Matsatsantsa are arguably the more confident of the two,
having been the ones to end Kaizer Chiefs' unbeaten start to the Premiership
season after carving out a 2-0 win in Pretoria last week.
That result made it four matches without defeat for the
Tshwane giants, having won three and drawn one to hoist themselves to sixth in
the standings, although they remain some seven points off the pace of the top
Polokwane, meanwhile, have been no slouches themselves and
sit one place and one point above their upcoming opponents after winning two
and drawing one of their last three league outings.
On the team front, SuperSport will hand late fitness tests
to Lebogang Manyama, who missed the win over Amakhosi through
injury, but January signings Jeremy Brockie and Kingston Nkhatha are both fit
Neither United nor City have any suspension concerns to deal
with, while the latter have reported no fresh injury worries, although coach
Kosta Papic could look to rotate his squad as he looks to balance the league
Kick-off is at 19:30 on Wednesday, February 25.
