Amakhosi were in ninth place, while Arrows were in eighth place at the time of writing.
Following Maritzburg's three-point victory, the Chiefs fell to tenth place, while the Arrows fell to ninth place after losing three points.
This season's favorite team has accumulated 10 points after eight games have been played thus far in the campaign.
The Pirates are in sixth place, followed by Amazulu in seventh place, and Maritzburg in eighth place, respectively.
Maritzburg, on the other hand, has played more games than both the Arrows and the Chiefs combined.
In Thursday evening's match, Arrows will take on Cape Town City, and if the KwaZulu Natal-based team manages to win, they will move above Maritzburg United, Amazulu FC, Pirates FC, and Sekhukhune United in the standings.
The team will move up from ninth to fifth place in the standings.
The Amakhosi will also be in action tomorrow when they travel to Supersport United. Should they win, they will reclaim their top-eight spot and could move up to position six or position five in the log table, depending on how many goals they score, if the Arrows also win this evening, as the two teams will be on equal points after this evening's match.
In any case, Chiefs will not have an easy game against SuperSport United, who are also looking to cut the gap on league leaders Mamelodi Sundowns, who are presently four points clear at the top of the log table.
A draw for either side tomorrow will not make much of a difference because both teams are desperate for maximum points and nothing less than that tomorrow.
