Having recorded 11 draws out of 14 Premiership matches this season, Matsatsantsa beat Moroka Swallows 3-1 at Dobsonville Stadium last Friday.

United's victory in Soweto left them eighth in the standings, 16 points and five places behind their weekend opponents.

Cavin Johnson's Dikwena just keep defying the odds, having edged Golden Arrows last Saturday in a 10-goal thriller at Royal Bafokeng Stadium.

The Rustenburg outfit are now tied on points with second-placed Orlando Pirates, and depending on how the Buccaneers fare against Maritzburg on Friday, can overtake the defending champions with a win in Tshwane.

In team news, Bevan Fransman is suspended for the hosts, while Nathan Paulse and Sibusiso Zuma are both one caution away from the same fate.

Davis Nkausu has recovered from injury, although will also need to mind himself of the referee's notebook. Edwin Gyimah is once again available having served his ban.

For Dinaledi, Robert Ng'ambi and Sibusiso Msomi are both suspended for the trip. In-form striker Henrico Botes, who has scored five goals this term, needs to avoid a booking or earn himself a suspension.
