Their next three league opponents are Moroka Swallows (away), AmaZulu (home) and University of Pretoria (away).

The Amakhosi are placed first on the Absa Premiership log with 51 points from 22 matches.

In head-to-head stats, Maritzburg and Chiefs have met in 17 league matches since 2005/06.

The Amakhosi have seven wins compared to four for United, while six matches have been drawn.

Maritzburg have won two of their eight home matches against Chiefs, suffering two defeats in the process.
