In the only ABSA Premiership League encounter to be played on Sunday, Polokwane City FC will host rivals Black Leopards FC at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium.

Polokwane City will be looking for revenge after they lost 1-0 to Leopards in the first round of the Absa Premiership.

They are currently sitting at position 6 with 37 points.

Coach Jozef Vukusic hopes the game will be entertaining for fans.

“I think we are prepared, we work a lot on tactic, game tactic and for fitness. I am worried, but for us it’s a game like other games, I hope it will be a good game for the fans.”

Meanwhile, Black Leopards FC coach Dylan Kerr says they have played two friendly games to maintain fitness and momentum during the recent FIFA break.

“The international break and Nedbank Cup can take some momentum away from the previous game played against Chippa, we played two good friendlies, very competitive friendlies and we did very well. You know we got a tough running now. We have five games in 20-days, we concentrate on Polokwane which is this coming Sunday, local derby. The game is going to be special to the people of Limpopo, so we going to hopefully win.”
