Teams: Golden Arrows v Highlands Park
Date: 29 February 2020
Venue: Sugar Ray Xulu
A top-eight encounter is scheduled to take place at Sugar Rey Xulu Stadium as Golden Arrows host a confident Highlands Park encounter on Saturday.
The Lions of the North will be riding high on confidence after defeating Kaizer Chiefs on penalties last weekend to advance to the Nedbank Cup quarter-finals.
The win over Chiefs extended Highlands' unbeaten run to five matches across all competitions, with three wins coming int the league.
Arrows, meanwhile, have been well rested and were last in action when they defeated local rivals AmaZulu two weeks ago in the Premiership.
Steve Komphela's charges occupy eighth spot, level on points with Owen da Gama's, who can only move as high as sixth with a win this afternoon.
When these two sides met earlier in the season, goals from Ryan Rae and Peter Shaulile guided Highlands to a 2- win at Makhulong Stadium.
