Cape Town - Free State Stars will look to break their losing streak in the Absa Premiership when they host Chippa United at Goble Park.

Stars suffered their third successive loss in the league when they were beaten 2-1 at Ajax Cape Town on August 26.

The Free State side’s only home match this season was a 1-0 loss at the hands of Black Aces on the opening weekend.

Ea Lla Koto are placed 16th on the Absa Premiership log with zero points from three matches.

Chippa claimed their first win of 2015/16 when they crushed University of Pretoria 4-0 on August 25.

The Eastern Cape side’s previous away match was a 4-1 loss at Orlando Pirates on August 18.

The Chilli Boys are placed seventh on the Absa Premiership log with four points from three matches.

In head-to-head stats, Stars and Chippa have met in four league matches since the 2012/13 season.

Ea Lla Koto have claimed three wins compared to one for the Chilli Boys, while zero matches have been drawn.

Stars have a 100% home record against Chippa, with two wins from as many matches.

Last season the Chilli Boys claimed a 1-0 win in the Eastern Cape, but Ea Lla Koto claimed a 2-0 victory in the return game in the Free State.

Kick-off is at 15:00 on 12 September 2015.
