PLATINUM Stars have had a turbulent week and by the looks of things it will not get any easier as they go into battle with Orlando Pirates tomorrow afternoon.
Starting with their defeat to second-from-bottom Mpumalanga Black Aces at home last week, Dinaledi then went down to Kaizer Chiefs in midweek and up next for them are Orlando Pirates at the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace. Stars are eighth on the log but their current form worries coach Steve Komphela.
Pirates collected maximum points in their first-round encounter, thanks to a Lucas Thwala goal. After back-to-back defeats, Stars will want to return to winning ways at the expense of Pirates whose form of late is a far cry from early in the season when many pundits tipped them for league glory.
Lately they seem to have lost their spark and have found the going difficult against teams they would have easily subdued earlier in the season.
Perhaps the loss of skipper Benson Mhlongo and playmaker Teko Modise's slump could be behind their slide but they have always maintained that they are not a one-man team and have enough players to do the job in the absence of the duo. The suspension of Luis Renteria will be a blow to Stars but in Henrico Botes and Joseph Molongoane the hosts have attacking options.
