SUPERSPORT United welcome Lamontville Golden Arrows tomorrow to Super Stadium in a game that could propel the second-placed champions to the top of the Absa Premiership table.

The return of Ricardo Katza has been a major boost for Gavin Hunt's team, with Katza rounding off an excellent performance with a goal and a man of the match award.

But against Arrows, any sloppiness will be punished and even Katza acknowledged that yesterday.

"Arrows have been in good form. But we have also been ruthless at home in the last couple of games," Katza said.

United have only lost one match this season - at home against Ajax Cape Town - though they will miss Letladi Madubanya, who has scored a few goals this season, as well as Shane Poggenpoel and Petrus Mahlatsi.

"United are not an easy team to play against. However, we managed to beat them last season in their own backyard and we still can," Arrows' spokesperson Zwelethu Mzolo said.

There are two league matches scheduled for tonight: Maritzburg United engage Mamelodi Sundowns at Woodburn Stadium and Santos entertain Mpumalanga Black Aces at Coetzenburg Stadium. Both matches kick off at 8pm.Other Fixtures:
