Stakes will be high at Harry Gwala Stadium as Maritzburg United will look to claim maximum points against a resolute Baroka FC side.
The home team were derailed by Orlando Pirates as they looked to resurrect their season, while the Limpopo outfit will be bouyed by their victory against Chippa United in Gqeberha.
The Team of Choice currently occupy 13th spot on the Dstv Premiership log while Bakgaga are eighth.
Duels between the two teams have been tightly contested but there has always been a winner in their last three outings, with Baroka holding the advantage. Overall, Maritzburg have won five of the nine contests with Baroka claiming three victories and there has been a single draw.
The KZN side will look to continue where they left off against Chippa United, winning the match 5-1 at the same venue. Their position on the log will also be a motivation to go an extra mile, knowing that a victory will take them closer to safety.
Meanwhile, Baroka will look to continue collecting points, after attaining four from their last two matches home and away.
The first leg encounter between the two sides in October last year ended 2-1 in favour of Baroka.
