Black Leopards v Baroka

Black Leopards will be hoping to get their Premiership campaign up and running when they welcome fellow strugglers Baroka to Thohoyandou Stadium on Wednesday.

Joel Masutha's side are second from bottom in the table after picking up just one win from their opening six league encounters since winning promotion via the play-offs.

That solitary victory came in their first game of the season when they beat Polokwane City 1-0 in the Limpopo derby, with two draws and three straight defeats to follow.

Masutha will be seeking a response from Lidoda Duvha after going down 4-0 to SuperSport United last time out - their biggest loss of 2018/19 thus far.

Bakgaga haven't fared much better and find themselves just one point and three places better off than their local rivals.

Wedson Nyirenda's troops haven't tasted victory in their last six outings since seeing off Cape Town City 2-1 on August 8, although they snapped a two-match losing streak with a goalless draw against Free State Stars last week.

It's quite tight in the table, though, with three points for either team potentially lifting them into the top half, depending on results elsewhere.
