“Casric Stars are not an easy team to play against. In their first season in the Motsepe League, they’ve done well so far. They are sitting in position two or three and, at one stage, they were sitting at number one. That alone tells you they are a good team. 

“We’ve definitely analyzed them and, like any other team, they have their strengths and weaknesses. They have strong guys, up front, players who can hold up the ball and wait for others to join. They play more like ‘route one’ and they play from the second ball quite often.

“They are also dangerous from set plays. They are very aggressive at attacking the ball from corners and throw-ins; they’re very organized when it comes to that.”

Casric Stars midfielder Mumuni Abubakar feels that an upset is on the cards.

“I think we’re ready to upset Chiefs. We are a new team but we gelled from the first game. It’s just magic,” said Abubakar, as quoted by SowetanLIVE.

“Our squad is strong enough to compete against Chiefs. We have been doing well in the league, so our confidence is high and we have the momentum.

“We want to leave a legacy as the first crop of Casric players to achieve great things and winning against Chiefs would be a foundation of that legacy. We are not under any pressure but we are just enjoying the moment.

“We have a bunch of experienced players and talented youngsters. Each and every one of us is looking forward to this game because playing against Chiefs will expose our youngsters to many things.

“As senior players, we’ve been telling them how it is like to compete with the big boys, so now this is a chance for them to see what we’ve been preaching to them.”
