The Rustenburg side has claimed 11 points from nine home matches this season.

Their next three league opponents are University of Pretoria (away), Maritzburg United and Ajax Cape Town (both home).

Dikwena are placed 15th on the Absa Premiership log with 18 points from 19 matches.

Swallows suffered a third successive league defeat in 2015 when they were beaten 2-0 at home by Bidvest Wits last month.

The Soweto side has claimed 11 points from nine away matches this season.

Their next three league opponents are Free State Stars (home), Black Aces (away) and Kaizer Chiefs (home).

The Birds are placed 14th on the log with 19 points from 20 matches.

In head-to-head stats, Stars and Swallows have met in 23 league matches since 2003/04.

The Birds have 14 wins compared to six for Dikwena, while just three matches have been drawn.

Stars have won five of their 11 home matches against Swallows, suffering five defeats in the process.

When the teams met earlier this season, a Mabena goal saw Dikwena claim a 1-0 win in Soweto.
