Johannesburg - Golden Lions coach Johan Ackermann has named his team to tackle the EP Kings in a Currie Cup clash at Ellis Park on Saturday

According to the Lions' official website, Ackermann has opted for consistency, making just one forced change to his starting side which downed the Blue Bulls 41-13 last weekend.

Jaco van der Walt will start at flyhalf as he slots in for the injured Marnitz Boshoff.

Meanwhile, on the bench, Ackermann has drafted in Guy Cronje and Springboks Sevens star Kwagga Smith. Smith will celebrate his Currie Cup debut should he get a run out on Saturday.

The match will kick off at 14:30.
