Polokwane City eye another win against SuperSport United, City target Wits scalp and AmaZulu and Maritzburg United battle in KZN Derby

The 2018/19 Premier Soccer League (PSL) action will resume on Tuesday following the 2018 MTN8 Cup final.

Polokwane City will be eyeing their third successive win in the league when they host SuperSport United at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium.

Rise and Shine extended their unbeaten run to four games with a 1-0 win over Bidvest Wits last week.

As a result, Polokwane City are placed sixth on the standings with 10 points from six games. They are three points behind second-placed Wits.

Rise and Shine will be without Zambian defender Salulani Phiri, who was sent off against the Clever Boys.

Polokwane City, Jabulani Maluleke

Polokwane head coach Jozef Vukusic will look to Jabulani Maluleke, who netted the only goal of the match as they beat Wits. 

The Limpopo-based side will face a wounded SuperSport United side that recently lost to Cape Town City in the MTN8 final.

Prior to facing City, Matsatsantsa had returned to winning ways in the league by thumping Black Leopards 4-0 at home almost two weeks ago.

The win took SuperSport to fifth place on the PSL log with 12 points from six games. They are two points behind log leaders Orlando Pirates.

James Keene, who netted twice against Leopards, is the dangerman for Kaitano Tembo's side. 

Meanwhile, newly crowned MTN8 champions Cape Town City will be oozing with confidence when they host Bidvest Wits at the Cape Town Stadium.

The Citizens will be keen to snap their five-match winless run in the league having drawn 2-2 with Pirates away in their last game in the competition over a week ago.

The draw left them in 10th position on the log with six points from six games. They are a point above the relegation play-off spot.

Ayanda Patosi, Cape Town City, September 2018

City head coach Benni McCarthy will be hoping that Ayanda Patosi produces another man of the match performance having played an important role as they fought back against Pirates.

The Citizens will take on a Wits side that is hoping to return to winning to ways in the league having lost 1-0 to Polokwane City at home.

The defeat left the Clever Boys in second position on the league standings. They are a point behind log leaders, Pirates.

Deon Hotto, who has hit the ground running since joining Wits from Celtic, will look to inspire his side to victory.

Lastly, AmaZulu FC will be desperate for a win when they take on their KwaZulu-Natal rivals Maritzburg United at the King Zwelithini Stadium.

Usuthu extended their winless run to three games in the league when they lost 2-0 to Kaizer Chiefs away almost two weeks ago.

The Durban-based side is placed 16th on the league table with one point from six games. They are four points behind 15th-placed Leopards.

Bonginkosi Ntuli, who is on loan at AmaZulu from Mamelodi Sundowns, has the ability to inspire his side to victory in the KZN Derby.

Bandile Shandu of Maritzburg United

Usuthu will face a rejuvenated Maritzburg side, who secured their first win of the season when they defeated Bloemfontein Celtic 1-0 away from home over a week ago.
