Kaizer Chiefs can put one hand on the PSL trophy if they defeat Platinum Stars on Sunday afternoon in a season-defining clash at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.
Chiefs crushed Moroka Swallows 3-1 in their last outing and will look to inflict similar treatment on their surprise title rivals Platinum Stars.
However, Dikwena are the only side to have defeated Kaizer Chiefs this season and will take confidence from their last result against the league leaders.
The AmaKhosi could move up to 9 points ahead of Dikwena if they win on Sunday, which could be an unassailable lead with only three remaining match-days in the PSL.
If Cavin Johnson's side win the PSL title race may go down to the wire, as Stars will move within three points of Chiefs at the summit of the standings.
Itumeleng Khune will miss the clash due to suspension, with Arthur Bartman set to replace the inspirational shot-stopper for the match.
Enocent Mkhabela will miss out for Stars due to suspension, with neither side expressing any further injury concerns on the eve of the match.
