Clinton Larsen, Golden Arrows

Clinton Larsen will be hoping to guide the Chilli Boys to a victory which would see his side move further away from the relegation zone.

They will face a SuperSport side who succumbed to a surprise 2-1 home defeat against Baroka FC which ended their three-match unbeaten run in the league.

Matsatsantsa are placed sixth on the league standings and they are only behind fifth-placed Kaizer Chiefs on goal-difference.

A victory over Chippa will see Kaitano Tembo's side move to fifth spot - three points behind third-placed Bidvest Wits with eight matches left.

SuperSport beat Chippa 2-1 at the Lucas Moripe Stadium earlier this season.

At the Peter Mokaba Stadium in the Limpopo Province, a rejuvenated Baroka FC side will play host to their provincial rivals Polokwane City.

Bakgaga's 2-1 victory over SuperSport ended their five-match winless run in the league having recorded four successive draws and a defeat.

The reigning Telkom Knockout Cup champions are currently placed 13th on the league standings - a point above the relegation play-off spot.

Wedson Nyirenda, Baroka FC

Wedson Nyirenda will be keen to mastermind a victory over Polokwane City which would see Baroka boost their chances of retaining their status in the elite.

They will face off with a struggling Polokwane City side, who extended their winless run to five matches in the league when they drew 1-1 with Kaizer Chiefs at home.

Rise and Shine are placed eighth on the league standings - three points above ninth-placed Highlands Park, but the former have two games in hand.

A win in the Limpopo Derby against Baroka will see Polokwane City cement their place in the top eight.

Polokwane City secured a 2-0 win over Baroka at the Peter Mokaba Stadium earlier this season.
