Dikwena to host Ea Lla Koto

Free State Stars travel to the Royal Bafokeng Stadium to take on a struggling Platinum Stars on Saturday evening, kick-off 20:15.

Fresh from holding Mamelodi Sundowns to a 1-1 draw, that preceeded the 0-0 stalemate with AmaZulu, Ea La Koto are ready to pick up all three points on the road.

In fifth place, with 34 points, a win this weekend could see Stars jump to second place, if other results go our way.

Platinum Stars, meanwhile, are rock-bottom of the Premiership, some 17 points behind Ea La Koto heading into this game.

They have won just three games all season and have drawn two and lost six of their last eight games, with their most recent result a 2-1 loss to Maritzburg United, having conceded two goals in the final five minutes.

Dikwena will be without Roger De Sa following his red card after the match at the Harry Gwala Stadium but striker Bongi Ntuli is expected back after recovering from a knee injury.

Stars coach Luc Eymael has no suspensions to worry about, although Rooi Mahamutsa, Nyiko Mobbie and Sibusiso Hlubi are all one yellow card away from a ban.
