The University of Pretoria will look to put themselves back in contention for a top half finish in the PSL season when they host Polokwane City at Tuks Stadium on Saturday evening.
AmaTuks will be confident at home, where they have claimed a solid 23 points from their 12 home matches so far this season.
The students went five games unbeaten before last weekend, where they suffered a narrow 2-1 defeat to fellow Pretoria side Mamelodi Sundonws and coach Steve Barker will be expecting a similar performance.
City, meanwhile, could climb above Free State Stars with a victory, should Stars lose to AmaZulu in Durban, in a simultaneous fixture on Saturday.
Rise and Shine broke a five-game losing streak in the league with a 1-1 draw at home to Free State Stars in their last Premiership outing, last weekend.
Boebie Solomons' side have been dismal on the road this season and are yet to win away from home, with just one point from 12 matches outside of Polokwane.
|DID YOU KNOW?|
- When the pair met earlier this season, City walked away with an emphatic 3-0 victory at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane.
