Ajax Cape Town kept up their unbeaten run in the league with a 1-1 draw away to Chippa United in their last outing but will look to beat their guests as they look to keep up the pace set by the Glamour Boys.

De Sa’s side has recorded two wins from their two home matches thus far this season including the impressive win as de Sa's young side put Mamelodi Sundowns to the sword courtesy of a Travis Graham strike.

Their next three league opponents are Black Aces (away), Kaizer Chiefs and Platinum Stars (both home).

Last season, the Cape side took four points off their Free State counterparts, winning 1-0 at home and drawing 1-1 away.

Free State Stars coach Tom Saintfiet deciding against a allowing his players a break during the international break as the Bloemfontein side scheduled matches against National First Division sides Maluti FET and African Warriors in preparation for this fixture.

Stars, who are unbeaten in their last three fixtures, Ea Lla Koto hold onto seventh position on the log with seven points from five matches.

In head-to-head stats, Ajax and Stars have met in 22 league matches since 1999/2000.

Ea Lla Koto have 11 wins compared to five for the Urban Warriors, while six matches have been drawn.
