Mamelodi Sundowns will look to bounce back from their shock 1-0 defeat to newcomers Polokwane City when they host Free State Stars at Loftus this evening.

A victory for Pitso Mosimane’s team will see them leapfrog above neighbours SuperSport United to second spot.

Sundowns could even go top of the log if Moroka Swallows fail to collect maximum points when they play Golden Arrows.

Swallows have had a great start to the season and could add to Arrows’ woes at King Zwelithini Stadium tonight.

The Polokwane side will be looking for their second consecutive win when they host struggling AmaZulu at Peter Mokaba Stadium.

AmaZulu have let in nine goals in their previous two games and it would be interesting to see if coach Craig Rosslee persists with goalkeeper Tapuwa Kapini.

After losing their first five games in the Absa Premiership, City seem to have found their footing, earning seven points in their last three games.

The arrival of Boebie Solomons has changed their fortunes and they will be looking to continue where they left off against Sundowns.

But all eyes will be on Sundowns tonight as they aim to redeem themselves.

After demolishing AmaZulu 7-1, ’Downs were brought down a peg by City. Mosimane joked that the Polokwane side had parked a bus in front of their goal.

Mosimane might make some changes to the team that lost that match as he was not happy with certain players.

Steve Komphela’s team also wants to bounce back from their defeat to Bidvest Wits.

After losing back-to-back games, the pressure is on Stars to get something out of this fixture.

All matches kick off at 7.30pm.
