Preview - Maritzburg v Santos
Struggling Maritzburg United play Cape-based Santos in a Castle Premiership match at Harry Gwala Stadium on Friday evening (kick-off 8pm).
United have acquired the services of Serbian-born coach Vladislav Heric since Steve Khompela left the post under controversial circumstances.
Heric who joins 'The Team of Choice' from OR Tambo Cosmos faces a tough challenge as he tries to keep the KwaZulu-Natal side in elite Premiership.
While the Cape side Santos travel to Kwazulu-Natal without their skipper Dipsey Selolwane, who is suspended after picking his third yellow card.
Maritzburg's new coach is eager to get his team into shape telling The Sowetan that he aims to change the players' mind-set.
"They need to regain the composure they lost in the past few games," he said. "They have to be aggressive and focused because we're in an unenviable position."
"We're looking at an aggressive defence and the frontline to bang in goals because that is the name of the game."
With Nkosinathi Ngema out injured United are happy to have utility player Bradley August back from injury.
