Tuks will look to climb up the PSL table when they take on AmaKhosi at the Mbombela Stadium on Saturday night

Tuks will welcome the newly crowned PSL champions Kaizer Chiefs at the Mbombela Stadium on Saturday. They need three points means otherwise the Tshwane side will miss out on the top eight.

For Chiefs, this game is all about honouring the fixture, because they will certainly lift the trophy regardless of the outcome on the day.

However, Stuart Baxter and his technical team would not want to get carried away as they still have the Nedbank Cup final to play, but Chiefs is expected to field their fringe players to avoid any sorts of injuries to their regular players.

Steve Barker has transformed Tuks into one of the stubborn sides in the league, and that was proven when they held Chiefs and Orlando Pirates to draws this season.

However, beating Chiefs on Saturday wouldn't bring any form of joy to the man who is hoping for a top eight finish.

Tuks did well to stay in touch with the front runners at the beginning of the season, but dropped vital point in the second half of the season as they are now out of the top eight teams with one game to go.

An interesting battle will be between Tuks' striker Mame Niang and Chiefs defender Tefu Mashamaite. The lanky striker has been in impressive form at the Tshwane outfit, netting 10 times so far this season, but he faces a tough challenge from Mashamaite who has been solid at the back and also has a few goals for himself this season.

Tuks will go into Saturday's encounter 10th on the log with 37 points from 29 games while Chiefs are the champions with 57 points from 29 games.


• Kaizer Chiefs have an unbeaten record of 15 games at home this season. They won eight and drew seven.

• Tuks have a remarkable goalscoring record of 33, putting them amongst the top five teams with the highest goals this season.

• In head-to-head stats, Tuks and Chiefs have met once in a game that ended in a 1-all draw.

• Tuks have recorded the second highest number of draws this season (16). SuperSport United have 17.

• Bernard Parker remains Chiefs top goalscorer with 12 goals, only two ahead of Tuks' Mame Niang.
