Freese has tricks up his sleeve for MTN8


Dikwena face the Clever Boys on Sunday in Rustenburg.

Freese says his new signings are looking good, and the squad has been working hard to get their fitness levels up.

“I am very happy with how the team is shaping up, we have looked very good so far. I am also happy with the lack of injuries, and with how our new signings are coming along,” Freese tells Stars’ official website.

“Some were quite short of fitness having not had much of a pre-season, but were given individual programmes to bring them up to speed and have responded very well.”

Wits and Stars have already met this season, in their League season opener at Royal Bafokeng Stadium on August 4, which ended 0-0. Freese says he may be changing it up for the second bout.

“It is a very difficult match, even if we are playing at home where we have been strong over the last year or so,” he says. “We will be prepared for the game though, we might have to change our strategy on how to beat them, but the boys will be ready.”

Freese says he will be looking at some new combinations when Dikwena take on newly promoted National First Division side Baroka FC in a friendly on Wednesday.
