The defending champions had a tumultuous 2017 after being crowned 2016/2017 Absa Premiership and the 2017 Telkom Knockout champions but struggled to replicate their form in the new season, accumulating 11 points from their opening 15 matches.
Ea Lla Koto have managed to construct a decent league run thus far and find themselves in the fifth spot with 22 points from their opening 15 fixtures.
Both sides will be keen to start 2018 in winning ways in a fixture that has proven to be tight and tough in the midfield over the past few years.
Home fans will be eager to see if coach Gavin Hunt plays any of the new signings brought in early January and how that will affect the shape and style of The Clever Boys.
