Two games are lined up in the PSL on Thursday including a basement battle between Maritzburg United and TTM.
Before The Team of Choice host TTM at the Harry Gwala Stadium, Stellenbosch United will entertain high-flying Golden Arrows.
Stellenbosch have been on the wrong side of a number of entertaining games but the picture now looks like this; the Winelands side are without a league win in five games and sit in 12th.
Arrows, who have lost just once in the league, are fifth after beating Maritzburg United and Orlando Pirates in their last two league outings.
The home side have signed Nigeria youth international Ibraheem Jabaar from Ijebu United on a long-term contract but it is unknown when he will be ready for first team action.
Teko Modise believes the visitors are likely to leave this encounter with three points.
Arrows boss Mandla Ncikazi believes his side are now reaping the reward for their cohesion over the last few years.
“The connection of the players in the team, they’ve been together for years, some have been in the team for years so maybe it was time for this to happen,” he said.
“Another point it could be because I’m from the province and 80 percent of the players I’ve known from development as I was part of the development and maybe they are comfortable.”
In the late game, Maritzburg will be hoping home ground advantage and their historical edge over the visitors will do the trick. The home side’s last win came in their shock triumph over Kaizer Chiefs a month ago.
You will have to look back to November for TTM’s lone win in the league (they beat Baroka 1-0) but with coach Dylan Kerr’s presence on the training ground they have been tipped to improve.
The Limpopo side shocked SuperSport United in Nedbank Cup action and will be desperate to double their win tally in the PSL on Thursday.
