AmaTuks v Polokwane In Numbers

Absa Premiership: University of Pretoria vs. Polokwane City

Date: 5 April 2014

Time: 18h00

Venue: Tuks Stadium

Steve Barker’s AmaTuks side host relegation-threatened Polokwane City at the Tuks Stadium in a PSL game on Saturday evening.

Boebie Solomon’s City team will be desperate to pick up three points against 11th placed Tuks, but will not have it easy in Pretoria, as Barker will still be hoping for a top eight finish, but they will need to win games like this one to challenge the other contenders.
