FS Stars out to silence AmaZulu

Free State Stars will welcome AmaZulu FC in an Absa Premiership match at the Goble Stadium on Saturday.

Kick-off is at 3:30pm.

Ea Lla Koto are winless in their last three league matches, having lost 1-0 to SuperSport United away last weekend.

As a result, Stars are 14th on the league standings - a point above the relegation playoff spot.

Meanwhile, AmaZulu returned to winning ways in the league when they defeated Bidvest Wits 2-0 at home last weekend.

Usuthu are 11th on the league standings - three points behind ninth-placed Highlands Park.

What are the teams saying?

Free State Stars coach Nikola Kazavovic

“I am not thinking about relegation in my head, and if I say I can’t help this team to survive relegation, I might as well go straight to the airport and go home," he said.

“The plans for the pre-season and next season are already in place, which players will be leaving and those that will be joining the team."

AmaZulu midfielder Michael Morton

“It is always tough but when their PSL status is on the line then it is even tougher," he said.

"Goble Park is a tough place to go, conditions are challenging, so it’s not going to be easy."

Free State Stars key players

Rooi Mahamutsa: The experienced central defender is one of the senior players in the Ea Lla Koto team. Mahamutsa will be hoping to lead the team to victory at home.

Sinethemba Jantjie: The attacking midfielder remains one of the top wingers in the Absa Premiership despite Stars' struggles. Jantjie has the ability to inspire Stars to victory over AmaZulu.
