Chippa United will look to break their losing streak in the Absa Premiership when they host Jomo Cosmos at Buffalo City Stadium on 6 February 2016, kick-off at 20h15.

Chippa suffered a second successive loss when they went down 3-0 away to Mamelodi Sundowns on February 2.

The Eastern Cape side has claimed 16 points from nine home matches this season.

The Chilli Boys are placed seventh on the Absa Premiership log with 22 points from 17 matches.
