Highlands confirm full house for Chiefs

Premiership

The Lions of the North on Monday afternoon confirmed that tickets for their Absa Premiership clash against Amakhosi have been sold out.

The 15 000-seater venue is expected to accommodate 13 000 people tomorrow night, with 2 000 tickets not allowed to be sold due to safety restrictions.

Chiefs supporters are expected to flock to Tembisa as Giovanni Solinas's side looks to claim top spot on the standings after nine games.

Highlands recently suffered their first defeat of the season away to Free State Stars, while they have collected four points from a possible six at home this season.

Meanwhile, the Soweto giants are on a three-game winning streak in the league and have yet to suffer a defeat in five matches on the road.

In head-to-head duels, Chiefs have beaten Highlands with a 1-0 scoreline on both occasions that they've met previously, back in the 2016/17 season.

Fans without match tickets have since been warned not to enter the stadium precinct as to avoid any unfortunate incidents that might lead to safety threats.

It is expected that police will be out in full force to avoid any potential dangers, following the PSL's partnership struck with the authorities last month.

Kick-off of the clash is scheduled for 19h30.
