Coach Steve Barker will be looking at Uganda cranes striker, Geoffrey Massa when their Pretoria University team locks horns with Super Sport United in the South African top flight this weekend.

University of Pretoria, meanwhile, have gone four matches without a league win and held Dikwena FC to a goalless draw last time out.

University of Pretoria captain Tebogo Monyai admits his side are struggling at the moment and in desperate need of all three points from the Tuks stadium.

“Obviously we are struggling big time, from now on every game is do or die for us,” Monyai told
“You look at Super Sport United after the appointment of Gordon Igesund and they have won all three of their matches under him, they are in a very good space at the moment.
“We are looking to win this match to turn our fortunes around, but it won’t be easy, we have never beaten SuperSport since our promotion to the Premiership. We are close to the bottom of the table, making this a must win game for us”. Monyai added.

Elsewhere, Ivan Bukenya will be looking forward to helping Kaizer Chiefs eclipse the all-time Absa Premiership league record for longest domestic winning run when they travel to Ajax Cape Town on Sunday.

Bukenya has this season seen Chiefs claim 12 wins in a row in all competitions, – seven in the league, four enroute the MTN8  triumph and a recent win over Maritzburg United in the Telkom Knockout. Chiefs are at top of the table with 21 points, 14 points above second placed Ajax Cape town.

In the other games, Denis Masinde Onyango’s Mamelodi Sundowns, which are 4th on the table with 13 points, will be up against 3rd placed BV Witts on Sunday.

While Boban Zirintusa’s Polokwane City will be set to travel away to Bloemfontein Celtic on Sunday. Polokwane is 15th on the log with four points collected from seven games.
