Absa wraps up its first Woza Nazo rivalry match of the second half of the Premiership season between Platinum Stars and Orlando Pirates.

Cape Town - Baroka FC and Polokwane City are gearing up ahead of their highly-anticipated Polokwane derby in the latest instalment of the Woza Nazo campaign.

The cross-town rivals will go into this Absa Premiership shootout with all guns blazing to secure maximum points with both teams searching for a win to turn around their poor form.

Baroka - who took the early stage of the 2017/18 season by storm - currently sit in eighth position in the standings with Polokwane five points behind in 14th spot.

Both teams have been putting in the hard yards in training in preparation for the weekend's clash with Baroka coming off a 0-0 draw against Chippa United, while Polokwane's fixture at the weekend against Bloemfontein Celtic was postponed.

In head-to-head stats neither team so far has managed to gain the upper hand having played to three draws since Bakgaga gained promotion to the top flight.

The action gets underway from the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday at 15:30.
