Teams: Polokwane City v Mamelodi Sundowns
Date: 06 January 2018
Venue: Peter Mokaba Stadium
Mamelodi Sundowns will want to extend their lead at the top of the Absa Premiership table when they visit Polokwane City at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.
The Brazilians were threatening to run away with the league before the year ended after winning four matches in a row, before they were halted by Cape Town City who beat them 1-0 in the final match of 2017.
As a result, the gap between first and second spot is only three points but Pitso Mosimanes charges will have the chance to extend the lead this afternoon.
Meanwhile, Bernard Molekwa's troops ended the year on a good note by beating Chippa United 1-0.
However, Rise and Shine are still struggling in the league as they are lying 13th on the log, with 15 points from 14 games.
When these two sides met earlier in the season , Polokwane claimed a 2-1 win thanks to a brace from Rodney Ramagalela.
Here's how they line up:
Polokwane: 1. Chigova, 2. Semenya, 34. Hlongwane, 5. Maponyane, 22. Mbonani, 21. Seabi, 17. Ramagalela, 20. Phiri, 35. Ndou, 8. Maluleke, 29. Musona.
