Cape Town - Polokwane City will go in search of a hat-trick of Absa Premiership victories when they host Orlando Pirates at Peter Mokaba Stadium.

Polokwane claimed a second successive league win when they defeated Maritzburg United 1-0 away on September 27.

The Limpopo side has claimed four points from two home matches this season.

Rise and Shine are placed fifth on the Absa Premiership log with eight points from four matches.

Pirates recorded a second successive league draw when they were held 1-1 at home by Platinum Stars on September 27.

The Soweto giants have claimed three points from one away match this season.

The Buccaneers are placed third on the Absa Premiership log with eight points from four matches.

In head-to-head stats, Polokwane and Pirates have met in six league matches since 2013/14.

The Buccaneers have three wins compared to one for Rise and Shine, while two matches have been drawn.

Polokwane have recorded one win, one draw and one defeat from their three home league matches against Pirates.

Last season the teams shared the spoils as both of their league meetings ended in goalless stalemates.

The teams have yet to play a match against each other in which they both find the back of the net.

Kick-off is at 15:30 on Sunday, October 16.
