Maritzburg United utility player Philani Zulu has likened Saturday's League clash with SuperSport United to a cup final as both clubs are chasing a ticket to next season's MTN8.
The sides have 30 points each after 23 games, with eighth-placed Maritzburg narrowly ahead on goal difference.
Zulu told his club's website: “It’s going to be a tough match – SuperSport will be coming here for victory. Like us, they have 30 points, and are challenging for the top eight – so it’s like a final for us. Win this game and we have a better chance of making the top eight.
“They play very well as a team, so we will need to do the same. We’ll have to play with passion, work harder than them, and master our instructions and game-plan better than SuperSport do on the day.”
The match kicks off at 15h00 at Harry Gwala Stadium.
