The Team of Choice have picked up maximum points from their opening two Play-Off fixtures. National First Division (NFD) clubs Eagles and Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM) have meanwhile claimed three points each from three matches played.
Eagles go into Wednesday’s match on the back of a 2-1 defeat to TTM in Thohoyandou on Saturday, a result which suited Maritzburg.
The Team of Choice still have two matches to play (they host TTM at the Harry Gwala Stadium on Saturday, June 1).
But for coach Eric, it’s important that his men maintain the same do-or-die attitude they have shown over the past month.
“In life there are no guarantees, hence the fact it’s still important for us to look to collect the three points against Eagles on Wednesday,” he said.
“Obviously the result on Saturday (TTM 2-1 Eagles) was very beneficial towards us. But at the same time, it does not change our approach or our mindset.”
For the Durban team, Wednesday’s match is a must-win one, and they are expected to throw caution to the wind.
“We want to collect the three points in order to guarantee our survival,” Maritzburg’s tactician said.
“It’s going to be a very tough game, they are a team that will have absolutely nothing to lose and everything to gain. They’ll look to come at us, so structurally we need to be well organised, defensively.
“And we need to go there and be positive and play the brand of attacking football we know how to play.”
Maritzburg beat Eagles 1-0 in their first Play-Off game; Thabiso Kutumela’s goal sealing the win - although the Team of Choice had to hold off a late fight-back from the Durban team.
United are expected to have a clean bill of health for the game.
