Petersen faces late fitness test



Maritzburg United will give right back Peter Petersen a late fitness before Tuesday’s league clash against SuperSport United.

He is suffering from a hamstring strain and will have to prove his fitness just hours before the kick off of the game at the Harry Gwala Stadium.

It is the second meeting between the two sides at the venue this month. SuperSport beat Maritzburg 2-0 in the Telkom Knockout quarterfinals, where Petersen was taken off in the first half through injury.

Since Maritzburg have won two successive league matches to go fourth in the Premier Soccer League standings, where they are just five points behind the leaders Kaizer Chiefs.

Maritzburg, who have 19 points from their first 10 league matches of the season, have beaten Bloemfontein Celtic and Lamontville Golden Arrows in their last two matches.

Tuesday’s match also marks a second and last game on the sidelines for coach Ernst Middendorp who was sent off against Celtic.

He received a two-match ban for the suspension and will have his duties taken over by assistants Fadlu Davids and Ronnie Kanalelo on Tuesday night.
