Michael Morton

AmaZulu will face off with Lamontville Golden Arrows in an Absa Premiership match at the Princess Magogo Stadium on Sunday.

Kick-off is at 15h00.

Usuthu fought back to hold Maritzburg United to a 1-1 stalemate in their previous league encounter on Tuesday night.

Mhlengi Cele grabbed a late equalizer for AmaZulu in an action-packed KwaZulu-Natal Derby at the King Zwelithini Stadium.

As a result, Usuthu are placed 11th on the league standings with four points from three matches. They are three points behind log leaders Maritzburg.

Cele has opened his scoring account for AmaZulu and striker will now look to inspire his new side to victory over Arrows.

Cavin Johnson’s side will be boosted by Sadate Ouro-Akoriko’s return. The Togolese defender missed the last two league matches due to suspension.

Meanwhile, Arrows are coming off a 3-1 victory over the Bidvest Wits in a league match on Wednesday night.

Lerato Lamola, Zolani Nkombela and Nduduzo Sibiya all netted for Abafana Bes’thende at the Bidvest Stadium.

The victory took Arrows to position six on the league standings with five points from three matches. They are two points behind log leaders Maritzburg.

Clinton Larsen, the Abafana Bes’thende coach, is likely to look to Lamola, who has scored two goals in three league games this season.

The last time AmaZulu and Arrows clashed in an Absa Premiership match was on 6 May 2014 at the Princess Magogo Stadium.

Usuthu emerged 1-0 winners thanks to Ayanda Dlamini’s late goal which he scored with 10 miniutes left on the clock.
