Abafana Bes’thende have been on honeymoon in the KwaZulu/Natal derby for the last seven years and are eager to keep the status quo in their PSL campaign beginning this weekend.
Arrows have not lost this clash since 2012 and want to still be unbeaten by the end of their next clash in the 2019/20 season opener against the Team of Choice at the Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium in Clermont on Sunday afternoon (3pm) .
Steve Komphela’s team have good reason to be confident of continuing their dominance over the Midlands outfit, Arrows having just won the KZN Premier’s Cup at the weekend.
This much was confirmed by left-back Divine Lunga: “Winning the Premier’s Cup has given us more confidence going into the game against Maritzburg United. It is key that we have a positive result because it sets the tone for the rest of the season. We are at home and we have to show that we are the hosts by winning the game.”
