Sundowns Have To Win The Nedbank Cup

Clawing our way back into the race for the Absa Premiership at the moment may seem a tad bit unrealistic. With Kaizer Chiefs being 13 points ahead of us with a handful of games left to play, it would take a serious meltdown on Chiefs' part for us to win the trophy and that’s unlikely to happen.

What is needed now is to bounce back and carry on with the next challenge. Luckily for us we have one more trophy left to play for in the form of the Nedbank Cup.

The semi-final of the competition will see us take on Vasco Da Gama, and with our opponents being a National First Division outfit, we should take full advantage of our superiority and pedigree.

There is no room for error following our 5-0 loss to Bloemfontein Celtic last night and losing to a side like Vasco in the semi-finals of the Nedbank Cup will further add to the humiliation.

I believe our players should not go back into their shells but rather we should pick ourselves up and give back to the fans what they deserve. It was awful for the Masandawana faithful to see five goals cross the line on Wednesday.

At the very least, we should play for the support they have been giving all season long. We also have to fight for second spot as it is the gateway to the CAF Champion’s League. In the post-match interviews following the game against Siwelele, Teko Modise highlighted the importance of finishing second with the view off competing in the Champion’s League.

All is not lost at present and we must now turn our focus to the Nedbank Cup.

Do you feel winning the Nedbank cup will cushion the blow after losing out in the league?
