Kaizer Chiefs are set to travel to the Danie Craven Stadium where they are scheduled to face Stellenbosch FC on January 23 in a PSL clash.
This will be the fifth meeting between the two teams across all competitions since 2017.
Chiefs have dominated this fixture having recorded three wins, while one match ended in a draw. 
The last time the two teams met in the league was on 23 August 2020 and they drew 1-1 at the Orlando Stadium.
Gavin Hunt, the Chiefs head coach, has highlighted the hectic schedule his team will endure in the coming days.
“Our home record has been a disaster this season, so we are back at FNB Stadium on Tuesday [against TTM], and hopefully we can try to turn it around,” Hunt said.
“It will take a big effort [to turn it around]. We will only get back tomorrow [yesterday], so we only have Monday, and there is no training, and then we play on Tuesday. 
"Then we come back here on Saturday [to face Stellenbosch], it is crazy." 
Chiefs' arch-rivals, Orlando Pirates be away to Maritzburg United at the Harry Gwala Stadium on January 23.
The two teams will meet for the 30th time across all competitions since 2006.

Pirates have the upper hand as they have registered 16 wins compared to Maritzburg's six victories, while seven games ended in a draw.
Their last meeting in the league was on 2 September 2020 and Pirates secured a 1-0 win over Maritzburg at the Lucas Moripe Stadium. 
Meanwhile, Mamelodi Sundowns will square off with Swallows FC at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium on January 23.
This will be the 28th meeting between the two teams across all competitions since 2006.
Sundowns have the edge as they have recorded 13 wins compared to Swallows' seven, while seven matches ended in a draw.

The last time the two teams clashed in the league was on 10 February 2015 and it was Sundowns, who emerged 4-1 winners at the Lucas Moripe Stadium.
Lastly, Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM) will take on SuperSport United at the Thohoyandou Stadium on January 24.
