Absa Premiership Starting XI: Chippa United v Free State Stars 17 March 2018
Teams: Chippa United v Free State Stars
Date: 17 March 2018
Venue: Sisa Dukashe Stadium
Chippa United will be seeking revenge when they host Free State Stars in an Absa Premiership clash at the Sisa Dukashe Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The Chilli Boys went down 2-1 to Ea Lla Koto in the last 16 of the Nedbank Cup last weekend.
However, the focus is now back on the league, where new interim coach Vladislav Heric has been tasked with the challenge of saving their top-flight status.
The Chilli Boys currently occupy 11th spot on the log with 27 points, although four other teams are on 27 points with seven round of matches remaining.
Chippa are only three points ahead of second-from-bottom Ajax Cape Town and the pressure is on to avoid the drop.
United lost 2-0 to Cape Town City in their last league match which was the final straw for former coach Teboho Moloi who parted ways with the club a day later,
Stars, meanwhile, are having one of their best campaigns under Belgian coach Luc Eymael.
Eymael has led the Bethlehem outfit to fourth on the standings, one point behind third-place Maritzburg United, who defeated Polokwane City on Friday.
In their last league match, Ea Lla Koto beat relegation candidates Platinum Stars 2-1 two weeks ago.
