PORT Elizabeth’s Morning Stars face another tough encounter when they host unpredictable OR Tambo in a Safa Eastern Cape Second Division League match at the Zwide Stadium today (7pm).
Kwazakhele team Stars are third from the bottom of the log after collecting two points from the five games they have played since the Christmas break.
Stars coach Siyabulela Isaac said he was very concerned at the poor performance, but he believed the side were ready for Tambo.
“It is embarrassing to see the team in that position  on the log table and we need to score goals to win this match.
“We do create a lot of chances but our problem is to convert those into goals, and that’s exactly what we were working on during the week.”
Isaac said the clash against Tambo would be tough, considering that the East London side had played to a 1-1 draw against log-leaders Mthatha Bucks on Tuesday.
“They are a good team but we will have to adopt an aggressive approach from the start.”
He said the spirit of the team was high at the camp and all the players were available for selection except the goal-scorer in their previous match against Cloud 9, Thandisizwe Tukani, who sustained a knee injury.
Meanwhile, another Port Elizabeth outfit campaigning in the Safa Eastern Cape Second Division League, Real City, are looking forward to continuing their good form when they clash against FC Buffalo at the Jan Smuts Stadium in East London tonight (7pm).
The Motherwell team have registered two victories in a row to improve their position on the log. City are in the top 10 and the team’s objective is to finish the first half of the season inside the top eight.
Coach Bonke Namba said: “I’m still not happy with our performance but I will be happy if we can claim a third consecutive victory against Buffalo on Friday,” he said.
“We’ve got a young squad who are determined to fight for the maximum points and we will come back with the three points from East London.”
Wounded Highbury are determined to redeem their image when they visit neighbours Jeffreys Bay Milan in a Safa Eastern Cape Second Division League match at the Jeffreys Bay sportsfield tomorrow (3pm).
Highbury are still bitter after they were crushed 2-0 by Tornado on Tuesday.
They dropped to fourth place on the log, trailing by six points from log leaders Bucks.
