Rise and Shine’s promising season is threatening to become one to forget after losing six games in a row in the Absa Premiership.

Caretaker coach Bernard Molekwa was in charge of the last two losses after former mentor Zlatko Krmpotic presided over four straight defeats in the league before he was relieved of his duties.

City’s last defeat was against Orlando Pirates on Tuesday and as a result dropped to tenth on the table with 13 points from 12 matches - just two points above the relegation zone.

Meanwhile, Siwelele come into the encounter undefeated in their last four matches, although three of those games were draws.

Among the three draws was a goalless stalemate with Cape Town City on Wednesday, which saw the side climb to eighth on the table.

In their meetings last term in the league, both sides managed to register one victory each.

Here's how they line up:

Polokwane: 40. Chibwe, 28. Nthatheni, 24. Hlongwane, 4. Nene, 27. Motloung, 14. Manaka, 9. Mashumba, 8. J. Maluleke, 16. Mngomezulu, 20. Phiri, 11. Hlubi.

Subs: 1. Chigova, 3. Anas, 5. Sikhondze, 32. Buthelezi, 25 W. Maluleke, 6. Chauke, 33. Nku.

Celtic: 16. Mabokgwane, 18. Mashikinya, 26. Ngobeni, 35. Baloyi, 15. Pdumidzai, 50. Masuku, 13. Luthuli, 9. Sera, 3. Mahashe, 8. Phalane.

Subs: 32. Mpoto, 19. Matjila, 21. Letsoalo, 2. Tani, 28. Khasipe, 12. Meama, 7. Maloisane.
