The Glamour Boys are under pressure to pick up a victory against their bitter rivals as they look to make sure they keep their lead at the top of the Absa Premiership table following a tough start to 2020.

Chiefs have won half of their games this year so far after barn-storming start to the campaign in 2019, and have seen Mamelodi Sundowns close the gap on them to just four points with 10 games to go.

Ernst Middendorp explained before the Nedbank Cup defeat to Highlands Park that the three players had been placed on programmes in order to make sure they got back to full fitness, and the Siya crew is led to believe that they are all in consideration for the matchday squad.
