Teams: Mamelodi Sundowns v SuperSport United
Date: 24 February 2018
Venue: Lucas Moripe Stadium
Absa Premiership league leaders Mamelodi Sundowns, will be pushing for a return to winning ways when they host local rivals SuperSport United.
The Brazilians blew their chances of extending their lead to seven points at the top the standings on Wednesday, when they drew 1-1 with Free State Stars.
This should be a worrying factor for coach Pitso Mosimane, who started the match with his January signings Jeremy Brockie and Gaston Sirino against Ea Lla Koto.
Cross town rivals Matsatsantsa are enduring a difficult period and will be happy to finish the season in the top eight positions, after their campaign almost threatened to become their worst nightmare.
Eric Tinkler’s charges arrested their poor form in front of goals by thrashing Bloemfontein Celtic 4-2 three weeks ago, but somehow drew blanks in their goalless stalemate with struggling Platinum Stars on Tuesday.
United occupy 10th place on the standings with 25 points from 21 matches as a result.
SuperSport will be without the services of star winger, Aubrey Modiba, who is serving a suspension.
