Stellenbosch FC will play host to Moroka Swallows FC in a DStv Premiership match to be played at the Danie Craven Stadium on Tuesday. Kick-off is at 7.30pm CAT.
Stellies stretched their winless run to three matches in the league when they drew 0-0 with a stubborn Lamontville Golden Arrows side away over the weekend.
Therefore, the Western Cape side is occupying the 11th spot on the DStv Premiership standings - three points behind third-placed SuperSport United.
Meanwhile, Swallows saw their two-match unbeaten run in the league come to an end when they succumbed to a 1-0 defeat to Richards Bay at home on Friday.
As a result, the Soweto giants find themselves placed eighth on the DStv Premiership standings - three points behind third-placed SuperSport.
Stellenbosch will be without the services of Thabo Moloisane who is suspended, but Steve Barker's side will welcome back Devin Titus back from suspension.
Swallows, on the other hand, have no suspension concerns, but their key striker Tshegofatso Mabasa is one yellow card away from suspension.
