Derby H2H: Mabasa, Nurkovic battle tight


This weekend’s Absa Premiership Soweto Derby produces some interesting head-to-head battles, with offering a look into that of Samir Nurkovic and Tshegofatso Mabasa.

Nurkovic has settled in quickly since joining Chiefs at the start of the season, and the same goes for Mabasa at Pirates, so naturally lots will be expected from the supporters on Saturday.
