Teams: Polokwane City v Cape Town City
Date: 16 February 2020
Venue: Peter Mokaba Stadium
Basement side Polokwane City will be desperate for points when they host Cape Town City in the Absa Premiership on Sunday afternoon.
Rise and Shine will only be focusing on their mission to survive relegation after they were booted out of the Nedbank Cup by neighbors Baroka FC 1-0 on Tuesday.
Polokwane are in deep trouble after losing their 13th match in their last 15 league games following a 1-0 defeat to fellow strugglers AmaZulu two weeks ago and are now three points away from safety.
Meanwhile, the Citizens will still be smarting from their Nedbank Cup first round exit at the hands of GladAfrica Championship strugglers Mbombela United last Sunday.
The Cape Town side’s last league outing ended i a 1-1 draw with Maritzburg United just over a week ago in Pietermaritzburg, which left the side in 11th position.
The Citizens were rampant in the reverse fixture after hammering Polokwane 5-3 in November last year in Cape Town.
