Kaizer Chiefs are in unfamiliar territory where they have to fight to finish in the top half of the league table and come up an even more desperate side in Free State Stars.

The two sides meet at FNB Stadium on Saturday afternoon, in what is the penultimate round of PSL fixtures for the season, with Ea Lla Koto dangerously close to the relegation zone.

Stars are in 13th place, tied on 26 points with Black Leopards with both sides only a defeat away from the basement of the league table.

With only six wins collected throughout the season, coach Nikola Kavazovic has admitted that he is preparing his charges for the promotion-relegation playoffs which will pit whoever finishes 15th in the top flight against teams who finish second and third in the National First Division.

“We are not strong enough mentally. I don’t think we can compete with Chiefs and Sundowns at this stage,” the Serb conceded.

“Everything is possible, but I’m a realistic man. At this stage, we don’t have a chance. We can use these matches to prepare for the playoffs.”

Their opponents are also not a bundle of confidence, having now gone five matches without a win – placing a lowly seventh with just two matches remaining.

The Glamour Boys suffered a 1-0 defeat in their last outing against Bloemfontein Celtic, and will look to get back to winning ways in order to consolidate their spot in the top eight, as well as build some winning momentum ahead of their Nedbank Cup final against TS Galaxy.
