We wrap up the season tomorrow afternoon with a KZN Derby against the team of choice at the Harry Gwala Stadium. The game will kick off at 3pm.
The team will be fighting to retain a Top 8 spot on the table in this game. This means that not only are bragging rights on the cards, but much more than that.
Coach Larsen is spoilt for choice for players, with Danny Phiri and Lehlohonolo Nonyane returning to the field after injuries as well as Lerato Lamola, Sandile Zuke, Siyabonga Dube and Zolani Nkombelo returning after suspensions.
This is a refreshing change for the technical staff, who have endured a number of drawbacks over the season due to injuries.
Currently sitting 7th on the log, Abafana Bes’thende need to secure full points to ensure the Top 8 finish. Chippa United, Bloem Celtic an Bidvest Wits sit only a point below us on 36 points and eleventh placed Amazulu FC have 35.
A win is a big ask for the side, but the determination that has been displayed over the season can pull us through tomorrows game and see us bringing the 3 points home.
We played Maritzburg last in December 2017 at home, and the result was a draw. Maritzburg have however had a tantalising season and have done well to keep their log position just under the top 3.
A win for them could however mean a 3rd place spot for the season, an objective they will not give up easily on.
If you can get to the stadium and support, it would be greatly appreciated by the players.
We will keep you in the action on both Facebook and Twitter should you not be able to make the game as it will not be a live game
