Johan Goosen has failed his concussion test and will miss the Cheetahs home match against the Stormers on Saturday.
Coach Naka Drotské has made two changes to the team that went down to the Sharks in Durban last week.
Cornal Hendricks drops to the bench, with Raymond Rhule replacing him on the right wing. In the forwards, Andries Ferreira comes in at lock for Lood de Jager who broke his finger in the physical affair in Durban.
Both teams will be playing for nothing more than pride in Bloemfontein, as they look to make their way off the foot of the table.
Cheetahs – 15 Hennie Daniller, 14 Raymond Rhule, 13 Johann Sadie, 12 Rayno Benjamin, 11 Willie le Roux, 10 Elgar Watts, 9 Sarel Pretorius, 8 Boom Prinsloo, 7 Jean Cook, 6 Heinrich Brüssow, 5 Francois Uys, 4 Andries Ferreira, 3 Maks van Dyk, 2 Adriaan Strauss (c), 1 Caylib Oosthuizen.
Subs: 16 Torsten van Jaarsveld, 17 Trevor Nyakane, 18 Rossouw de Klerk, 19 Waltie Vermeulen, 20 Teboho Mohoje, 21 Shaun Venter, 22 Riaan Smith, 23 Cornal Hendricks.
