Cape Town - Free State Stars captain Paulus Masehe says his team is better than their position in the Premiership standings suggests.

Stars are third last on the Premiership table in 14th position. The club have struggled for consistent form this season, which has seen them among the usual suspects in the battle to avoid the drop.

With 28 points to their name, Stars are five points ahead of the two bottom teams, AmaZulu and Moroka Swallows.

Stars have won seven games, drawn seven and lost 12 heading into their home clash against Wits on Wednesday.

Masehe, the 31 year-old veteran, is confident Stars will be able to show their quality in the remaining games of the season.

"We have had a tough season so far but I have faith in this team and the quality of our squad," Masehe said.

"I think we are not a bad team at all, it's just that we have had some problems with our consistency.

"At the moment we are near the bottom of the table and that's not a good reflection for us, we must improve.

"As a team we are not thinking about relegation because the focus for us now is doing our best in our last remaining games.

At Goble Park against the Students, Stars will be looking to pick up from where they left off in their last match, when they beat Ajax Cape Town 1-0.
