The best and worst that KwaZulu-Natal football has had to offer this season will collide at Harry Gwala Stadium on Saturday afternoon to bring the curtain down on the 30-game DStv Premiership campaign.

But, in a huge contrast, 13th-placed Maritzburg United will be desperate to grab one point from the provincial derby to guarantee their seat in the top flight next season.
