Stars bigger threat than SuperSport

FREE State Stars will pose a bigger problem for title-chasing BidVest Wits than defending Absa Premiership champions SuperSport United.

FREE State Stars will pose a bigger problem for title-chasing BidVest Wits than defending Absa Premiership champions SuperSport United.

That was the opinion of Wits head coach Roger de Sa, ahead of the Students' clash against Stars at their Milpark stronghold tonight at 8pm, and against SuperSport at the same venue on Saturday night, also at 8pm.

Said De Sa: "With SuperSport it is easier to plan as you get to see more of their games and I know their players better. To be honest I am a bit in the dark as to what to expect from Stars."

De Sa admitted he was disappointed after Wits surrendered their unbeaten league record, losing 1-0 to struggling Mpumalanga Black Aces last Wednesday night.

De Sa said it was still early days, but the next two home games will be crunch affairs. He said while the Bethlehem-based side were a closed book in many departments, he was wary of their attack. "They have four top-quality strikers. "

Sthembiso Ngcobo is one of the men De Sa will be keeping an eye on.

The other key striker is Zimbabwean import Kingston Nkhatha, who will also be closely watched by the Wits defence, where Justin Millar and skipper Tefu Mashamaite have been outstanding. - Sapa
