Maritzburg suffered a fourth home defeat when they were beaten 1-0 by SuperSport United earlier this month.

The KwaZulu-Natal side has claimed 13 points from 11 away matches this season.

Their next three league opponents are Bloemfontein Celtic (away), Ajax Cape Town (home) and Moroka Swallows (away).

The Team of Choice is placed ninth on the Absa Premiership log with 30 points from 24 matches.

In head-to-head stats, Aces and Maritzburg have met in seven league matches since 2009/10.

The Team of Choice has four wins compared to two for AmaZayoni, while just one match has been drawn.

Aces have won two of their three home matches against United, suffering one defeat in the process.

When the teams met earlier this season in Pietermaritzburg, they played to a goalless stalemate.
