Cape Town - Chippa United will look to end their winless streak in the Absa Premiership when they host Platinum Stars at Wolfson Stadium.

The Eastern Cape side has claimed 23 points from 12 home matches this season.

The Rustenburg side has claimed 18 points from 12 away matches this season.

Dikwena are placed third on the Absa Premiership log with 44 points from 25 matches.

Chippa have won both of their two previous home league matches against Stars.
