Cape Town - Golden Arrows will look to end Black Aces’ unbeaten run in the Absa Premiership when the teams meet at King Zwelithini Stadium.

Arrows picked up their second win of the season when they beat Mamelodi Sundowns 2-1 at home on September 12.

The Durban side has won both of their two home matches so far this season.

Abafana Bes’thende are placed seventh on the Absa Premiership log with seven points from four matches.

Aces racked up a fourth unbeaten match when they held Orlando Pirates 1-1 away on September 18.

The Mpumalanga side has picked up four points from their two away matches so far this season.

AmaZayoni are placed fifth on the Absa Premiership log with eight points from four matches.

In head-to-head stats, Arrows and Aces have met in six league matches since 2009/10.
