Cape Town - Polokwane City will look to return to winning form in the Absa Premiership when they host Bidvest Wits at the old Peter Mokaba Stadium on 9 March 2016, kick-off at 19h30.

Polokwane have gone four matches without a league, but at least managed a 1-1 draw away to Kaizer Chiefs on February 23 in their last outing.

The Limpopo side has claimed 17 points from 10 home matches this season.

Rise and Shine are placed 13th on the Absa Premiership log with 22 points from 21 matches.

Wits claimed a third win from their last four league matches when they beat Maritzburg United 2-1 away on February 24.

The Johannesburg side has claimed 19 points from 10 away matches this season.

The Clever Boys are placed second on the Absa Premiership log with 42 points from 21 matches.

In head-to-head stats, Wits and Polokwane have met in five league matches since 2013/14.

The Clever Boys have two wins compared to one for Rise and Shine, while two matches have been drawn.

Polokwane have yet to win at home to Wits in the league, with one draw and one loss from their two matches as hosts.

When the teams met earlier this season, the Clever Boys claimed an emphatic 5-0 home win in Johannesburg, with Keene scoring a hat-trick.

Wits’ 5-0 win was the biggest recorded by any team in the league this season.
