Kaizer Chiefs will chase a fifth successive Absa Premiership win when they host Highlands Parks at Moses Mabhida Stadium on 18 February 2017, kick-off at 18h00.

Chiefs claimed a fourth straight league win when they beat Maritzburg United 2-1 away on February 11.

The Soweto giants have claimed 17 points from nine home matches this season.

The Amakhosi are placed third on the Absa Premiership log with 30 points from 17 matches.

Highlands saw their winless streak in the league extended to four matches after a 1-1 draw with Polokwane City on February 12.

The Tembisa-based side has claimed three points from eight away matches this season.

The Lions of the North are placed 15th on the Absa Premiership log with 14 points from 17 matches.

In head-to-head stats, Chiefs and Highlands have met in just one previous top flight match.

That encounter took place earlier this season, with the Amakhosi claiming a 1-0 win at the Makhulong Stadium.
