Moroka Swallows suffered a fifth defeat from their last six league matches when they were beaten 1-0 at home by SuperSport United in their last PSL outing.

The Soweto side has claimed six points from as many home matches this season and will be looking for nothing less than three points when they entertain the students from Pretoria.

The Dube Birds are placed 13th on the Absa Premiership log with 10 points from as many matches.

Steve Barker’s side broke a six-game winless streak with a brilliant 3-0 victory at home to Ajax Cape Town in their last PSL match. The Tshwane side has claimed six points from five away matches this season.

AmaTuks are placed 14th on the Absa Premiership log with nine points from 10 matches.

In head-to-head stats, Swallows and Tuks have met in four league matches since 2012/13.

The Pretoria team has two wins compared to the Birds’ one victory, while one match was drawn.

Swallows have won one and lost one of the two matches in which they have played host to Tuks.

Last season, the Dube Birds won their home match 1-0, while AmaTuks claimed revenge with a 2-1 victory in the return game in Tshwane.

Kick-off is at 18:00 on Saturday, November 22.
