A ROBERT Sankara goal gave Free State Stars a crucial Absa Premiership win over Ajax Cape Town in Bethlehem to help their fight against relegation.

The victory takes Stars to 28 points with Moroka Swallows and AmaZulu both on 23 below them.

The match will be remembered as the first night game played at Goble Park in Bethlehem.

Going into the game, Stars had it all to do to try and move out of the relegation zone.

Robert Sankara put the hosts 1-0 ahead in the 18th minute with a header following an indirect free kick by Namibian Hendrick Somaeb.

Following the opener, Stars went full throttle at the Urban Warriors, not allowing them time to settle and showing no respect to Roger de Sa’s men.
