Usuthu targeting win at FS Stars

AmaZulu will aim to collect maximum points when they travel to Goble Park to take on Free State Stars in an Absa Premiership encounter on Sunday, 24 November 2013, at 15h30.

Usuthu have not won any of their last six league matches and head into this clash having been held to a 1-1 draw at home by Bloemfontein Celtic in their last league outing.

Craig Rosslee’s side have a decent record away from home so far this season with two wins, two draws and just one defeat from five matches.

The trip to the Free State will be followed by challenging fixtures against Platinum Stars (home), University of Pretoria and Golden Arrows (both away).

Usuthu are placed seventh on the Absa Premiership log with 13 points from 10 matches.

Stars on the other hand broke a three-match losing streak when they beat Polokwane City 1-0 at home in their last outing.

The Free State side has recorded two wins, one draw and one defeat from their four home matches this season.

Their next three league opponents are University of Pretoria (away), Kaizer Chiefs (home) and Mpumalanga Black Aces (away).

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

In head-to-head stats, Stars and AmaZulu have met in 43 league matches since 1986.

Ea Lla Koto have claimed 19 wins compared to 14 for Usuthu, while 10 matches have ended in draws.

Stars have a strong home record against AmaZulu, with 13 wins and just six defeats from 22 matches.

Last season Ea Lla Koto did a league ‘double’ over Usuthu, winning 1-0 away and 2-1 at home.

The two sides met in a Telkom Knockout encounter earlier this season, a tie which ended 2-0 in favour of Stars, but Usuthu will look to avenge that loss by claiming all points on offer on Sunday.
