segankurePredictably, Stan Tshosane set up in his usual 4-5-1, Ramatlhakwane leading the line with Ngele tucked in behind him ahead of the duo of Nato and Motsepe. Thuma, with only a week of training under his belt following injury, was back in the first XI, while Ohilwe was at left back. Tshireletso was preferred at left wing, and Dambe in goal. Steve Komphela, less than a week long into his caretaker role following the dismissal of Pitso Mosimane in the post-Ethiopia fallout, lined up in a Brazilian-style box midfield 4-4-2 (or more accurately 4-2-2-2), with Pienaar and Tshabalala in behind Mphela and Nomvete, while Khuboni and Manyisa and Khuboni were holding in midfield. Komphela went for the experience of Khumalo in defence alongside Gould, and Masenamela came in at leftback following the injury to regular Masilela the previous week.
