Cape Town - University of Pretoria and Maritzburg United will both look to turn their Absa Premiership seasons around when they meet at Tuks Stadium.

University of Pretoria suffered their fifth league loss when they went down 2-0 at home to Platinum Stars on November 1.

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

AmaTuks are placed 15th on the Absa Premiership log with five points from eight matches.

Maritzburg suffered an eighth successive loss when they went down 3-2 at home to Polokwane City on November 3.

The KwaZulu-Natal team has claimed zero points from four away matches this season.

The Team of Choice is placed 16th on the Absa Premiership log with one point from nine matches.

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

The teams have a dead-even record: one win apiece, four draws, five goals scored each.

Tuks have won one, drawn one and lost one of their three home matches against United.

Last season the Pretoria team took four points off their Pietermaritzburg rivals, drawing 0-0 in KwaZulu-Natal before claiming a 1-0 win in the reverse fixture.

The teams’ three meetings in Pretoria have produced eight goals compared to just two goals for their three meetings in Pietermaritzburg.

Kick-off at 15:30 on Sunday, November 8.
