Cheetahs head coach Naka DrotskÃ© has kept the faith with the squad that beat the Bulls ahead of Friday's clash with the Rebels at AAMI Stadium.
The Cheetahs made history last Friday when they recorded their first-ever Super Rugby victory over the Bulls, winning 15-9 in a try-less home game.
It therefore comes as no surprise that DrotskÃ© has stuck with that winning formula for their third game, at the Rebels, who make their 2014 bow.
