Cape Town - Coach Shakes Mashaba has made one forced change to the Bafana Bafana starting line-up for their second leg CHAN qualifier against Mauritius on Sunday.

Bafana won the first leg 3-0 at Dobsonville Stadium two weeks ago, and the only change to the starting line-up is at left-back, where Siyabonga Nhlapo replaces the injured Marc van Heerden.

Itumeleng Khune will once again captain the side, and goalscorers from the first leg, Thamsanqa Gabuza and Siphelele Ntshangase will hope to pick up where they left off in Dobsonville.

Pirates striker Gabuza scored the opener in the win, with Black Leopards’ Ntshangase grabbing a brace.

The match is scheduled to be played at 13:00 South African time.

Bafana Bafana starting line-up: 

Khune (captain), Gumede, Mngonyama, Letlabika, Nonyane, Motupa, Twala, Nyatama, Masango,  Ntshangase, Gabuza.

Substitutes: Mabokgwane, Mgqibisa, Madisha, Monare, Ntuli, Mabena, Mnyamane
