Goal spoke to Ea Lla Koto coach Letsoaka whose side welcome the Clever Boys on Wednesday on the back of successive league defeats

Free State Stars coach Serame Letsoaka says the fact that Bidvest Wits haven’t won against them in the last three campaigns will be a big psychological advantage to them.

“I think it will be a psychological advantage for us. So to a certain extent (the record) does play a psychological role, it is some form of a plus for us,” Letsoaka told Goal.

Ea Lla Koto are coming off two back-to-back defeats to Polokwane City and Cape Town City in the league.

“We are all aware of how Wits play, and we are trying to correct everything as a team to say if they cannot get a goal from the crosses and set-plays which they are good at it,” he said.

The last time the Students won any official game in Bethlehem came as far back as the 2013/14 season when goals from Matthew Pattison and Sibusiso Vilakazi led them to a 2-0 win over Stars.

Letsoaka also confirmed that have made changes to their technical team with the redeployment of Themba Sithole.

“Themba has done a wonderful job in identifying players towards the end of last year and he has already been redeployed to go and look at the talent in our development that can come to the first-team,” Letsoaka concluded.
