Stars have failed to win either of their last two league matches (following a run of four straight victories), as a 3-0 loss at home to Maritzburg United on January 20, was followed by a goalless draw at relegation-threatened Ajax Cape Town on January 26.

Baroka played to their eighth draw of the season, when they were held 2-2 at Golden Arrows on January 28.

The Limpopo side has won just two of their last 12 league matches, picking up just 11 points from a possible 36 in the sequence.

In head-to-head stats, Stars and Baroka have met in three league matches since the start of last season. The games have produced two wins for Bakgaga, including a 1-0 home triumph when the teams met earlier this season and one for Ea Lla Koto.
