Teams: Polokwane City v AmaZulu
Date: 6 November 2013
Venue: Old Peter Mokaba Stadium
New boys Polokwane City host AmaZulu in Wednesday’s Absa Premiership clash at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium.
The hosts will be hoping for a victory to move within one point of their opponents from Durban after being without a win just over a month ago, but Rise and Shine bounced back with victories over Ajax Cape Town and Sundowns to move themselves off the bottom of the Premier Soccer League table.
Craig Rosslee’s men however will be looking to pick up a third away win of the season and also bounce back from consecutive defeats after suffering 7-1 and 2-0 defeats to Mamelodi Sundowns and Maritzburg United respectively.
The home side will welcome back Malawi international striker Esau Kanyenda who has recovered from a broken hand and will give their attacking chances a boost.
