Silver Stars hope to shine in their last match at home this season at Bidvest Wits' expense tomorrow, but the Students believe they will be equal to the task in Phokeng.

In spite of Wits' optimism, Owen da Gama's side have enough armoury to send the Clever Boys back to Milpark without a point.

Their Castle Premiership clash is billed for Royal Bafokeng Stadium, starting at 3pm.

The "Tycoons" are trying hard to better their position on the log this term after finishing fifth last season and therefore they will not want to slip up in their two remaining matches to realise their goal.

"Wits are a capable team and we will not be carried away by their position on the log (13th)," Da Gama said.

"But we want to repay our supporters who have been rallying behind the team throughout the season with a win."

Eric Tinkler, who is still to register a win since he took over the coaching reigns from Boebie Solomons at Wits two months ago, believes his charges are in the right frame of mind to win.

"The players are no longer under pressure because our safety in the top flight has been guaranteed ," Tinkler said yesterday.

Da Gama will be minus the influential Koketso Mmotong and Stanley Kgatla who are out injured, but the likes of Solomon Mathe and Moemedi Moatlhaping should pull them through.

Noah Chivuta and Boitumelo Moleyane are key players for Wits.
