Cape Town - Free State Stars coach Luc Eymael has suggested that Kaizer Chiefs' 4-1 win over Cape Town City was not as emphatic as the scoreline suggests.

A brace from Khama Billiat as well as goals by Siyabonga Ngezana and Philani Zulu powered Amakhosi to their first league win of the season and took them to sixth on the table.

The Glamour Boys now face Ea Lla Koto at Goble Park on Tuesday night as Chiefs coach Giovanni Solinas returns to his former club, who currently are 15th in the standings.

Eymael however has underplayed the nature of Amakhosi's weekend win.

"Well 11 against 10, okay. At half-time it was 1-1 and City hit the post and then after the red card [to Taariq Fielies in the 69th minute], Chiefs won," he was quoted saying by the Sowetan.

Stars go into the match on a four match winless streak after a 0-1 defeat to Polokwane City.

"It's difficult because Chiefs are high on confidence after winning with four goals," Eymael admitted.

"But we will lift our heads up. Hopefully, we will be luckier, only one game can turn things around."

Kick-off is at 19:30.
