Maritzburg United will again be without some of their regulars as they bid to snap a five-match winless run in the DStv Premiership this week.

Ernst Middendorp’s not-so “Team of Choice” are preparing to visit fellow stragglers Swallows in Soweto on Saturday for their 14th assignment of the 30-game season.

The breakdown of Middendorp’s manpower situation for the assignment starts with midfielder Zukile Kewuti having to sit out his second match due to the dubious red card he received against Marumo Gallants in Polokwane last week.
