Starting XI: Leopards v Polokwane

Absa Premiership 

Teams: Black Leopards v Polokwane City

Date: 04 August 2018

Venue: Peter Mokaba Stadium

Black Leopards hosts fellow Limpopo outfit Polokwane City on their return to the Absa Premiership.

The match is scheduled to get underway at 18h00.

Leopards secured their return to the top flight of South African football after coming out on top in the play-offs ahead of Jomo Cosmos and Platinum Stars.

The clash will take place at the Peter Mokaba Stadium after Thohoyandou Stadium was not approved by the Premier Soccer League.

Polokwane, meanwhile, will want to improve on last season's showing after they finished in 12th position under Bernard Molekwa.

Rise and Shine will be under new management this season, with Slovakian coach Jozef Vukusic taking over from Molekwa, who will now be the assistant.

These two Limpopo outfits last met in 2013-2014 play-offs, with Rise and Shine claiming a 2-1 victory that secured their top flight status.

Here's how they line up:

Leopards: Muleka, Ndou, Mashoena, Munganga, Ndlovu, Nange, Mudau, Nene, Musonda, Tshepe, Mhlongo.

Subs: Masia, Mahangwahaya, Zulu, Hlongwane, Mokoena.

Polokwane: Chigova, Sikhosana, Hlongwane, Motloung, Mbonani, Seabi, Ramagalela, Phiri, Musona J. Maluleke, Sikhondze.

Subs: Ndlovu, Ravhuali, Nkili, Manaka, Miya, W. Maluleke, Baloyi.
