Squads & Team News


Meanwhile, Sundowns are aware of the fact that a victory over Stars will see them move into third place and they would be five points behind log leaders Orlando Pirates.

The Brazilians will also be keen to return to winnings after being eliminated from the Telkom Knockout Cup by Baroka FC in the quarter-finals over the weekend.

Pitso Mosimane will look to captain and midfielder Hlompho Kekaka, who is expected to return after missing the TKO clash through suspension, and attacker Gaston Sirino, who have been very influential thus far this season.

The accomplished local tactician will have to do without forwards Anthony Laffor, Sibusiso Vilakazi, defenders Anele Ngcongca, Rivaldo Coetzee and goalkeeper Thela Ngobeni, who are all out injured.

Meanwhile, Stars extended their unbeaten run to three games in the league when they drew 1-1 with Black Leopards away in their previous game in the competition.

The draw left Ea Lla Koto placed eighth on the league standings with 13 points from 12 matches. They are three points behind fifth-placed SuperSport United.

A victory for Stars over Sundowns will see them cement their place in the top eight.

Luc Eymael's key players are Judas Moseamedi and Cesaire Gandze, who scored against Lamontville Golden Arrows and Leopards respectively.

Stars captain Paulus Masehe is expected to miss the game as the defender-come-midfielder is nursing a long-term injury.
