Free State Stars have shown signs of resurgence in their last two games, following the team’s shaky start to the 2013/14 season.
Ea Lla Koto have accumulated four points in their last two games, after Steve Komphela and his team recorded a win and a draw against Maritzburg United and Bloemfontein Celtic respectively.
Stars’ striker, Lucky Mokoena, believes that his side is ready to upset Platinum Stars in their league game this afternoon.
“We have prepared well for the game. We are showing that we understand each other now. Some of us are new in the team and the most difficult part is that our preseason was a little shorter than the other teams because of our tour to China at the end of last season. But things are getting together now. Platinum Stars beat us in the cup and we don’t want any mistakes this time,” said Mokoena.
Komphela’s side lost 3-0 when the two teams met in the quarterfinals of the MTN8 last month.
