An Absa Premiership encounter against Cape Town City is up next for Polokwane City as pressure is mounting for the club’s head coach Clinton Larsen.
Following a string of poor results, which has seen the club losing six of their last eight games in the league, Rise and Shine have also been booted out of the Nedbank Cup.
Polokwane lost 1-0 to Limpopo rivals Baroka at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Tuesday evening in the Last 32 of the Nedbank Cup.
Going into the match against the Citizens at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium on Sunday, Larsen and his team will know that nothing less than a win is needed for them to keep any chance of avoiding relegation alive.
Polokwane are staring relegation in the face as they are 16th on the Absa Premiership log, with only five wins after 21 matches for the season.
