Downs welcome City to Loftus


Mamelodi Sundowns have returned from Durban and continue with their busy December schedule as they prepare to host Polokwane City on Saturday evening.

Downs enter the tie after a hard-fought 1-1 draw with Bidvest Wits played on Tuesday night at Moses Mabhida Stadium.

The recently-crowned Telkom Knockout champions have a mixed record against Saturday’s opponents, with 1 win, 1 loss and 1 draw in their last three league encounters against Polokwane.

The most recent affair between the two was a 1-1 draw played in February 2019.

Polokwane City enter Saturday’s tie with no wins from their last eight league games, their most recent outing against Maritzburg United ending in a 1-0 defeat on December 8.

Saturday’s tie will be The Brazilians’ last league fixture of 2019 and they will look to end the year on a high with a win to help close the gap on to the top of the table.

Kick-off from Loftus Versfeld is at 18:00.
