Starting XI: FS Stars v Sundowns

Absa Premiership
 
Teams: Free State Stars v Mamelodi Sundowns
 
Date:16 April 2017
 
Venue: James Motlatsi Stadium
 
Free State Stars will look to move away from the relegation zone when they host a rejuvenated Mamelodi Sundowns outfit in an Absa Premiership encounter on Sunday afternoon.
 
The home side occupy 14th position on the table with 22 points garnered from a possible 69, which includes a dismal form guide of three losses and a draw in their last five league games.
 
The Bethlehem based-outfit's chances of survival in the top-flight were handed a blow when they were condemned to a 2-1 loss by fellow relegation-candidates in their most recent fixture.
 
Masandawana are still firmly in contention to retain their Absa Premiership title as they occupy fourth spot on the table with 38 points - five points behind table-toppers Cape Town City, however Pitso Mosimane's charges have three games in-hand. 
 
Sundowns put an end to their five-game consecutive winless streak in the league with an emphatic 5-0 victory against cross-town rivals SuperSport United in the Tshwane Derby in their most recent clash.
 
Mosimane will be hoping to maintain his undefeated record against the QwaQwa-based side - having recorded nine wins and a draw from the ten games against Stars.
 
 
Here's how they line-up:
 
Free State Stars XI:  32. Ngobeni, 5. Masehe, 11. Jantjie, 24. Tlhone, 38. Anas, 50. Vilakazi, 15. Kerspuy, 35. Teyise, 20. Mashego, 8. Venter, 26. Dlamini. 
 
Mamelodi Sundowns XI: 36. Onyango, 32. Madisha, 16. Nascimento, 4. Langerman, 27. Morena, 8. Kekana, 15. Mohomi, 33. Billiat, 22. Tau, 18. Zwane, 19. Mashaba.
