This fixture should have taken place last month but was postponed due to the untimely passing of City player Mogau Tshehla.
Siwelele have been inconsistent in the second round of the league and will want to end the campaign on a good note with only eight matches left to play for them. They have a chance to salvage their season as they lie ninth on the log with 29 points from 22 games.
The fight for places in the top eight will be on as Veselin Jelusic's charges claimed a 1-0 victory over relegation-threatened Ajax Cape Town at home this past Sunday.
As for Rise and Shine, the wheels are starting to come off and their squad depth or lack thereof was exposed when key players such Rodney Ramagalela and Rendani Ndou were out for about a month due to injuries.
Bernard Molekwa's troops drew 2-2 with Golden Arrows this past weekend in Polokwane and now sit third from bottom, level on points with 15th place Ajax Cape Town, who have played two games more.
