The Dube Birds are unbeaten in their opening two games, but they will be looking to get back to winning ways after their midweek 1-all draw against Kaizer Chiefs.
MP Black Aces started their season on the back foot, but picked themselves up with a 2-1 win against AmaZulu on Tuesday, and they will certainly be looking for a result against Swallows.
Lerato Chabangu has been on song for the Dube Birds this season, netting two goals in two games and he will definitely be a threat to the Aces defence.
However, the Bafana attacking midfielder will not have it easy against the likes of Eduardo Ferreira and Method Mwanjale who are beginning to understand each other.
Another interesting battle will be between the evergreen striker Mabhuti Khenyeza and Swallows’ most consistent player Larry Cohen.
Swallows are going into tonight’s clash 4th on the log after two games while Aces are placed 7th with three points after two games.
