The last time TS Galaxy played at home, a fortnight ago, they left thousands of fans who had packed Kameelrivier Stadium with smiles on their faces after beating fellow National First Division newbies Maccabi FC 1 – 0 to register their second win this season.
Coming off a nil – all draw against Richards Bay FC last weekend, Galaxy will be looking to continue their good home form when they play hosts to University of Pretoria (UP) on Sunday afternoon.
While Galaxy are yet to secure victory on the road this season, they have proven to be a difficult side to beat at home. In six home matches this season Galaxy have won twice, drawn three times and only lost once.
If their home run is anything to go by, The Rockets have an advantage over UP heading into the Sunday encounter. However, the hosts will have their hands full against Tuks who will be looking to redeem themselves after a hefty 3 – 0 loss to log leaders Stellenbosch FC last weekend.
Only Sanele Barns won’t be available for Galaxy on Sunday due to a groin strain he sustained at training during the week.
The Rockets occupy the 11th spot on the log standings with 12 points from 10 games, four points adrift of Tuks who lie sixth with 16 points after the same number of games.
