Mathoho missed the last two games for Amakhosi, the Telkom Knockout defeat to Maritzburg United and the league win over Stellenbosch, due to suspension.

The Bafana Bafana defender picked up a red card in the Soweto Derby win over Orlando Pirates in Johannesburg a few weeks ago.

With Mathoho back in contention, it remains to be seen if Phefeni Glamour Boys coach Ernst Middendorp will recall youngster Siyabonga Ngezana after he scored against Stellies last week.

Amakhosi are back at Moses Mabhida Stadium again on Saturday (20h15) after hosting Pirates at the venue in the Telkom Knockout a few weeks ago.
