Cape Town - Polokwane City and Kaizer Chiefs will battle for three Absa Premiership points when they meet at Peter Mokaba Stadium.

Polokwane suffered their first loss of the new season when they were beaten 3-0 at University of Pretoria on August 22.

The Limpopo side’s previous home match was a 3-2 win over Bloemfontein Celtic in the opening round.

Rise and Shine are placed 10th on the Absa Premiership log with three points from two matches.

Chiefs recorded their first win of the new league season when they crushed Free State Stars 4-0 on August 22.

The Soweto giants’ previous away match was a goalless draw at Chippa United in the opening round.

The Amakhosi are placed first on the Absa Premiership log with four points from two matches.

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

The Amakhosi boast an unbeaten record in the sequence, with three wins to their name and one draw.

Polokwane’s two previous home league matches against Chiefs were a 2-0 defeat and a goalless draw.

Last season the Amakhosi took four points off Rise and Shine, drawing 0-0 in the Limpopo province before winning the return game 4-1 in Soweto.

The Glamour Boys clinched the 2014/15 Absa Premiership title in their last match against Polokwane.
