Ea Lla Kota, who are under the tutelage of Zambian soccer strategist Kinnah Phiri, have been a revelation this season with players like Diyo Sibisi and Fanyana Dhladhla emerging as bright prospects in their maiden appearance in the PSL.
Sibisi and Dhladhla have both been wearing their goal-scoring boots this season with Sibisi currently leading the PSL goal scoring chart with six goals.
Phiri will once again hope that both players, together with captain Duncan Lechesa, are in fine form in Rustenburg tonight.

Stars’ manager Rantsie Mokoena is upbeat about his team's chances of collecting maximum points tonight.
