squad which has formed them into a formidable side. We come into the game as the underdogs as they are flying high."

Dikwena, meanwhile, come into this clash also hot on the heels of the league leaders after handing Chiefs their first defeat of the season last week.

The Rustenburg outfit beat Amakhosi 2-0, and while captain Henrico Botes is adamant it was just another game, he is confident Dinaledi can continue their run by beating Maritzburg on Tuesday.

"It was a great performance and we respect Kaizer Chiefs, but on the field it is 11 versus 11," Botes told SuperSport.

"We are looking to continue our fine form, but we know it won't be easy, but we are confident we can get a positive result on Tuesday."
