Moroka Swallows will be looking to overcome last weeks midweek defeat against Ajax Cape Town when they host Hellenic at the Rand Stadium on Wednesday night.
Swallows lost 1-0 to Ajax Cape Town at the Newlands Stadium, but to their credit a draw would have been a fair result as the visitors pressurized the home team endlessly towards the end of the second half.
The match will be extra special for a number of Swallows players, who will be up against their former team.
Albert Kometsi, Peter Petersen, Edzai Kasinauyo and George Hummel all made names for themselves while at the Cape Town club, before becoming an integral part of the Dube Birds set-up.
And of course there is coach Gavin Hunt, who started his coaching career at Hellenic after enjoying many successful seasons as a rock solid defender for the Greek Gods.
Although none of them would like to contribute to their former teams demise from the Castle Premiership, there is no doubt that they will be going all out to secure maximum points for Swallows as the Birds look to keep pace at the top of the league table.
They are currently lying fifth on the Castle Premiership table - only three points behind leaders Kaizer Chiefs.
While the Birds flight in the Castle Premiership is adequate for a team of their caliber, the 45 year-old Hellenic is in dire-straits.
The Lansdowne-based club has not won a game all season and so far only managed two points in twelve premiership games.
Add to this they have the worst defence in the Castle Premiership - they have 21 goals against them.
Hunt's men have scored the most goals (19) in the Premiership, which means that the Hellenic rearguard and keeper Gareth Ormshaw in particular, can prepare themselves for a busy night.
Although Hellenic have the legendary Ernest Chirwali and former Sundowns premiership league winners Joas Magolego and Joel Masilela in their squad, their blend of youth and experience are just not coping in South Africa's top flight of football at the moment.
Former Bafana Bafana and 1996 African champion Neil Tovey has been roped in again to save the club from a journey to the First division after he saved them from relegation last season.
Tovey's influence has brought harmony to the players, however he still has to find a striking duo who can increase their goal tally and earn the team some maximum points hauls.
Probable line up
Swallows: Etafia, Petersen, McNab, Hummel, Lewis, Sebona, Mazibuko, Kometsi, Kasinauyo, Lota, Ndlela
Hellenic: Ormshaw, Brown, Magolego, Sixaba, Johnson, Khuzwayo, Mere, Chirwali, Ncaca, Fransch, Mnguni
