“Maritzburg are quite a flexible side, if you analyse them they can play in different structures.

“I think we we must understand that we must wait for PSL and Government to give us a go ahead. We must be prepared for anything but I think we shouldn’t be selecting certain games to open for fans. We hope supporters will be allowed sooner for every game,”
