To Win (90mins)
Pretoria Univ. 7/4 
Draw 2/1 
FS Stars 7/4

Stars will be the worse off of the two sides, with the axing of Steve Komphela almost immediately after their loss to Chiefs at home on the weekend.

It topped headlines on almost all sporting pages, and whilst their thick-skinned home record looks good for an average side, they have really struggled on the road.

Three years is a long time in PSL standards for a coach to stick around, and maybe some fresh thoughts and leadership can change things for Stars on the road.

They travel to AmaTuks, who impressed on the weekend, bringing their three match losing streak to an end.

The win over AmaZulu will go a long way to boosting their confidence, and Stars will have fancied their chances in Pretoria prior to that result.

AmaTuks have gained points in three of their last four home games, and their defensive record at Tuks Stadium is of notable importance.

Betting Prediction: TUKS 7/4
Stars are unlikely to be any stronger than normal on the road, and I’m tipping the students to come up trumps here. The best value is a straight win for the home side, at 7/4.
