The Team of Chose will host Black Aces on Saturday, September 13 with the home side looking for a third successive home victory in the PSL. 

Maritzburg United's last PSL match was played away at Free State Stars which ended in 1-1 draw. 

The KwaZulu-Natal team has claimed wins over Polokwane City and Chippa United in their two previous home matches and will be targeting Mpumalanga Black Aces as their third scalp.

The Team of Choice are placed sixth on the Absa Premiership log with eight points from five matches and coach Steve Khompela will be hoping his side will be able to continue with their fine early season form.

Last season the KwaZulu-Natal side won 2-0 at home, but AmaZayoni claimed a 2-1 victory in the return match in Mpumalanga.

AmaZayoni are placed 12th on the log with five points from as many matches. 

Clive Barker’s side has picked up four points from a possible six in away matches this season.

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

The Team of Choice boast four wins compared to the two for AmaZayoni.

Aces were also held to a draw in their last PSL fixture when they hosted University of Pretoria.

Kick-off is scheduled for 15:00.
