JOHANNESBURG – FOLLOWING a week of none action due to the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) sanctioned international games, South Africa’s Absa Premiership league competition resumes on Saturday with all teams in action.

Premiership log pacessetters, Kaizer Chiefs, get the ball rolling when they host University of Pretoria at FNB Stadium in Soweto.

Amakhosi, who are boasting 15 points from five outings, look forward to extending their lead on top of the league log standing while University of Pretoria are eager to collect three set of points.

A defeat on Saturday for the University of Pretoria would threaten their coach’s position at the club as well as pushing the club to the brink of relegation zone in these early stages of the first round of the league games.

On the other hand, any victory for Chiefs would extend their lead to 18 points from six league matches, a development that would positively shape well their destiny to win the 2014/2015 Premiership title.

Elsewhere, rekindled Orlando Pirates are hosting a formidable but stubborn Bidvest Wits at Orlando Stadium in Soweto.

Both sides are on top form and also hungry for success.

Wits are on third position of the 16-team league log standing while Pirates, commonly called Buccaneers lie fifth on the log, but with their latest resurgent, the Soweto giants are equally proving unstoppable.

In KwaZulu Natal, Maritzburg United will entertain Mpumalanga Black Aces at Harry Gwala Stadium in Maritzburg in a match difficult to predict.

In Pretoria, SuperSport United will host Platinum Stars at Lucas Moripe Stadium.

Both sides have not been playing well making predictions of their outcomes a bit difficult.

In Limpopo, Polokwane City entertain AmaZulu at Old Peter Mokaba Stadium while third placed Ajax Cape Town will host Free State Stars.

On Sunday, 14, fourth placed Moroka Swallows will host struggling Chippa United at Dobsonville Stadium while Bloemfontein Celtic will entertain the defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns at Free State Stadium in a match the promises fireworks.
