Cape Town - Platinum Stars will look to claim an Absa Premiership ‘double’ over Kaizer Chiefs when the teams meet at Royal Bafokeng Stadium.

The Rustenburg side has claimed 17 points from nine home matches this season.

Dikwena are placed fifth on the Absa Premiership log with 34 points from 20 matches.

Chiefs have gone six matches unbeaten in the league and were held 1-1 at home by Polokwane City in their last outing on February 23.

The Soweto giants have claimed 18 points from 10 away matches this season.

The Amakhosi are placed third on the Absa Premiership log with 39 points from 21 matches.

In head-to-head stats, Chiefs and Stars have met in 25 league matches since 2003/04.

The Amakhosi have 10 wins compared to five for Dikwena, while 10 matches have been drawn.

Stars have won two of their 12 home matches against Chiefs, suffering six defeats in the process.
