SuperSport United will lock horns with Polokwane City in an Absa Premiership match at Bidvest Wits Stadium on Wednesday.
The encounter is scheduled to start at 15:30.
A win for ‘Matsatsantsa’ will see them move into third place on the log standings, a CAF Confederations Cup qualification spot, while for ‘Rise and Shine’ it will boost their survival hopes as they are flirting with relegation in 15th place.
In what was their first game in the Gauteng Biological Safa Environment (BSE), SuperSport played out to a 1-1 draw against Bloemfontein Celtic over the weekend while Polokwane suffered a 3-2 defeat at the hands of leaders Kaizer Chiefs.
According to FARPost’s Opta Jabu, Polokwane have lost every one of their last nine league games played away.
However, a positive for the Limpopo side is the fact that Kaitano Tembo has faced Polokwane in four league matches, and hasn’t registered a win, since he started coaching SuperSport back in 2018, as caretaker.
