Highlands Park will target all three points when they host AmaZulu for an Absa Premiership clash at Makhulong Stadium on 27 November 2018, kick-off at 19h30.

Highlands played to a sixth draw from 10 league matches when they held Maritzburg United 2-2 away on November 9. The Tembisa-based side twice came from behind to secure a valuable point.

AmaZulu saw their winless run in the league extended to seven matches when they were held 0-0 at home by Polokwane City on November 11. The Durban side’s last victory was in mid-August.

Usuthu have suffered four defeats from as many away matches this season, with their last outing on the road ending in a 3-0 loss at Cape Town City.

This will be the first top-flight league meeting of Highlands Park and AmaZulu.
