Cape Town - Free State Stars will look to add to University of Pretoria’s struggles in the Absa Premiership when the teams meet at Goble Park.

The Free State Side has claimed five points from four home matches this season.

Ea Lla Koto are placed 13th on the Absa Premiership log with 11 points from nine matches.

University of Pretoria suffered their sixth defeat of the season when they were beaten 1-0 at home by Maritzburg United on November 8.

The Tshwane side has claimed two points from four away matches this season.

AmaTuks are placed 15th on the Absa Premiership log with five points from nine matches.

In head-to-head stats, Stars and Tuks have met in six league matches since 2012/13.

Ea Lla Koto have two wins compared to one for AmaTuks, while three matches have been drawn.

Stars have an unbeaten home record against Tuks, with one win and two draws from three matches.

Last season Ea Lla Koto took four points off AmaTuks, winning 1-0 in Pretoria before playing out a 1-1 draw in the return game.
