Teams: Polokwane City v Kaizer Chiefs
Date: 16 April 2014
Venue: Peter Mokaba Stadium
Kaizer Chiefs will be looking to bounce back from defeats in their last two league games when they travel to the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Wednesday night to take on Polokwane City in an Absa Premiership match.
The game is scheduled to get underway at 19h30.
The Amakhosi come into this game off the back of a 2-0 win over SuperSport United in a Nedbank Cup quarterfinal match this past weekend, but will be looking to improve on their league form.
Chiefs’ last two league games saw them suffer 1-0 defeats to Mamelodi Sundowns and MP Black Aces.
This has seen the drop from the summit of the table into second place with 52 points from 25 league games, three points behind leaders Sundowns but having played a game less.
A win for the Amakhosi combined with a loss for the Brazilians, who face Aces also on Wednesday night, will see the Soweto-based club back to the top of the standings.
Polokwane, on the other hand, will be looking to extend the gap between themselves in 14th place and that of the relegation zone.
Polokwane are three points above second from bottom Golden Arrows and will be going all out to extend that to six points when they face Chiefs.
Moreover, Polokwane come into this game on a high as they are unbeaten in three league matches and were held to a 1-1 draw by Maritzburg United in their last league outing.
In head-to-head stats, Polokwane and Chiefs have met in just one previous top flight league match.
That encounter took place earlier this season, with the Amakhosi claiming an emphatic 4-1 home victory.
