GI wants winning mentality
When the two teams met in the league in August it was Ea Lla
Koto who overcame a two-goal deficit to claim a 3-2 victory.
Since then the men from the Free State have claimed seven
points from four matches to sit in sixth position in the standings.
This has been achieved without the assistance of a number of
regulars who have been sidelined. Daouda Diakite (knee), Rudolf Bester
(hamstring), and Daniel Cardoso (stress fracture) continue to be ruled out by
"This is an opportunity for us to take the confidence
we have gained in the league and use it to ignite a great domestic cup
campaign,” Stars’ coach Tom Saintfiet.
“This is the first cup competition for the season and we
want to make it as far as we can."
Like their visitors, SuperSport have enjoyed a good run of
form of late, with Matsatsantsa unbeaten in new head coach Gordon Igesund's two
matches at the helm.
Igesund will have the services of captain Thabo September
available to him for the weekend's clash after the defender was forced to make
do with a place among the replacements last time out.
The game is scheduled for a 15:00 kick-off.
