Cape Town - SuperSport United will be looking to put an end to Kaizer Chiefs' unbeaten run in the Absa Premiership when the two teams lock horns on Tuesday night.

The Pretoria versus Johannesburg clash takes place at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane.

SuperSport head into the game boosted by a 1-0 victory over Black Aces, with New Zealand international Jeremy Brockie's first goal for SuperSport taking the Tshwane side up into the top eight.

Chiefs meanwhile were involved in CAF Champions League action on the weekend, beating Botswana side Township Rollers 2-1 in a preliminary first leg game.

AmaKhosi's most recent league action came last Wednesday, when they were left frustrated after a 0-0 draw away to Bloemfontein Celtic, although the Soweto side still enjoy a 13 point lead over second placed Mamelodi Sundowns.

For Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter, squad rotation could become crucial as he seems his side competing on three fronts over the next few weeks, with Absa Premiership, Nedbank Cup and Champions League football all in the diary.

He would thus have been pleased to see fringe player Mathew Rusike getting on the score-sheet on the weekend, as well as the turn to the side of goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune; apart from striker Katlego Mphela, Baxter has a full strength squad to select from.

The same cannot be said of SuperSport United coach Gordon Igesund, who has some key players out such as Lebogang Manyama and Daine Klate, although former Chiefs striker Kingston Nkhatha will be available again after missing the last match through suspension.

Kick-off is at 19:30.
