Mohammed Anas focused for Free State Stars' showdown with Bidvest Wits

Posted: 10 May 2017 Time: 10:15

Free State Stars striker Mohammed Anas says collecting three points is all that matters from tonight's showdown with title contenders Bidvest Wits at Goble Park (19h30).

Stars have given Wits problems in the past, having recorded goalless draws in both league meetings last term, while also knocking the Students out of the Telkom Knockout and Nedbank Cup in 2015/16.

This season Ea Lla Koto dispatched the Clever Boys in the TKO, but lost 3-1 in the reverse league fixture in December.

Anas, however, is only focused on helping his side beat relegation, as they hover above the drop zone courtesy of goal difference with three matches left.

"It's not even about that. We are here fighting for three points in all the games that we're going to play, today it's about three points," Anas tells

"I think that is all I can say, but about the history I don't know about their history against us.

"And what I know every game we play 90 minutes and today it'll be 90 minutes, and after 90 minutes we'll see. People are wishing Free State Stars to go down and you'll see today after 90 minutes.

"I can promise you you'll definitely see a good fight from us as Free State Stars. Even our supporters expect us to do well and as I said, we'll see after 90 minutes."

Anas, who has scored four goals in 10 league outings since his January signing, is determined to help his side snap a six-game winless run.

"Past games we've been scoring, even when we lose we do score. It's not like luck hasn't been on our side," he adds.

"Of course results have not been coming. It's not only us that we see results are not forthcoming. Therefore we are not putting our heads down because results are not coming so we are going to kill ourselves, no, it's not about that.

"We are left with three games to go, we'll see what happens in those games."

Wits, who have failed to win in Bethlehem in the last three years, are three points clear of champions Mamelodi Sundowns at the summit as they push for their first league title in their 96-year existence.
