Tuks have gone six matches without defeat, with their latest result a 1-1 draw away to Free State Stars earlier this month.

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

Their next three league opponents are Maritzburg United, Platinum Stars (both home) and SuperSport United (away).

AmaTuks are placed 10th on the Absa Premiership log with 23 points from 19 matches.

Aces’ 1-0 loss to SuperSport United earlier this month extended their winless run to five matches.

The Mpumalanga side has claimed 14 points from nine away matches this season, suffering just one defeat on the road.

Their next three league opponents are AmaZulu (home), Ajax Cape Town (away) and Moroka Swallows (home).

AmaZayoni are placed 12th on the Absa Premiership log with 22 points from 19 matches.

In head-to-head stats, Tuks and Aces have met in three league matches since 2013/14.

The Pretoria team boasts an unbeaten record in that sequence, with two wins and a draw.

Tuks’ only previous home match against Aces was a 2-0 win in the first half of last season.

When the teams met earlier this season in Mpumalanga, they played to a goalless draw.

Kick-off is at 15:30 on Saturday, February 28.
