Cape Town - Golden Arrows will mark their return to Absa Premiership football when they welcome University of Pretoria to the Chatsworth Stadium.

Arrows won the National First Division last season, recording 60 points from 30 matches to earn promotion back to the top flight.

The Durban side went undefeated in their last 16 league matches of the season, with their most recent defeat a 5-1 loss to Cape Town All Stars in December 2014.

University of Pretoria ended last season in 13th place, with 32 points from 30 matches.

The Tshwane side failed to win any of their last nine matches of the campaign, claiming just three points from 27 available.

In head-to-head stats, Arrows and Tuks have met in four top flight league matches since 2012/13.

AmaTuks have claimed three wins compared to one for Abafana Bes’thende, while no matches have ended in draws.

Arrows have lost both of their two previous home league matches against the University-based side.

When the teams last met in the 2013/14 season, the Pretoria side claimed a league ‘double’ by winning 2-0 at home and 4-2 in KwaZulu-Natal.

Only one of the four league matches between the teams has seen a home side claim all three points.

The match is scheduled for Sunday, August 9.

Kick-off is at 15:00.
