Nazeer Allie was rested in defence for the last match and will return but Kwanda Mngonyama is injured in the backline.

Ryan Rae missed the last match but is available for selection and could make his debut in midfield. Judas Moseamedi should lead the line after being given a breather against Orlando Pirates.

Black Leopards Form

Black Leopards sit 15th in the Premier Soccer League table with just two wins in their last 11 league matches. Their 27 goals conceded is the worst record in the PSL.

Black Leopards lost four home matches in a row in the PSL before winning 2-1 away at Jomo Cosmos to progress in the Nedbank Cup. They then lost 2-1 away at Baroka before a fine 2-1 away victory at Golden Arrows.

In their last match, Leopards beat a heavily rotated AmaZulu side 1-0 at home in the Nedbank Cup thanks to a goal by Mohamed Anas.

Black Leopards Injuries & Team News

Black Leopards are expected to select an unchanged team from their victory against AmaZulu. Mohamed Anas will lead the line after three goals in two matches under new coach Kosta Papic.

Fringe players in right back Tsepo Matsimibi and left back Tsheamo Mashoene have done well in the last two matches and could get another chance in the fullback positions.
