After losing their first two matches of the new year, Stellies bounced back with back-to-back wins over Highlands Park and Baroka.

Steve Barker's charges are starting to look up rather than down on the table as they jumped up to 12th on the log, four points above the drop zone.

Meanwhile, Rise and Shine are stuck in the relegation scrape after holding Golden Arrows to a 1-1 draw thanks to a late equaliser by Mohammed Anas last Sunday.

Clinton Larsen's troops are languishing in third-from-bottom position on the log, level on points with bottom sides Black Leopards and AmaZulu but held up by a slightly better goal difference.

The Western Cape outfit won the reverse fixture 2-0 thanks to goals from Waseem Isaacs and Iqraam Rayners back in October last year.

Here's how they line up:

Stellenbosch: 35. Langeveldt, 42. Mobbie, 13. Van Heerden, 5. Mthethwa, 16. Johannes, 12. Scott, 8. Matsi, 29. Moon, 17. Karuru, 10. Rayners, 21. Isaacs.

Subs: 31. De Jong, 18. Skelem, 7. Van Rooyen, 7. Moroole, 3. Ndlovu, 20. Robertson, 15. Bergman.

Polokwane: 1. Chigova, 2. Mvelase, 24. Hlongwane, 23. Hlatshwaup 28. Nthatheni, 6. Chauke, 15. Musona, 20. Phiri, 3. Anas, 14. Manaka, 13. Mahlahsela.

Subs: 50. Phali, 18. Maluleke, 26. Nkili, 10. Tlolane, 4. Nene, 8. J.Maluleke, 9. Mashumba.
