Cape Town - University of Pretoria have switched venues for this Sunday’s Absa Premiership clash at home to high-flyers Mpumalanga Black Aces.

The fixture, which has significance at the top and bottom of the league, will now take place at Loftus Stadium after being moved away from the smaller AmaTuks Stadium.

No reason has been given by the club for the switch.

Black Aces are currently second on the Absa Premiership log, behind leaders Mamelodi Sundowns only on goal-difference, while AmaTuks are second bottom of the league.

Their current form makes Black Aces heavy favourites for the victory, but they go into the game knowing that history is against them.

The previous four top-flight meetings between the clubs have ended in three wins for AmaTuks and a draw, with Black Aces netting just a single goal in that time.
