The fact that Benoni Premier United are still to grab a point in the Castle Premiership to date sends cold shivers down the spines of Free State Stars.

"It is more dangerous playing against a club that is under so much pressure," said Mike Mokoena, Ea lla koto chairman.

Stars face United at Kings Park Stadium in Durban tomorrow at 3pm.

The expensively-assembled Stars are still to lose after four games, including a draw against neighbours and log leaders Bloemfontein Celtic.

Attempts to get a comment from the technical staff of United, now called Thanda Royal Zulu, which include former England coach Sven Goran Erricsson's son Johan, were unsuccessful.

"It is good to get the points so early in the season so that we do not find ourselves in trouble at the end of the season," said Mokoena.

"The support that we are getting is pleasing, Free State people are realising the importance of supporting the club and we appreciate it."

Some of the players expected to torment Stars are Bernard Parker, Patrick Mayo and Serge Djiehoua.

United can brace themselves for yet another defeat with players such as Duncan Lechesa, Diyo Sibisi and Sifiso Vilakazi in devastating form.

Meanwhile, former South African international Zitha "Ninja" Mofokeng is hoping to revive his soccer career at Free State Stars.

Mofokeng, who was one of the key players at Bush Bucks before it folded, has been invited to train with Ea lla koto next week.
