Platinum Stars defender Daniel "Sailor" Tshabalala yesterday spoke of the excitement that accompanied the imminent arrival of Dillon Sheppard at the team.

But Sheppard influencing anything at Stars lies in the distant future. For now Tshabalala and his ilk have to worry about their meeting with league holders SuperSport United at Super Stadium tomorrow at 7.30pm.

While United have shown a rare frailty in defence recently, they recovered well with the 3-1 win on Wednesday at Maritzburg United.

That match was the strongest signal yet that Elias Pelembe is back to his best. But the same goes for Jabu "Shuffle" Mahlangu for his team, Stars.

Yesterday Tshabalala said he was bracing himself for an onslaught.

"They were embarrassed - and they want to restore their tarnished reputation. They are waiting to hit someone with five goals maybe, and we better make sure its not us," Tshabalala said.

Twice recently Stars have gone two goals ahead, only to meekly relinquish their supremacy to the opposition.

Michael Khaile, Muzi Mkalipa and skipper Stanley Kgatla will have their work cut out for them against Glen Salmon, Norman Smith and Anthony Laffor. With Masibuzane Zongo back to strengthen Matsatsantsa a Pitori further, the only drawback is the absence of injured skipper Ricardo Katza.

lOn Sunday Bay United host Santos at ERPU Stadium at 3.30 pm. Umlilo, who are rooted to basement of the Absa Premiership table, will look to extend their unbeaten run to five against the People's team.

With MacDonald Mukansi suspended, Khabo Zondo's team welcome Jimmy Zakazaka back from suspension. While the visitors will put their hopes on, Jerome Ramatlhakwana and Eleazar Rodgers.
