Abrahams: Tough job

The Premiership debutants currently find themselves 15th in the standings after managing just a solitary win this term, leaving them with seven points from their opening 10 games.

Things get no easier for caretaker coach Farouk Abrahams as the Cape Town outfit take on a high-flying Dikwena, who are currently third in the standings and just five points behind leaders Kaizer Chiefs.

Stars' current placing on the table is down to their stunning run of form, with the team having won their last five Premiership outings, while also staying undefeated in six.

Coach Cavin Johnson, though, will not be taking the tie lightly.

"Cape Town has not been a happy hunting ground for us in the past and I am hoping we can change that, but we will not underestimate Chippa who we know will give us a good fight," he told his club's official website.

"I said before the Wits game that it would be a hard match against them because they were looking to challenge among the top teams, and I say the same about Chippa now for the slightly different reason that they are battling at the bottom of the table.

"When you play teams near the bottom you know what you will come up against and if I look at Chippa, they are not a bad team. It will be hard.

"But with the greatest respect to my players, they also know what it is like to fight near the bottom, so we should at least be prepared mentally."
