Relegation survival is continuing in the Absa Premier Soccer League, with AmaZulu hosting Polokwane City and struggling Moroka Swallows battling it out with Chippa United at the Nelson Mandela Bay stadium on Wednesday night.
Amazulu are rocked bottom in the log and are wounded after their 1-0 loss to Kaizer Chiefs on Tuesday night. They are set to face a rejuvenated Polokwane City who are fighting for a top eight finish.
A win for Amazulu will see them jump up to the 14th spot and ease down their relegation woes.
“We don’t want to go to the last game of the season hoping other teams lose, what’s important is to get the job done for ourselves,” said Amazulu coach Steve Barker.
The other relegation battle will see Moroka Swallows visiting fellow struggler’s Chippa United. The Port Elizabeth based side have not won a single game in their last five matches, but the Chilli boys caretaker coach Mich D Avary is confident that he will save the team from relegation.
“ This clash will be like a cup final considering that swallows are in the same situation like ourselves, we will have to fight very hard to survive,” said D Avary.
The other matches see defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns welcoming Bloemfontein Celtic, Black Aces hosting Maritzburg, while Supersport United are away to Platinum Stars at Royal Bafokeng stadium.
