Starting XI: FS Stars v Sundowns
Absa Premiership Starting XI: Free State Stars v Mamelodi Sundowns 11 September 2017
Teams: Free State Stars v Mamelodi Sundowns
Date: 11 September 2017
Venue: Goble Park Stadium
Mamelodi Sundowns will be out to return to winning ways when they visit Free State Stars in the Absa Premiership match at Goble Park on Monday evening.
The match is scheduled to get underway at 18h00.
Pitso Mosimane's charges have made a lukewarm start to the 2017-18 season, as they lost their previous encounter 2-1 to Polokwane City before the international break.
The Brazilians are currently fifth on the standings with three points after two matches played. A win over Ea Lla Koto could see them go up to first on the log, with another batch of fixtures set to take place throughout the week.
Meanwhile, the Bethlehem-based side will be looking to make a good showing for new coach Luc Eymael who will be in charge of his first match following the departure of Sammy Troughton.
Ea Lla Koto drew 2-2 with Bidvest Wits in their last league outing before Troughton was relieved of his position.
They are languishing on the 13th place on the log, having only managed one point from their first two games.
Here's how they line up:
Stars: 1. Sangare, 5. Masehe, 2. Mobbie, 22. Keita, 29. Phungwayo, 12. Abubakar, 50. Vilakazi, 15. Mokhuoane, 25. Manqele, 21. Mthembu, 17. Hlubi.
Sundowns: 31. Brimah, 29. Soumahoro, 32. Madisha, 6. Arendse, 3. Hachi, 17. Lebese, 7. Manyisa, 25. Castro, 20. Ngcongca, 11. Vilakazi, 28. Laffor.
