Cape Town - Platinum Stars will look to continue their strong form in the Absa Premiership when they travel to University of Pretoria at Tuks Stadium.

University of Pretoria saw their winless streak extended to five matches when they held Ajax Cape Town 0-0 away on October 21.

The Tshwane side has claimed three points from as many home matches this season.

AmaTuks are placed 14th on the Absa Premiership log with five points from seven matches.

Stars retained their unbeaten record when they played to a 2-2 draw away to Black Aces on October 21.

The Rustenburg side has claimed eight points from four away matches this season.

Dikwena are placed second on the Absa Premiership log with 15 points from seven matches.

In head-to-head stats, Tuks and Stars have met in six league matches since 2012/13.

Dikwena have two wins compared to one for the Tshwane team, while three matches have been drawn.

Tuks’ three home matches against Stars have seen them record one win, one draw and one loss.

Last season Dikwena took four points off AmaTuks, drawing 0-0 at home before claiming a 1-0 win in the return game in Pretoria.

The teams’ six league meetings have produced just seven goals.

Kick-off is at 15:30 on Sunday, November 1.
