The Natal Rich Boys settled for a share of the spoils for the third time this season. Richards Bay, who were at their best, could only get a goal despite the barrage of chances created.
The result came after they surrendered to a loss on their ground when Chippa United carted away the maximum points. Richards Bay have managed five goals in their previous seven matches while conceding nine times and occupying the 15th spot on the log.

Expert Betting Tips
Both teams have won once, while a game ended in a deadlock over their previous three meetings. Even though Richards Bay's performances haven’t been reflected on the table, we can’t deny the fact that they’ve been playing well in recent weeks. We saw that against TS Galaxy and Chippa United. At the same time, Polokwane City have been more confident playing on their ground than away from home. We actually think this game will end in a stalemate, but we want to back the home side just because we have a feeling they’ll get at least a point here; bet on a home win or draw and over 1.5 goals for 2.20.
We expect Richards Bay to strike first for 1.82.
Richards Bay won’t keep a clean sheet, so we expect both sides to get a goal apiece here for 2.03.
