Starting XI: Polokwane v P Stars

Absa Premiership
 
Teams: Polokwane City v Platinum Stars
 
Date: 06 December 2017
 
Venue: Old Peter Mokaba Stadium
 
With fellow strugglers Bidvest Wits and Ajax Cape Town also facing off on Wednesday evening, the Absa Premiership clash between 13th-placed Polokwane City and 15th-placed Platinum Stars will be a crucial game for both sides.
 
 
The match is scheduled to get underway at 19h30.
 
Dikwena have won just once in 12 league games this season and have spent their entire campaign so far languishing at or near the bottom of the log.
 
Meanwhile, Polokwane City have tasted some success in 2017/18 under Bernard Molekwa — most notably in a run to the Telkom Knockout semi-finals, but still have yet to truly break free of the scrap at the bottom of the log.
 
Rise and Shine have been decent in front of goal, netting 12 times in 11 league games. However, they have the joint worst defensive record in the ABSA Premiership, having conceded 15 goals.
 
Platinum Stars will look to exploit their weaknesses at the back, but will need to be wary of the league’s top scorer, Rodney Ramagalela,  who has netted only one goal fewer (6) than their entire team this season.
 
Here's how they line up:

Polokwane: 1. Chigova, 2. Semenya, 24. Hlongwane, 4. Tshilo, 5. Maponyane, 21. Seabi, 10. Tlolane, 8. J. Maluleke, 17. Ramagalela, 35. Ndou, W. Maluleke.
 
Stars: 35. Visser, 23. Mnguni, 4. Mwedihanga, 21. Zulu, 5. Sithole, 15. Msomi, 2. Mere, 12. Masalesa, 22. Ng'ambi, 39. Otladisa, 17. Ntuli.
