Teams: Free State Stars v Polokwane City
Date: 9 November 2013
Venue: Goble Park
Free State Stars will host Polokwane City at Goble Park on Saturday afternoon in the ABSA Premiership.
Ea Lla Koto will hope to use home ground advantage to return to winning ways, after losing three games in a row, most recently to Mamelodi Sundowns in a midweek clash.
Polokwane City played to a 1-1 draw with Amazulu in their midweek game, and were also the first side this season to beat Mamelodi Sundowns in the league this season, in their match prior to that.
Polokwane City are unbeaten since new coach Boebie Solomons took over, having won once and played to two draws.
Both clubs have eight points currently, with City finding themselves in thirteenth spot after nine games. Stars are one position behind them, on goal difference, but have played one game less.
While the clubs have never met since Polokwane City changed their name, and moved away from Port Elizabeth, they did meet twice in the PSL when City were known as Bay United, with both encounters were won by Stars.
This is how they line-up:
Free State Stars: Daniel Agyei, Paulus Masehe, Sadate Ouro-Akoriko, Themba Shabalala, Reuben Thebakang, Katlego Mashego, Luyolo Nomandela, Angelo Kerspruy, Danny Venter, Camaldine Abraw, Abdul-Basit Adam
