Black Aces will be looking for their first win in the Absa Premiership when they host Platinum Stars in a league match at the Mbombela stadium on Wednesday night.

The match will get underway at 19h30.

Aces have only picked up one point this far in the league after drawing 1-1 Bloemfontein Celtic in their first match before going down 2-1 to Kaizer Chiefs in their second league encounter.

Platinum Stars started the season poorly after going down 2-0 to Chippa United in their first league match before picking up their first three points with a 2-1 over Free State Stars.

Dikwena, though, come into the game on a bit of a low note after losing 2-0 to Chiefs this past weekend in a first leg MTN8 semifinal.

In head-to-head stats, Aces and Stars have met in just four previous top flight league matches.

Dikwena have two wins, AmaZayoni one, and one match has ended in a draw.

Aces have yet to win a home match against Stars, with one draw and one defeat from two fixtures as host.

When the teams met in the 2010/11 season, Dikwena completed a league ‘double by winning 3-2 away and 3-1 at home.

Here is how they line-up.

Black Aces: Murambadoro, Kobola, Da Costa, Tom, Ngalo, Zuke, Gyimah, Ngoma, Mbesuma, Nale, Ndoro.

Platinum Stars: Dambe, Mere, Gumede, Mpeta, Semenya, Madubanya, Msomi, Ng’ambi, Nyanda, Tshabalala, Mabena.
