Note, odds quoted are an approximate average and are correct at the time of last update but are subject to change
The Team of Choice have won 4 of their last 6 league outings at home to move into the top 4 so this is quite a test for Polokwane who remain in trouble despite a useful away win last time out.
Still, the visitors will take heart from victory and a clean sheet in their most recent road trip and I give them a shout of taking a point, an outcome they are no strangers to.
Bet: Match Result Draw at 23/10
