L-W-L-D-L: Stars Aim To Bounce Back Against Resurgent Chiefs

Luc Eymael is taking aim at Kaizer Chiefs and plans to get Free State Stars back to winning ways after a disappointing start to the 2018/19 season. 

Ea Lla Koto are set to welcome Amakhosi to the Goble Park Stadium in tonight's Absa Premiership match. Stars have won only one of their opening five matches of the campaign.

Eymael's side has lost three matches and drawn one, and have collected only four points from a possible 15. Eymael is banking on the fact that Chiefs are set to be without the experienced duo of Leonardo Castro and Erick Mathoho for the match as both players have been confirmed injured.   

“It will be a tough game, you know the team of Chiefs’ (calibre). I know they are lacking Castro and Mathoho as we are lacking (Sinethemba) Jantjie and (Harris) Tchilimbou who got injured in the game against Polokwane City. It will be a tough game because we will be facing a team with perfect confidence,” said the Belgian tactician.   

Giovanni Solinas guided Chiefs to an impressive 4-1 win over Cape Town City in their match at the weekend. In their previous meeting, which was in the MTN8 last month, Chiefs beat Stars 3-0 at the  FNB Stadium.  
However, the Ea Lla Koto head coach believes that his players could give their campaign a turnaround against the Soweto giants at home this evening. 

“We will have to try and bounce back to show that here (Goble Park) it is our house and our home. It’s important. Unfortunately, things are not going on our side currently and we have to force luck to be on our side and everything to be on our side because we have to try to bounce back despite the opposition today,” concluded Eymael. 

The match is scheduled to get underway at 19:30.
