Free State Stars striker Moeketsi Sekola says he has a feeling that they will bag the full three points on Wednesday night when they face SuperSport United.

Ea Lla Koto welcome SuperSport United as they chase their first win in the Absa Premiership for 2017.

Serame Letsoaka's men lost 3-1 to Kaizer Chiefs in their opening 2017 tie and will now want to win to ensure they move up the log table to ease their relegation concerns.

Although meeting a high flying United side will not be easy, the hosts will bank on their home ground advantage.

The Bethlehem-based side occupy the 14th spot with the same number of points from 16 league matches so far.


“We expect a tough match. We know SuperSport have quality and are doing well as a team, but we are at home,” said Sekola.

“We must try and give our supporters something to make them happy. We must win and ensure we build on this win.

“It's not going to be easy and hopefully our coach has a trick up his sleeve as he once worked with them, but we will have to work hard for the full three points.

“We are ready for the battle and to get a win. We have worked hard in training and played well, but we just need a win.”

The match will be staged at the James Motlatsi Stadium in Orkney on Wednesday night, kick-off is at 19:30.
