The Windsor Stars are on the road up against Toronto FC Academy on Sunday afternoon in League1 Ontario action.

Interim coach Fabio Marras is confident his centre-defence duo of Chris Suta and Patrick Lepera will be enough to handle league leading goal scorer Molham Babouli.

“Both those guys back there, I think they’re strong, they both have experience, I think they’ll be able to handle him,” says Marras, adding Stars’ striker Mike Pio could be a difference maker in Toronto. “This is my first year coaching [Mike] Pio and I see a lot of good potential in him. He’s a very dangerous player when he’s in front of that net.”

The final six games of the season are must win situations for the Stars if the team is going to move up from 5th place to win the inaugural League1 Ontario championship.

Kick-off is set for 1pm.
