SuperSport United welcome Maritzburg United in a crucial midweek Absa Premiership encounter in Tshwane.

The match is scheduled for Lucas Moripe Stadium on Wednesday night.

Kick-off is at 19:30.

This is a must win match for United who are sweating to close the gap between them and leaders Kaizer Chiefs whom they beat 2-1 this past weekend.

The win was a big morale boost for the Tshwane-based-outfit as they kicked off the new year on a positive note.

On the other hand, Maritzburg also registered their first win of the year following a 2-1 victory in the KwaZulu-Natal derby last Friday.

United are currently on position four having played 16 matches with seven wins, six draws, three losses and the same number of points (27) with Bidvest Wits who are placed third.

Matsatsantsa will rely on players such as Sipho Mbule, Kuda Mahachi, skipper Dean Furman, Teboho Mokoena and Thami Gabuza.

In the first round, the home side collected maximum points on the road, courtesy of Mahachi and Mbule respectively.
