Can SuperSport get back on track?

Cape Town - Supersport United will be looking to get their Absa Premiership season back on track on Tuesday evening as they host an unpredictable Golden Arrows side at the Lucas Moripe Stadium.

Gordon Igesund's men who were tipped as strong title favourites have not won a league fixture since their opening day 1-0 victory against Orlando Pirates and find themselves at the wrong end of the table in 13th place.

Matsatsantsa currently sit on five points in 13th position after six fixtures, three points adrift of the newly-promoted Arrows, who occupy eighth position on the Premiership standings. 

After a 3-0 loss to Platinum Stars in Supersports last fixture, pressure has been mounting on Igesund after three losses and two draws in their last five league games, but a win against his former assistant Letsoaka's Arrows team could put them back into the top half of the table.

Abafana Bes'thende, who drew 0-0 with an in-form Celtic on Saturday in the only Premiership fixture of the weekend, will now look to gain momentum against a vulnerable looking Supersport side.

Arrows will undoubtedly feel confident of gaining a result after beating their Tshwane rivals Mamelodi Sundowns 2-1 earlier in the campaign courtesy of strikes from Mabhuti Khenyeza and Ryan Chapman respectively.

The two sides will face each other again in the last eight of the 2015 Telkom Knockout in Polokwane on Saturday.
