Cape Town - Free State Stars have added a fresh face to their coaching staff with the appointment of a new assistant coach in Serbian Marko Vasiljevic.

Vasiljevic previously worked together with head coach Nikola Kavazovic at Kenyan outfit AFC Leopards, and holds a UEFA B level coaching licence.

According to the club's official website: "The 26-year-old Serbia-born coach will, together with David Vilakazi, serve as assistant to Head Coach Nikola Kavazovic."

"Vasiljevic will be in the dugout when Ea Lla Koto take on fellow relegation battlers Black Leopards this coming weekend."

Ea Lla Koto will be targeting more of the same on Saturday when they face Black Leopards at Goble Park Stadium on Saturday evening.

Kavazovic's side bounced back to winning ways last time out, after clinching a 3-2 victory over Bloemfontein Celtic in a thrilling Free State derby.

Kick-off is at 20:15.
