Teams: Chippa United v Black Leopards
Date: 12 May 2021
Venue: Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium
Chippa United will look to bounce back from the Nedbank Cup final defeat when they host Black Leopards in the DStv Premiership's relegation battle on Wednesday afternoon.
The match will kickstart at 15h00
Chippa lost the opportunity to win their first silverware after a 1-0 defeat to Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila in the Nedbank Cup final over the weekend.
Before the Nedbank Cup final, the Chilli Boys had won back-to-back matches against Kaizer Chiefs and Stellenbosch in the league.
Vladislav Heric's charges are in the relegation play-off spot, just one point behind TTM and Maritzburg United, and victory could take them up to 12th on the log, depending on other results.
On the other hand, Lidoda Duvha's chances of surviving relegation were severly dented after a 3-0 loss to Orlando Pirates last Thursday.
Leopards face an uphill battle to avoid automatic relegation to the GladAfrica Championship, as they sit at the bottom of the log, six points behind Chippa.
The Chilli Boys will be chasing a league double over Lidoda Duvha after thrashing them 3-0 in January this year at Thohoyandou Stadium.
