Cape Town - Golden Arrows will look to continue their strong form in the Absa Premiership when they host Chippa United at Chatsworth Stadium.

The Durban side has claimed 11 points from six home matches this season.

Abafana Bes’thende are placed fifth on the Absa Premiership log with 21 points from 13 matches.
