Read: Chippa look to bounce back
Chippa have not won once in their last eight games, and were
defeated 2-0 by Ajax Cape Town last Friday. They also lost 3-1 against
Polokwane when they visited the Peter Mokaba Stadium in December, but will be
hoping to get an elusive win on home soil.
Polokwane also lost their previous outing, 3-1 to Orlando
Pirates at Orlando Stadium, but they are a respectable sixth in the Premiership
table and will be hoping to beat the Chilli Boys for the second time this
Chippa United’s James Okwuosa, Ruben Cloete, Thamsanqa
Sangweni, Ugonna Meshark Uzochukwu, and William Nkululeko Twala are all at risk
of missing the next game through suspension, should they pick up another
Cole Alexander, Joseph Musonda, and Puleng Tlolane are in
the same situation for Polokwane City.
Looking ahead to the clash, Chippa United's Chief Operations
Officer, Lukhanyo Mzinzi said: "This is a crucial match for us and I hear
the talk that because Papic was with us, they stand a good chance of walking
away with a win.
"No, that's not the case - we cannot afford to let them
win again. We took an early lead in Polokwane, but lost 3-1 so we've learned
from our past two games.
"We're at home and we know they're an open book, they
attack and will give us a chance to exploit the spaces. I foresee an
interesting match and one we want to win because we're at home."
