The Chilli Boys are just two points above bottom-of-the-log side Baroka FC, and they are level with Ea Lla Koto on 27 points going into the last league fixture of the season.

“We have options, option one to win and option two to draw. This means we will be very cautious in our approach,” said the Chilli Boys coach was quoted on the club’s website.

“This probably puts pressure on Free State Stars but also on us because they will go all out to win. We will be up to it. We will take a draw or a win on Saturday. Our preparations will be based on how we want to play on Saturday, which I am not going to reveal,” he added.

Going into this clash, Malesela further revealed there would be a couple of changes in his lineup, but he won’t make too many changes.

“We are not going to make wholesale changes. Slaughter [Xolani Mdaki] is out injured, and Zuke (Sandile) will have to pass a late fitness test. There won’t be too many changes, that’s for sure.
