Polokwane City will take aim at title chasing Kaizer Chiefs when the teams meet at Loftus Versfeld Stadium on Saturday 15 August. Kick off is at 15:30 South African time.
Polokwane missed out on a third straight win in the league when they were beaten 1-0 at Maritzburg United back in March. Rise and Shine have claimed 16 points from 12 home matches in the 2019/20 campaign.
Chiefs resumed their league campaign with a 1-1 draw at home to Wits on August 12, a match which saw striker Samir Nurkovic net his 12th goal of the season. The Amakhosi have claimed 26 points from 11 games on the road this term.
Chiefs’ closest rivals, Mamelodi Sundowns, have drawn both their fixtures since returning to league action, meaning Ernst Middendorp’s charges have a chance to extend their lead on the PSL log as they continue their quest for silverware.
