Absa Premiership Starting XI: Polokwane City v Golden Arrows, 04 March 2018
Teams: Polokwane City v Golden Arrows
Date: 04 March 2018
Venue: Old Peter Mokaba Stadium
Polokwane City will be hoping to get back to winning ways when they host Golden Arrows in an Absa Premiership match at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
The match is scheduled to get underway at 15h30.
City played to their fifth successive draw (and a sixth without victory) when they were held 1-1 at Limpopo rivals Baroka FC on February 24. The match at least saw striker Rodney Ramagalela become the first player to reach the 10-goal mark in the league this season.
Arrows, on the other hand, broke a four-game winless streak in the league by defeating Ajax Cape Town 1-0 at home on February 25. It was just a second win in the Durban side’s last 17 PSL matches.
In head-to-head stats, Arrows and Polokwane have met in seven league matches since 2013/14. Abafana Bes’thende have claimed four wins compared to one for Rise and Shine, while two matched have been drawn.
When the teams met earlier this season in Durban, they played out an entertaining 2-2 draw. The result extended this fixture’s tendency for high-scoring matches, as the seven league games between the teams have produced no less than 26 goals.
