Thohoyandou Stadium plays host to the Vhembe Derby

THOHOYANDOU : The Vhembe Derby takes centre stage in Tuesday afternoon Glad Africa Championship matchday 5 fixtures.

Following Friday's win over Richards Bay away from home, Black Leopards return home to face noisy neighbors in the form of Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila on Tuesday afternoon.

Having temporarily moved to Polokwane, Leopards will return to a venue they all know too well in the Thohoyandou Stadium.

Playing as the away side on Tuesday afternoon will likely not have an effect on how Lidoda Duvha approach the Derby.

The impressive 2 - 0 away victory over the Natal Rich Boyz on Friday, will certainly have a positive impact in the camp of Leopards as they look to get one over their neighbors from Tshakhuma Village.

Morgan Shivhambu's charges head into the encounter, lying in 10th position with five points to their name and will be looking to break into the top three with a win and if other results go their way, they may very well be in the second position behind early season pacesetters Platinum City Rovers, who are on ten points.

Vhadau Vha Dhamani come into the clash at the back of three winless games.

TTM last tasted victory, ironically at the Thohoyandou Stadium in the opening week of the season, thrashing Cape Town All Stars 3 - 1.

It has been somewhat of a downward spiral after that having lost twice and now recently sharing the spoils with the log leaders Platinum City Rovers, 0 - 0 on Saturday afternoon at the same venue.

Currently occupying 12th position in the Glad Africa Championship table, TTM are well aware that three points will push them to the top half of the table and possibly into the top four bracket and go on top of their arch rivals, Venda Football Academy and today's opponents, Black Leopards.
