The match will kick-off at 10am at the Harry Gwala Stadium.
Coach Siya is impressed with the level of commitment shown by his boys at training.
“Preparations are going very well,” he said. “It’s a big game but we won’t treat Chiefs differently because they are the same as other teams. We are trying to rectify our mistakes especially conceding unnecessary goals. We have also touched our offensive part.”
Maritzburg have scored eight goals and conceded 19 goals in eight matches so far.
Coach Siya says they need to come up with a plan to be tighter at the back, adding that he was not too worried about their attack.
“We create a lot of chances but the concern is we are also conceding as much as we score goals," he added. "So we need to find the balance to score and protect our lead.
“We need to work collectively because we can’t say we concede because of the defenders, we are a team.
“We hope that on the weekend we will come right and get a positive result, but we know it's not going to be an easy match. We have gone four matches without a win that put us on a back foot but we are going for the full points.
“There’s no extra motivation needed from the boys because they are already motivated and they know how important it is to do well against so-called big clubs. So winning against Chiefs is going to be a big motivation."
Khan Kemeel is available for selection after serving his suspension. And there are no other suspension or injury concerns for coach Siya.
