The Cape side will take on Free State Stars at Goble Park as they look to leapfrog Bloemfontein Celtic in the Premiership standings. However, they can expect to face a committed Stars outfit currently battling to stear clear of relegation.

"It is going to be hard facing the team fighting for relegation," Lolo told Football411.

When ask about a potential top-eight finish, he added: "The coach told us how important it is to finish in the top 8, as it's been more than two years not in the top 8, but so far I think we've done pretty well."

Lolo also gave his toughts on the upcoming Nedbank Cup semi-final clash with SuperSport. He stressed that they would be taking it one game at time.

"Right now we have a league match that we need to focus on and get positive results away from home, come weekend we will be guns blazing to take on United at home and proceed to the finals.

Meanwhile, the 27-year-old also urged his fellow South Africans to make a stand against the recent Xenophobic attacks in the country, saying: "People must stop attacking innocent people, as they are our brothers they have done nothing wrong."
