PRETORIA : DStv Premiership leaders will look to get back to winning ways when they host Sekhukhune United in a crunch DStv Premiership clash on Saturday afternoon.

Be that as it may, the leaders will look to increase their lead at the top of the table when they welcome one of the most form teams in the league.

Sundowns, uncharacteristically failed to collect maximum points in their past two games, drawing 0 - 0 against Cape Town City before throwing a 2 - goal lead to city neighbors SuperSport United in a thrilling 2 - 2 Tshwane Derby draw.

The Brazilians are still unbeaten are the top of the table and have just conceded two goals in their 11 games and have accumulated a mammoth 27 points.

The Tshwane will be looking to become the first side to reach 30 points by collecting maximum points in this afternoon's clash.

Sekhukhune United's coach McDonald Makhubedu told SuperSport TV that they are not scared of Mamelodi Sundowns and will go to the clash to fight for three points.

Babina Noko are currently third on the log and have the second best defensive record in the league behind Sundowns.

The Johannesburg - based side have managed to accumulate 20 points and will be looking to move into second place and cut Sundowns points gap to 4 points.

The chasing pack will be hoping that Babina Noko will be a side to stop Masandawana from running away with the title before mid way through the season. 

SuperSport United, Stellenbosch and Royal AM will have one eye on the game in the nation's capital hoping for a positive result for Sekhukhune United
