Cape Town - Free State Stars head coach Luc Eymael says he expects a good response from his team against SuperSport United following a 3-0 loss to Bloemfontein Celtic on Sunday.

Ea Lla Koto face Matsatsantsa at the Goble Park in Bethlehem on Wednesday looking to bounce back from the disappointing derby defeat to Siwelele.

Currently, Stars are in 10th position although they have lost just once in five matches at home at the hands of Mamelodi Sundowns in September.

Nonetheless, Eymael insists his side can produce a better performance than that shown against Celtic.

"I hope that my players will bounce back and the supporters and management back with a win," he said.

"Now the ball is in the court of the players to bounce back I do my utmost best during the week all the time.

"It's our worst game I have ever seen from my team."

Kick-off is at 19:30.
