Stellenbosch coach Steve Barker is eyeing a huge PSL scalp when they travel to face Kaizer Chiefs at 5pm tonight.
Stellies kick off their final 10 league games, hopeful of improving on their 12th place and claiming a top-eight finish.
Their first obstacle, though, is a Chiefs side coming off the back of two straight 1-0 wins – over eternal rivals Orlando Pirates and Caf Champions League group-stage rivals Wydad Casablanca.
But belief is high in the Boland too, with Stellies unbeaten in their last four games.
And Barker says the manne have been working hard during the international break in order to make the most of the business end of the season.
He says: “It’s an important phase for the club.
“Obviously we’ve come off some solid performances in our last four games.
“We had a good break which allowed us to work on some things we want to improve at and also allowed us to get a full sort-of squad available.
“There is still an opportunity to land a top-eight position, but we need points as quickly as possible.”
With Gavin Hunt’s Amakhosi finding some form, Barker warns: “Chiefs away from home is never an easy match.
“But as a team, we are capable of beating any team if we play to our full potential. It will be tough.”
In tonight’s other PSL clash, leaders Mamelodi Sundowns go to Tshakhuma FC for the 3pm kickoff.
