Kaizer Chiefs look to ex­tend un­beaten run

Observer on Saturday - - Sport -

- Kaizer Chiefs and Polok­wane City will bat­tle for three ABSA Premier­ship points as Amakhosi look to ex­tened their un­beaten run when they meet at Dur­ban’s Moses Mab­hida Sta­dium to­day.

This will be the first of two matches Chiefs will play be­hind closed doors.

The de­ci­sion comes on the back of Amakhosi be­ing found guilty by the Pre­mier Soc­cer League’s dis­ci­plinary com­mit­tee fol­low­ing the fan vi­o­lence that marred their Ned­bank Cup semi-fi­nal de­feat to Free State Stars at the same KZN World Cup venue in April.

Chiefs ex­tended their un­beaten run in the league to seven (but saw their win­ning streak of three games come to an end) when they were held 0-0 at High­lands Park on Tues­day. The Soweto gi­ants have recorded five draws thus far in 2018/19.

The Amakhosi have claimed just four points from three home matches this sea­son, though their last turn as hosts was a 2-0 win over AmaZulu in Septem­ber. This match will be the first of two Chiefs must play be­hind closed doors at the Dur­ban venue.

Polok­wane also ex­tended their un­beaten run to five matches with a 1-1 draw at home to Su­per­Sport United on Oc­to­ber 2. The Lim­popo club have taken 11 points from the last 15 avail­able.

Rise and Shine have taken just four points from three away matches this sea­son, though their last game on the road was a 1-0 win at Bid­vest Wits in Septem­ber.
