The Glamour Boys have blown away the opposition this season and continued their unbeaten start with a 3-0 win over Golden Arrows on Tuesday, taking the side four clear at the summit while also seeing them pick up a cheque for R1.5million after finishing the first quarter of the term as Premiership leaders.

The midweek victory marked their sixth of the season, while their other three matches have ended in draws, and a win over Matsatsantsa this weekend could take them seven clear of second-placed Orlando Pirates, who play Free State Stars earlier the same day.

United, meanwhile, solidified their tag as this season's draw specialists after recording their eighth stalemate of the campaign as they finished 2-2 against Chippa United on Tuesday.

That result left Gavin Hunt's men ninth in the standings, and although undefeated this term they sit some 10 points off the top of the table.

The Tshwane giants did, however, show their killer instincts in the Telkom Knockout last weekend as they saw off Maritzburg United 2-0 to book their place in the semi-finals.

Matthew Rusike could be handed another start for Chiefs after impressing on his full debut against Arrows, with the striker telling his club's official website: "It was a great experience to make my debut and make a contribution in the team.

"I took all the positives that came out with it. We took all the three points which was very important.

"I am just going to continue working hard, fight for a place in the starting eleven and play well, chances will come."

SuperSport, meanwhile, are boosted by the returns of Mor Diouf and Franklin Cale, who both sat out the midweek tie following their respective red cards a fortnight ago.
