Team News: Golden Arrows
Due to a fully injury-free group to choose from, Golden Arrows boss Steve Komphela has zero fitness worries at all before this match. Pule Mmodi is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
We’re of the opinion that Black Leopards could find themselves struggling to see themselves scoring against this Golden Arrows outfit who we think might do enough to score at the other end and edge ahead.
With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a highly competitive game with a 0-1 winning score for Golden Arrows at the end of this one.
