Polokwane City Form & Team News

Polokwane are ninth in the PSL table after taking seven points from their last three matches. They were knocked out of the Cup last weekend though. 

A 2-1 victory away at Chippa United ended a six-match winless run. They eked out a valuable 0-0 draw at Mamelodi Sundowns and began 2024 with a 1-0 victory at Moroka Swallows. 

Their last match saw a 3-2 loss at Richards Bay in the Nedbank Cup. Polokwane conceded three times in a 40-minute spell. 

Polokwane City have Bafana Bafana winger Oswin Appollis available after suspension. Tlou Nkwe and Langelihle Ndlovu are available again at left back. 

Key right back Tholo Matuludi is set to be recalled after a partial rest.

Polokwane City Predicted Lineup

Sapunga; Matuludi, Nikani, Nkaki, Nkwe; Ramabu, Mashikinya, Kambala, Appollis; Mabena, Mapfumo.

Orlando Pirates Form & Team News

Pirates ended a three-match winless run last time out. They sit fifth in the PSL table with a five point gap to second spot and a game in hand. 

A 2-1 win at Golden Arrows was followed by a poor 3-1 loss at SuperSport. Pirates were 2-0 up at home to Stellenbosch and lost 3-2.

This year began with a 1-1 draw at Mamelodi Sundowns with ten men. Last weekend saw a confidence-boosting 6-0 win at lower league minnows Crystal Lake FC in the Nedbank Cup.

Coach Jose Riveiro remains without midfielder Miguel Timm due to suspension. Left back Paseka Mako is injured and Fortune Makaringe has a knock.

Deon Hotto and Phillip Ndlondlo are set for recalls in midfield for this one. 

Orlando Pirates Predicted Lineup

Chaine; Monyane, Ndah, Xoki, Maela; Ndlondlo, Monare; Hotto, Maswanganyi, Mofokeng; Makgopa.


I'm tipping Pirates to win this match with a clean sheet. I'm tipping a 2-0 correct score bet.
