Aces took their unbeaten run to seven matches with a goalless draw away to Mamelodi Sundowns in their last league outing and will be looking to secure all three points when they host Polokwane City.

The Mpumalanga based side has claimed seven points from their five home matches this season. Clive Barker's side are placed sixth on the log with 16 points from 10 matches.

Polokwane come into the match on the back of successive wins, with their 5-2 win over Free State Stars last time out being their biggest top flight win ever.

The Limpopo side has claimed nine points from their six away matches this season. The Rise and Shine are placed 12th on the Absa Premiership log with 10 points from as many matches.

In head-to-head stats, Aces and Polokwane have met in just two previous top flight matches.

Both of those encounters took place last season, with Rise and Shine winning 2-1 both home and away to complete a league ‘double’ over AmaZayoni.

Kick-off is at 15:30 on Saturday, November 22.
