Kaizer Chiefs welcome Chippa United to the FNB Stadium on Saturday afternoon as they look to put pressure on the Absa Premiership front-runners.
The match is scheduled to get underway at 15h00.
The Soweto giants are under pressure to finish the season strongly and still have a slim chance of winning the league title.
Teenage Hadebe netted a last-gasp winner to seal a 1-0 victory over Free State Stars at Goble Park on Wednesday evening.
As a result, Amakhosi find themselves third on the log, six points behind second-placed Orlando Pirates and seven points behind leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.
On the other hand, the Chilli Boys are struggling to put together a string of good results and find themselves dragged into the relegation dog fight.
Vladislav Heric’s troops went down 2-0 to Mamelodi Sundowns on Wednesday evening, which was their third loss from their last four league matches.
The Eastern Cape-based side have only won one of their last nine matches and will have a tough time trying to avoid the relegation play-off spot.
Chippa currently occupy 13th spot, only three points away from third-from-bottom placed SuperSport United.
