Team News: Stellenbosch
With a fully healthy group ready to go, the Stellenbosch boss Steve Barker doesn’t have any fitness concerns whatsoever before this game.
Our feeling is that Stellenbosch might need a bit of good fortune to breach the defence of this Golden Arrows team who we think will likely get a goal themselves and run out victorious.
We therefore fancy a very competitive game with a 1-0 win for Golden Arrows when the referee blows for full-time.
We’ll see what happens.
