Baroka FC will look to claim three Absa Premiership points when they host Highlands Park at Peter Mokaba Stadium on 29 August 2018, kick-off at 19h30 CAT.

Baroka come into the game having suffered their second league defeat of the season, a 2-0 loss away to Limpopo rivals Polokwane City on August 18.

Yet Bakgaga are unbeaten as a home team so far this term, beating Cape Town City 2-1 on August 8 and drawing 1-1 with Kaizer Chiefs on August 14 in their two games as hosts.

Highlands played to a third successive draw on their return to the top flight as they held 10-man Mamelodi Sundowns 0-0 in Tshwane on August 22.

The Lions of the North have drawn at both Orlando Pirates and the Brazilians in their two away matches thus far in 2018/19.

In head-to-head stats, Baroka and Highlands have met in two previous top flight league matches. Both encounters took place in the 2016/17 season, with the Lions of the North claiming a 2-1 home win, while the return game with Bakgaga as hosts ended in a goalless stalemate.

Baroka’s line-up from their 2-0 loss to Polokwane on August 18: Dlamini, Kgoetyane, Madubanya, Banda, Gebhardt (Patjie 66'), Chawapiwa, Makume, Mdatsane, Kgaswane (Matloga 45'+1), Moseki (Shabani 55'), Chivaviro.

Highlands’ line-up from their 0-0 draw with Sundowns on August 22: Kapini, Mokoena, Sibande, Motsepe, Mofokeng (Versuur 61’), Mahlangu (Motlafi 68’), Rae (Mbunjana 81’), Haoseb, Mvala, Mbatha, Nyembe.
