Ernst faces first real test

2015-09-09 06:00

FORMER Bloemfontein Celtic coach Ernst Middendorp will be hoping to get his new job as coach of Free State Stars off to a flying start with a win over Chippa United.

The two meet in what is expected to be a tough Absa Premiership encounter at the Goble Park Stadium in Bethlehem on Saturday (12/09) at 15:00.

Middendorp was appointed as coach of Stars after the dismissal of Kinnah Phiri, who helped the Bethlehem side to avoid relegation last season.

Ironically, the German mentor’s last job was at the same United he will be facing over the weekend. He definitely has a point to prove against his former employer.

Stars are propping up the log after having lost all three their matches. They are the only team that is without a point in the PSL.

Elsehwere, Maritzburg United welcome Celtic to the Harry Gwala Stadium on Saturday at 20:15
