Rustenburg – Platinum Stars will be looking to put a dent in Kaizer Chiefs’ early title festivities when they face Maritzburg United on Wednesday.

A win for the Crocodiles will stop Amakhosi from claiming the title on Wednesday should they beat Ajax Cape Town. And should the Urban Warriors beat the log leaders, and Stars are successful in their game, it’ll close the gap to three points with two games remaining.

Platinum Stars squandered their chance of whittling down Chiefs’ lead, having played to a goalless draw on Sunday, and with so few games left, they can't afford anything less than maximum points.

The Crocodiles should seal the victory against Maritzburg, The Team of Choice have struggled in their recent outings having lost two and drawn three; and the last time these sides met in December 2012, Stars took away the points with a 1-0 victory.

Platinum Stars have had a good run of form recently, winning three from five, with two draws.

Kickoff is 19h30 from the Royal Bafokeng Stadium.
