The Cheetahs need the win on Saturday against Griquas to stay in touch with the Stormers, Sharks and Bulls going into the Currie Cup.
They will end third on the log but will reduce the points with a win against Griquas.
The Cheetahs team for Saturday sees four changes with Rhyno Smith coming in on the right wing while Mnisi goes to the midfield and will be wearing the number thirteen jumper this weekend.
Hencus van Wyk is set to make his debut at prop inplace of Luan de Bruin. We also see Boan Venter and Charles Marais swaping places at loosehead.
Pokomela was ruled out with an injury which sees Aidon Davids coming in on the side of the scrum. The Cheetahs will be led on Saturday by Carl Wegner.
Griquas only change from their side that almost beat the Sharks last weekend comes at No 8 where Els comes in for Momsen.
On the bench we see André Swarts coming in for utility back Ashlon Davids.
