Rise and Shine are placed 11th on the Absa Premiership log with 13 points from 11 matches.

Kaizer Chiefs retained their unbeaten record in the league with a 1-1 draw at home to defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns on Saturday.

Their next three league opponents are Bidvest Wits, Orlando Pirates (both away) and Platinum Stars (home).
