Polokwane City's players returned to training on Monday after being on compassionate leave following the death of defender Mogau Tshehla.
Tshehla, 26, passed away in a car crash last week and was laid to rest in Witbank on Friday.
Relegation-threatened Rise and Shine next face Baroka in the Limpopo derby at Peter Mokaba Stadium this Saturday (15h30).
"Yes, we are back at training and looking forward to the Limpopo derby on Saturday," said City spokesman Vusi Mtimane, who added that strikers Rodney Ramagalela and Rendani Ndou have recovered from their respective injuries.
"Everyone is back at training and we have a full squad to choose from. Our head coach will have a headache to choose his starting eleven. Any player chosen will do the job.
"We need to win this one and dedicate the win to our player Mogau Tshehla."
Bernard Molekwa's side are 14th on the Absa Premiership table with 22 points from 20 matches - a point above the drop zone, and five behind eighth-placed Bakgaga.
