South African football fans can look forward to six successive days of Absa Premiership matches, starting from tomorrow (Tuesday)

While most of the country is heading into vacation mode during school holidays and the approaching Easter weekend, that will not be the case for the PSL’s 16 teams.

Tuesday 11 April is the busiest day on the immediate calendar, with four matches played across the country. Title-chasing Bidvest Wits will have the chance to jump to the top of the log when they host Golden Arrows, while Orlando Pirates will look to end a winless streak in the league which stretches back to November last year when they tackle Maritzburg United.

Wednesday sees Kaizer Chiefs looking to continue their strong league form when they face Bloemfontein Celtic in the Free State, while the clash of Ajax Cape Town and Highlands Park in the Mother City is a relegation six-pointer.

Thursday is headlined by the Tshwane derby between Mamelodi Sundowns and SuperSport United, while Cape Town City will face a test of their title credentials when they face Platinum Stars in Rustenburg.

The action continues with five further games spread from Friday to Sunday, including fixtures for Chiefs and Pirates on Saturday, while Mamelodi Sundowns will continue catching up games when they play away to Free State Stars on Sunday.
