thumbnail Hello,

Andile Jali was last week sold to Belgian side KV Oostende and although he missed their midweek Cup fixture against Lokeren, the former Pirates man could make his debut on Saturday

ENGLAND

Steven Pienaar returned to Roberto Martinez's starting line-up as Everton were humiliated by Liverpool on Monday night, and the South African midfielder is expected to start against the Toffees as they welcome Aston Villa on Saturday afternoon. Pienaar was taken off at half-time, probably because he had a yellow card but he also looked off the pace.

Kagisho Dikgacoi has found it difficult to break into Tony Pulis' starting eleven in recent weeks, but the former Fulham man will be hoping for some game time as Crystal Palace travel to the Emirates Stadium to face Arsenal.

In the Championship, Tokelo Rantie will certainly feature for Bournemouth against Leicester City on Saturday. The former Malmo forward netted the winner during his side's midweek fixture, and he's expected to play another major role in Bournemouth's attack.

Andrew Surman has been one of the stand-out players in the Bournemouth team since joining from Norwich City, and he has definitely made the position his own.

Doncaster Rovers welcome Middlesbrough on Saturday afternoon, and Bongani Khumalo will be hoping to keep his place in the starting line-up.



He played the entire 90 minutes last weekend, and the former South African national team captain is expected to take charge of that Rovers defense once more.

His compatriot, Dean Furman, has lately been used as an impact player, and the former Oldham Athletic midfielder should also get a chance to play in front of his home fans.

In the League One Division, Kgosi Ntlhe's Peterborough will be hoping to bounce back from their disappointing 5-4 defeat to Oldham Athletic. Ntlhe missed that clash, but he could be back for this encounter.


BELGIUM

Racing Genk will be away to KV Mechelen on Saturday evening, and their captain Anele Ngcongca is one player certain of a starting place in the Genk defense.

Andile Jali's KV Oostende will also be away to Royal Charleroi SC on the same day as Genk, although it is unclear whether the former Orlando Pirates midfielder will play any role.



Jali completed his move from the South African club last week, but he could need some time to adapt to the Oostende's style of play. The 23-year-old looks set to make his debut.

KV Kortrijk's goalkeeper Darren Keet will be hoping to put last weekend's results behind him when his side visit Waasland-Beveren on Saturday evening.

Beveren lost their previous game to Oostende while Kortrijk lost 4-3 to Lierse SK, but Keet will be in good shape to bounce back.

NETHERLANDS

Kamohelo Mokotjo's PEC Zwolle will be in action against Roda JC Kerkrade, and the former SuperSport United defensive midfielder is hardly out of the team.

Thulani Serero's Ajax Amsterdam will kickoff their Sunday league encounter away to FC Utrecht. The speedy attacking midfielder remains one of the key players for the defending champions, and he will be eager to help his team to an important victory.
