Cape Town - Black Aces will look to bounce back to winning form in the Absa Premiership when they host Chippa United at the Mbombela Stadium.

Aces saw their winning run cut to five matches when they were beaten 1-0 at University of Pretoria on January 24.

The Mpumalanga side has claimed 17 points from seven home matches this season.

AmaZayoni are placed third in the Absa Premiership log with 30 points from 15 matches.

Chippa claimed a second successive league win (and their third in four matches) when they beat Ajax Cape Town 3-1 at home on January 24.

The Eastern Cape side has claimed six points from as many away matches this season.

The Chilli Boys are placed sixth on the Absa Premiership log with 22 points from 15 matches.

In head-to-head stats, Aces and Chippa have met in three top flight league matches.

The Chilli Boys are undefeated in the sequence, with one win and two draws to their name.

Aces’ only previous home league match against Chippa ended in a 1-1 draw last season.

When the teams met earlier this season, the Chilli Boys claimed a 2-1 home win thanks to goals from Chabangu and Uzochukwu.

The teams’ three league meetings have produced nine goals.

Kick-off at 20:15 on Saturday.
