Cape Town - Golden Arrows will look to avoid a third successive Absa Premiership defeat when they host Polokwane City at Chatsworth Stadium.

Arrows recorded a second straight loss in the league when they were beaten 3-2 at Bidvest Wits on November 21.

Rise and Shine are placed 11th on the Absa Premiership log with 12 points from 11 matches.

In head-to-head stats, Arrows and Polokwane have met in two previous top flight league matches.

Both of those encounters took place in the 2013/14 season, with Abafana Bes’thende claiming a ‘double’ thanks to victories both home (3-2) and away (2-1).
