Legendary manager Faouzi Benzarti has already taken the squad through their paces for a light training session as they look to recuperate following a demanding travelling schedule over the past two weeks.

The Tunisian, who has 20 major titles to his name returned for a fourth stint and succeeded Miguel Gamondi, who was relieved of his duties following their inability to retain the Botola title or win the Champions League.

Benzarti's return and the signing of Morocco international striker Ayoub El Kaabi has seemingly invigorated the two-time African champions as they lead the 2020/21 league table.

The 27-year-old striker who scored the winner against Petro this week has already scored six goals in 10 games across all competitions.

WAC will be hosting Amakhosi at the neutral venue after three separate postponements on Sunday 28 February at the August 4 Stadium (18h00).
