The Team of Choice are currently competing in the relegation/promotion playoff against Casric Stars and Cape Town Spurs.

While they are favourites to win the mini-tournament and keep their place in the DStv Premiership next season, there were concerns when they experienced a slow start against Casric. United wasted the few opportunities they had until Human stole the show.

In the 27th minute of the game, the midfielder latched onto a clearance by Casric, dribbled his way closer to the box, and unleased a brilliant strike that flew into the goal's bottom corner.

While his first goal was an absolute stunner, his second of the night was a cool, calm, collected finish.

Human found himself free on the left side of the box and calmly slotted past the keeper. Before the game against Casric, Human had yet to score in 27 games for Maritzburg.

As noted by Transfermrkt, Human has played 49 games in total for the side, scored three goals, and notched up four assists. Despite his heroics in the game against Casric Stars, Maritzburg United still find themselves in second place in the standings.

They face Casric Stars once more before playing Cape Town Spurs in their final game, knowing that they need to win both to stand a chance of keeping their spot in the DStv Premiership.

How promotion and relegation works

The fight for the final place in the DStv Premiership for next season continues.

With the mini-tournament to decide who secures the final spot in the standings reaching the halfway stage, it’s anyone’s guess who will win it.
