Stars staying solid in top three

Free State Stars’ continued surge up the Premier Soccer League (PSL) log has rendered them a force to be reckoned with in the upcoming league fixtures going into the festive break.
Ea lla koto is favourably positioned third on the PSL log ahead of teams like Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates – which both regularly command top positions in the league.
Stars have managed to gain a string of good results during the current season of the PSL with four wins and a draw in their last five campaigns, accumulating ten goals in all the latter fixtures. The defenders also seem to be enjoying good form at the back of the pack, having only conceded two goals in
five matches.
According to the Stars’ public relations officer, Lebo Maketa, the team’s good run is attributed to the players’ endurance abilities.
“Most of our boys are still young so they can still run throughout the 90 minutes of the game, and of course they get a lot of motivation from the coach.”
Stars have a tough forthcoming home fixture against Kaizer Chiefs on December 17 and will be hoping to take advantage of the Soweto giants’ poor form of recent. Despite displaying limping performances in recent games, the Soweto side managed to luckily snatch a narrow away victory against the in-form Mamelodi Sundowns in Pretoria
last weekend.
Maketa said, however, Ea lla koto’s forthcoming match against Chiefs will not be a problem.
“A win against Chiefs is inevitable. There is simply no alternative.”
Free State Stars will take part in the Reconciliation Challenge in a friendly match against Bloemfontein Celtic at the Free State Stadium tomorrow.
