Cape Town - Shakes Mashaba has made two changes to the team that defeated Sudan for their crunch 2015 AFCON qualifier against Nigeria in Cape Town on Wednesday.

Mashaba hinted at the press conference on Tuesday night that there would be very few changes to the Bafana Bafana side after a confident display in Khartoum. 

The coach has retained faith in the defence that kept the Sudan attack at bay while space is made for two goal hero Sibusiso Vilakazi to start this match.

Cape Town local Keagan Dolly, who made his debut against Sudan, drops to the bench as Orlando Pirates star Oupa Manyisa is brought into the midfield.

The match kicks off at 20:00.

Bafana starting XI:

Senzo Meyiwa, Thulani Hlatshwayo, Anele Ngcongca, Mulomowandau Mathoho, Thabo Matlaba, Andile Jali, Dean Furman, Oupa Manyisa, Mandla Masango, Sibusiso Vilakazi, Bongani Ndulula


Darren Keet, Sibusiso Khumalo, Rivaldo Coetzee, Kamohelo Mokotjo, Tokelo Rantie, Keagan Dolly, Themba Zwane
