Cape Town - Polokwane City and Orlando Pirates will both look to return to winning form in the Absa Premiership when they meet at Peter Mokaba Stadium.

Polokwane suffered their second league defeat of the season when they went down 2-1 away to Ajax Cape Town on September 12.

The Limpopo side has claimed four points from their two home matches so far this season.

Rise and Shine are placed 12th on the Absa Premiership log with four points from as many matches.

Pirates were held to a 1-1 draw by Black Aces on September 18 in their most recent outing.

The Soweto side has lost both of their two away matches so far this season.

The Buccaneers are placed ninth on the Absa Premiership log with four points from as many matches.

In head-to-head stats, Polokwane and Pirates have met in four league matches since 2013/14.

The Buccaneers have three wins compared to one for Rise and Shine, while zero matches have been drawn.

Polokwane’s two home matches against Pirates have produced a 1-0 win and a 3-0 loss for them.

Last season Bucs did a league ‘double’ over Rise and Shine, winning 3-0 both in Limpopo and the return game in Soweto.

The teams have yet to play a match against each other in which they both find the back of the net.

Kick-off is at 19:30 on Tuesday, September 22.
