KAIZER Chiefs go into tomorrow's Absa Premiership match against Free State Stars with high hopes, inspired by their dramatic comeback against Mpumalanga Black Aces.

Amakhosi fought back from a 3-1 deficit to draw the match 3-3 with AmaZion, thanks to a stunning brace by Zimbabwean Knowledge "Scandal" Musona.

Fresh from a 1-0 win over AmaZulu in Bethlehem on Wednesday, Stars welcome the Phefeni Glamour Boys at Charles Mopeli Stadium tomorrow at 8.15pm.

In a corresponding fixture last season, Stars beat Chiefs 2-0 through goals by Hleza Mofeli and Prince Olomu, who has since joined Bloemfontein Celtic.

Bobby Motaung, Chiefs' manager, said they were eager to show Ea Lla Koto the stars in their own backyard to get back to their winning ways.

"We are playing great soccer, it is unfortunate that we have been struggling to score goals but the drought is over after we netted three on Wednesday," he said.

"It was one of the greatest comebacks, we are happy that the issue of scoring problems is being sorted out.

"We hope to continue from where we left off on Saturday.

"Stars are a very good side with some excellent players, but we are going to QwaQwa for a win. We owe it to our supporters who have been wonderful."

Stars' manager Rantsi Mokoena said they wanted to maintain their winning rhythm .

"We watched Chiefs against Black Aces, they were in a class of their own. It will be a tough one but we are ready for them, we hope for the best."

Mokoena also announced that tickets for this game are available at Stars sports shop in QwaQwa and their headquarters in Bethlehem at R20 a person.

Stars captain Duncan Lechesa said: "We are going there for a win.

"We want to see ourselves in the top eight bracket in December."
