The Irish visitors have been up and down this year although they will enter the match high on confidence after holding out Benetton away from home last time out to bounce back from back-to-back defeats.
Both teams harbour slim hopes of sneaking into the top eight on the table in the next few weeks, and with everything to gain, neither team is expected to give an inch. Interestingly, Connacht have won their last eight matches against South African teams, which is something the hosts will have in the back of their minds.
The Joburgers will, however, have the extra motivation of playing in front of their home crowd for the second-last time this season, and this will fuel their determination to come out on top.
“Connacht is a very good side that plays for each other, and they have quite a bit of belief in how they do things,” said Emirates Lions assistant coach Ricardo Loubscher.
“Well need to find ways of breaking them down, and one way we believe we can achieve that is by playing to our strengths which we executed quite well during our home games. The key for us at this stage of the competition is to do well in our two upcoming games at home before we play the Dragons away in our final fixture, and it all starts with Connacht on Saturday.”
