Usuthu have suffered four defeats from as many away matches this season, with their last outing on the road ending in a 3-0 loss at Cape Town City.

Meanwhile, Highlands played to a sixth draw from 10 league matches when they held Maritzburg United 2-2 away on November 9.

The Tembisa-based side twice came from behind to secure a valuable point.

The Lions of the North are unbeaten at home this season, with two wins and two draws from four matches as hosts.

Their last home game brought a 2-1 win over Chippa United in early October.

Highlands head coach Owen Da Gama, will look to Mothobi Mvala, who is an influential midfielder for the Gauteng side.
