Langeloop Eastern Stars have set their sights on the R30 000 first prize in the Selati Super Cup but they will first have to get past free-scoring Saints.

The teams will clash at Ntunda Village tomorrow at 11am in a last 26 encounter.

Mthandeni Makamo, Stars' coach, said Saints reach their destination tomorrow.

"The cup is ours and the boys are all motivated by the first prize money," said Makamo.

Hezekiah Twala, Saints player-coach of Saints, was equally confident.

The family team of Orlando Pirates defender Lucas Twala (there are seven Twala siblings in the team), are expected to continue their goal feast. In their last two games Saints scored 24, putting a dozen each past Eagles and Classic. Stars booked their place by beating Premier United and Home Defenders 2-1.

Fixtures: Mzinti Pirates v Driekoppies Stars, Manchester v Brave Warriors, Eastern Transvaal v Magogeni Classic, Mtata Peace Makers v Never Die, Naas Santos v Twin City Fabric and Iraq v Scorpion.
