The Free State Derby Is Upon Us!

It is the Free State derby tonight and the province will come to a standstill as Free State Stars and Bloemfontein Celtic clash in the ABSA Premiership. Both teams lost their opening games and will be looking to improve on their form. Supporters Club catches up with one of the Ea Lla Koto faithful.

Beaver Nazo: Hey Tshidi, how are you?

Matshediso Tshabalala: I'm all good Beaver, no complaints.

BN: Free State Stars square off against Bloemfontein Celtic in a Free State derby tonight. Your thoughts on the game?

MT: Firstly, we are not happy that the derby is being playing in midweek. Nonetheless, we will go to the stadium and support our team. We are ready for Siwelele.

BN: You've got a new coach, Denis Lavagne. Your thoughts on him?

MT: We believe in him. As you saw in our first game, the team played very well even though we lost 2-1. We were so organised, we didn't look like a team with new players and a new coach. We are good!

BN: You have lost some key players going into this season. Do you think the team will survive this season?

MT: Yes, we will. As you know, as Free State Stars, we always produce and sell players. This is not something we worry about. We will compete.

BN: What are your plans for the new season as supporters of the team?

MT: We want to support our team and we are aiming at growing the support base of our team.

BN: Any message for the team for tonight's big game?

MT: To all Ea Lla Koto faithful, let's fill the stadium. To the boys, we are behind you all the way. We will beat Celtic 1-0 tonight and the scorer will be our new striker, I won't mention his name. (laughs)

BN: Tshidi, thank you for chatting to us, and good luck for the rest of the season.

MT: Thank you Beaver, stay blessed!

What is your prediction for the Free State derby tonight?
