Wednesday night features the PSL game between Maritzburg United vs SuperSport United at the Harry Gwala Stadium.

Eric Tinkler will hope that his team has finally turned the corner and can continue their winning streak and take it to four consecutive league wins this season. There is a growing air of confidence in the team after qualifying for the Telkom Knockout final at the expense of Chiefs. Even though they languish outside of the top eight, they will hope to continue their rich vein of form.
