South Africa’s two biggest football clubs will both be targeting DStv Premiership morale-boosting wins in midweek ahead of the Soweto Derby.

Kaizer Chiefs, who have lost their last two league matches, are scheduled to play host to a rejuvenated Cape Town Spurs side in Wednesday’s game.

The match will be played in an empty FNB Stadium as Chiefs have been slapped with a stadium ban by the PSL due to spectator misbehavior.

However, fans will be allowed to attend Saturday’s Soweto Derby clash between Chiefs and their arch-rivals, Orlando Pirates at the same venue.

Pirates will be looking to snap a four-match winless run in the league when they square off with Sekhukhune United at the Orlando Stadium on Tuesday.

Sekhukhune will not be pushovers as they are determined to bounce back to winning ways after being eliminated from Carling Knockout by TS Galaxy over the weekend.

Meanwhile, SuperSport United will climb to the top of the league standings if they defeat Polokwane City in Wednesday’s match at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium.

Log leaders, Mamelodi Sundowns will be inactive in midweek as their game against AmaZulu FC has been postponed due to the former’s African Football League commitments.
