Two potential thrillers are confirmed for Polokwane and Welkom when table-topping National First Division sides in the inland and coastal streams clash on Sunday.

In the inland stream Winners Park will confront AmaTuks at Peter Mokaba Stadium, while Carara Kicks will entertain free-scoring African Warriors in a coastal stream Free State derby at Griffons rugby stadium.

Both matches kick off at 3pm.

AmaTuks are perched at the summit of the table with 26 points from 13 games, while Badumedi are second only on goal difference.

Winners Park will miss midfield marshal Moses Kwena, who is expected to be replaced by the newly signed Sipho Sephadi .

AmaTuks' preparations for the game have been disrupted by news from their camp that first choice goalkeeper Siya Mngoma is out after getting a knock at training. Right-back Goodman Sauhatsi is also suspended.
