Ea Lla Koto v Ubuntu

Free State Stars take on National First Division side Ubuntu Cape Town in the quarter-finals of the Nedbank Cup on Saturday, kick-off 3:30pm.

Ea Lla Koto are at Athlone Stadium this weekend to face Casey Prince’s giant-killers.

After seeing off Jomo Cosmos, the American coach led his charges to victories over Polokwane City and AmaZulu to become the last remaining side from outside the Premiership in the competition.

Stars beat Super Eagles and Chippa United, and could play one of Cape Town City, Mamelodi Sundowns, Kaizer Chiefs, Baroka, Maritzburg or Bloemfontein Celtic, with a win in the Mother City.

While Ubuntu, who are fighting relegation in the NFD, come into this match following a loss in the league to Cosmos, Stars, who are flying high in fourth place on the top-flight standings, were edged by Chippa.

Ahead of the game, Prince told SuperSport: “We want to continue this incredible dream run (in the Nedbank Cup), but we also need to be realistic.

“The NFD league is wide open and a mistake by any team from 11th spot to the bottom may cost them their status.

“We’ve got an incredible squad and I have faith in every one of the players. Who we put out on Saturday (against Stars) will depend a lot on the moment and what we feel closer to the game.”
