Ea Lla Koto's 2-0 win over Chippa United on Saturday was the club's fourth league win in a row and moved them into second place in the Q4 standings, just three points behind Kaizer Chiefs.
The Q-Innovation prize is handed out each quarter to the team that has performed the best in that period.
It is an impressive prize, worth playing for, as the winner of each quarter pockets a cool R1.5 million.
On top of the Q4 prize money, Stars are still chasing a place in the top eight of the division to qualify for next season MTN8 and are only two points behind Maritzburg United in eighth.
Celtic, on the other hand, have far less to play for, having pretty much secured their spot in the top eight already and are unlikely to catch Wits above them in the table.
Besides their 5-0 thrashing of Mamelodi Sundowns last month, their inconsistent results have been representative of their lack an immediate objective.
However, Wednesday's game is the Free State Derby, bragging rights are at stake and Clinton Larsen will be hoping that will be enough to motivate his players.
Free State Stars coach Kinnah Phiri will have to watch this game from the stands as he begins a three-game suspension for being dismissed late in the weekend's win over Chippa. Paulus Masehe also misses out through suspension.
Larsen has a virtually complete squad available to choose from with no fresh injuries or suspensions to worry about.
The match kicks off at 19:30.
