Bakgaga are struggling to replicate the form that saw them take the league by storm in the early stages of the season, as they have been inconsistent in the second round of the campaign.
Kgoloko Thobejane’s charges will be desperate for three points to keep their top eight status, as they lie eighth on the log with 27 points from 21 matches.
Bakgaga Ba Mphahlele is hoping to come out guns blazing in the derby, after they drew 0-0 with Chippa United last weekend.
In contrast, cross town rivals Rise and Shine are in danger of being dragged into a relegation play-off scrape as they have been unable to put together a string of consistent performances.
City were not in action last weekend as they were given a week off to mourn the passing of their player Mogau Tsehla, who tragically passed away two weeks ago.
Molekwa is hoping his charges will have the strength to fight for the crucial three points, as they are now third-from-bottom with 22 points from 20 matches.
They played to a 1-1 draw with Ajax Cape Town the last time out that was three weeks ago on the fourth of February.
