Luc Eymael hopes Free State Stars don't suffer from fatigue against Baroka


Stars, in 10th spot on the table with seven points from seven games, have their tails up after getting their second win of the season on the weekend with a 1-0 defeat of Highlands Park in Bethlehem.

Bakagaga, meanwhile, are second-from-bottom on the standings with five points, having lost 2-1 to log leaders Orlando Pirates last time out at Peter Mokaba Stadium.

"First of all you know, I hope my boys will deliver and they will be not too tired because it's game number four in 10 days," Eymael tells

"With two long travels from Bethlehem to Polokwane two times in 10 days it will be difficult. We tried to manage it as well as we can. As for today we know that Baroka will come at us and give everything because it's normal for a team that is at the bottom of the log.

"They are absolutely not a bad team. They have skilful players like I said, and some energetic players. And yes, we study all the teams in detail you know, all their weaknesses and strengths.

"I just hope that my boys, they will not be too tired in a matter of strength because we travelled only yesterday. I'm expecting a tough game. I hope my boys will be strong in the head because it's the head that controls everything in sport. I would really like to continue on a good track."

Stars will tonight welcome back Judas Moseamedi, but they are without fellow forward Harris Tchilimbou and defender Bangaly Keita.

"Yes, Moseamedi is back to training. He trained today, he was okay, but Tchilimbou is still out and you know that Keita is still out also," Eymael confirms.

Kick-off is at 19h30 at Peter Mokaba Stadium.
