Baroka face Rise and Shine in Polokwane derby

Cape Town - The Woza Nazo campaign moves on to the Polokwane derby where Baroka FC and Polokwane City will go head-to-head for much-needed three points in an Absa Premiership clash.

The cross-town rivals will go into this shoot-out with all guns blazing to secure the maximum points with both teams searching for a win to turn around their poor form.

Baroka - who started the 2017/18 season strongly - currently sit in 9th position in the standings with Polokwane four points behind in 13th spot.

Bragging rights will be up for grabs with Baroka having gone three games without a win - while Polokwane have fared even worse by going winless in six games.

Rise and Shine's most recent defeat came in a Cup competition as Bernard Molekwa's men suffered the embarrassment of being knocked out by minnows Ubuntu Cape Town.

Bakgaga have also been in recent turmoil as coach Kgoloko Thobejane has been suspended by the club as they look to address a poor run of form in the new year.

The Limpopo outfit made an impressive start to the new campaign, going unbeaten in the league until October 22, but they have won just twice since then to fall out of contention for the title.
