Steve Komphela's side have not been doing very well lately, losing all three games in a row to Ajax Cape Town, Wits and Mamelodi Sundowns, but the Free State-based outfit will aim to bag this one.

PSL rookies, Polokwane City, have been lifted by the arrival of Boebie Solomons as head coach, and have so far gone to claim five points in three league games. However, Stars will pin their hopes on top scorer, Adam Abdul-Basit to be on his best and secure the three points for Ea Lla Koto.
