Kaizer Chiefs welcome Polokwane City to the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on Saturday evening for an Absa Premiership match.
Amakhosi are looking to put their disappointing 0-0 draw against Highlands Park on Tuesday behind them and get back to claiming three points.
The Lions of the North halted Chiefs’ run of three successive wins with their impressive display that led to the sides having to settle for a share of the spoils.
Despite their efforts as they seek to get back to winning ways, Chiefs will be playing in front of an empty stadium after been ordered by the league to do so following the fan violence that erupted at the same venue following the Glamour Boys’ shock Nedbank Cup semi-final defeat to Free State Stars last season.
The home side have been boosted with some positives after the club clean sweeped at the monthly PSL awards on Thursday where Giovanni Solinas and Khama Billiat were both named Coach and Player of the Month for September respectively.
Solinas and his men could see themselves temporarily topping the league standings should they come away with all the three points.
Rise and Shine have been on a good run of late, picking up four points after their last outing ended in a 1-1 draw against SuperSport United.
They also achieved the unthinkable when they beat table-toppers Bidvest United 1-0 in their own backyard despite playing much of that game with 10 men.
Last season Chiefs took four points from Rise and Shine in their home and away league ties.
In the first round fixture in Polokwane, the sides played to 0-0 draw before Chiefs walked away 2-1 victors in the home tie in Johannesburg.
