Highly-rated Mabiliso arrived at Naturena to much fanfare from AmaZulu at the beginning of the season with the hope that he will make the left fullback position his own, but chances have been limited.
The 23-year-old has only managed five appearances in the league with one from the substitute bench and he may benefit from Zwane and Sheppard.
He arrived from Swallows as the best defender in the league and with genuine hope that he will take his game to another level, but he is yet to cement his place in the heart of the defence.
Though between October and November he played seven successive league matches, the 27-year-old has largely been a bit part player with only 12 appearances.
Mashiane is one of the players on the fringes at Naturena under Baxter, but he will be hopeful for more opportunities under Zwane and Sheppard.
The 24-year-old made only four appearances this season and will be yearning for more game time during their remaining seven matches.
He hasn’t played this season in the league, but that is due to his off the field problems that led to the club sending him to attend a rehabilitation programme after he was allegedly caught driving under the influence of alcohol.
It is unlikely that he will get a chance this season, but there is hope that he will be back next season.
