LINE UPS: Polokwane v Highlands


Polokwane City and Highlands Park have named their line-ups for today’s Absa Premiership clash at Loftus Versveld Stadium.

The encounter is scheduled to start at 15:30.

‘Rise and Shine’ will be looking register their first win since the resumption of football, and to move away from the bottom of the log standings.

On the other hand, the ‘Lions of the North’ will be eager to cement their place in the top eight with four games remaining.

Polokwane have the worst 100% record since the restart, losing both their games with a net score of -5. Unless results start to change and they add to their 23 points, they will be in danger of a first relegation since they were promoted.

Only two of the 11 sides that had 23 points or less at this stage of the season have finished higher than 15th since Polokwane City came into the top-flight in 2013.

Here is how the two sides will line up this afternoon.

Polokwane City XI: Chigova, Nkili, Buthelezi, Motloung, Chembezi, Manaka, Mvelase, Nene, Mashumba, Tlolane, Mahlasela.

SUBS: Phali, Semenya, Phiri, Chauke, Nku, Musona, Maluleka, Anas.

Highlands Park XI: Kapini, Mbhele, Makhaula, Fransman, Mbunjana, Mzava, Munyai, Nyatama, Shalulile, Mbatha, Jooste.

SUBS: Heugh, Motlafi, Ramagalela, Mogaila, Mokoena, Msimango, Mvala, Thalente, Rae.
