Starting XI: SuperSport v Polokwane
Absa Premiership Starting XI: SuperSport United Polokwane City 23 January 2018
Teams: SuperSport United v Polokwane City
Date: 23 January 2018
Venue: Lucas Moripe Stadium
Two teams lingering dangerously above the bottom-of-the-table scrap will face off when SuperSport United host Polokwane City at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Tuesday evening.
The match is scheduled to get underway at 19h30.
Matsatsantsa have been in dreadful form lately, but seemed to have stopped the rot when they beat high-flying Maritzburg United 1-0 last Wednesday. However, they were humbled once again on Saturday, losing 2-0 to AmaZulu.
Meanwhile, Rise and Shine produced a fantastic away performance in their weekend fixture against Orlando Pirates only to see Lyle Foster’s late equaliser force them to share the spoils in a 1-1 draw.
Bernard Molekwa was in good spirits after the match, but the one complaint he had was that his charges had lost concentration against the Buccaneers. He vowed that Polokwane City would improve in that department and the midweek game is a chance for the players to prove him right.
In Eric Tinkler’s side, they face a wounded opponent. However, SuperSport proved during their incredible run to the CAF Confederation Cup final that they are often at their best when their backs are against the wall.
Here's how they line up:
SuperSport: 1. Pieterse, 20. Kekana, 4. Daniels, 29. Gould, 2. Boateng, 8. Furman, 6. Letsholonyane, 13. Phala, 16. Modiba, 28. Mokoena, 10. Nkhatha.
Polokwane: 1. Chigova, 2. Semenya, 19. Ravhuhali, 5. Maponyane, 22. Mbonani, 21. Seabi, 17. Ramagalela, 14, Manaka, 35. Ndou, 8. Maluleke, 10. Tlolane.
