Cape Town - Free State Stars striker Moeketsi Sekola admits he is relishing the Free State Derby clash with rivals Bloemfontein Celtic on Wednesday.

Following last week's 1-0 loss to Chippa United, Ea Lla Koto currently sit in the promotion/relegation places, having won just one of their last five Premiership clashes.

The derby represents an excellent opportunity for Kinah Phiri's men to get back on track and Sekola is confident his side can do just that when they welcome Phunya Sele Sele to Charles Mopeli Stadium.

"I can’t wait. I’m more than ready," the 25-year-old told the club's official website.

"Our fans must not stop supporting us. We have rectified our mistakes and we are ready to turn the corner. It’s gonna be a different ball game on Wednesday."

A recent call-up for Bafana Bafana, Sekola has been a standout performer for Stars this season and has netted six goals in 11 Premiership games.
