Bottom club Black Leopards have everything to play for when they meet resurgent AmaZulu in Saturday’s Premiership clash at the Thohoyandou Stadium in Limpopo. Leopards come into the encounter having drawn three and lost two of their last five league outings. Meanwhile, Usuthu have won three in a row including an impressive 3-0 victory over Bloemfontein Celtic last Wednesday. As such, it appears the home side may not be favourites for Saturday’s clash although it is all on the line for the hosts on home soil. Despite signing veteran Robert Ng’ambi in the lead-up to the contest, the 32-year-old will not be available. Team manager Elijah Mulaudzi told Soccer Laduma: ‘We have signed Robert Ng’ambi. I don’t think he will play in this weekend’s game. In fact, I can confirm that he is out for this one.’ Meanwhile, for the Durban-based outfit Emiliano Tade comes into the game in great form with five league goals in 11 appearances, including a brace against Celtic in mid-week. In team news, Chris Katjiukua returns for availability after serving a suspension while AmaZulu may hope that veteran Siyabonga Nomvethe can add to his goal against Siwelele earlier in the week. Kickoff is 15:30.
