Cape Town - Free State Stars boss Kinnah Phiri feels that his side has the potential to be a real threat in the Premiership if they can start converting their chances into goals.

Ea Lla Koto are unbeaten in the league this year, but were dumped out of the Nedbank Cup, 4-2 on penalties, by Bidvest Wits at the weekend.

Phiri feels like his team deserved to win the game despite the result and believes if they can turn more of their chances into goals, they will cause a lot of problems for other teams.

"We are going to work on our finishing this week. One day when the chances are taken we are going to really punish a team," Phiri told the club's official website.

"The guys are very confident and motivated. Our defence has improved a lot and we managed to keep a clean sheet against Wits."

"The performance was very good. The boys worked hard, played well and created a lot of chances. I feel that we deserved to win.

"The only problem was the finishing. We broke through on their goal twice and both times the goalkeeper managed to save.

"We did everything right. The boys gave their all and they followed instructions properly."

Stars travel to Harry Gwala Stadium on Saturday to take on Maritzburg United in the Premiership.

Phiri added: "We are going to prepare well. We have played three games so far and we have not lost a game. We have created many chances but just not made use of them."
