TEAM OF CHOICE FACE DIKWENA IN TKO OPENER
 
 
 

Maritzburg United were handed a home tie against Platinum Stars in the
2017 Telkom Knockout first round.

   
 

This followed the draw at the Wanderers Club in Johannesburg on Monday.

 

Stars are coached by Roger De Sa, who had a brief spell at United last season.

 

The two clubs have already met in the league this season, when Lebogang Maboe and Deolin Mekoa scored to give the KZN side a 2-0 away win.

 

Prior to that, there were two consecutive 0-0 draws and two 1-1 stalemates between the two teams.

Dikwena may be bottom of the league., but Maritzburg head coach Fadlu Davids is expecting a difficult game against the team he once played for.

“It’s a tricky one, to play them. Of course they want to use the TKO to get their league position right in terms of building some confidence. It will be a tough one, Roger De Sa is a tough coach and it won’t be easy.”

 

The fixtures have been marked for the weekend of October 27/28, with the PSL to confirm dates, times and venues.

 

Cape Town City are the defending champions.

 

TKO Fixtures:

 

Kaizer Chiefs vs AmaZulu
Chippa United vs Mamelodi Sundowns
Bloemfontein Celtic vs SuperSport United
Polokwane City vs Ajax Cape Town
