Free State Stars, position three in the log set to welcome position two Cape Town City at Goble Park Stadium in ABSA Premier League clash on Saturday, kick-off 20:15pm.  

Cape Town City will make a road trip to face a side that no one wants to meet at Goble Park,Free State Stars. Both teams makes a lot of noise so far. Free Stars open the second round of PSL campaign with a bang over Bidvest Wits wining 1-0 away from home. That win took them up farther on the standings behind Mamelodi Sundowns and very same side they host on Saturday.

Four wins in five matches for Ea lla Koto, it’s only disappointing in that round was the derby against the hands Bloemfontien Celitc losing 3-0. Three wins in a row looks much better and beaten at home since September is also a fine return.

Meanwhile Cape Town City they have to keep up with log Sundowns who are four points clear after 16 games played so far. Last week City took on struggling Platinuim Stars, it toked Roland Putssche to break the deadlock in the 82nd minute to give City all three golden points.

Cape Town City have won their last three fixtures. Coach Benni McCarthy will hope to add the tally and keep up the good performance as they will battle with problematic Stars. A win at Goble Park will keep the Citizens very interested and prominent to challenge Sundowns at the top on the table.
