First up for the Bucs’ captain and the Soweto giants in their mission to win trophies, will be a trip to Bidvest Stadium for the game against Bidvest Wits in this year’s MTN8 quarter-finals, on 27 August.

Speaking to Bucs’ official website, following the launch of the MTN8 for the 2016/17 season, Ace said his side is used to encounters against the Students.

“Playing Bidvest Wits is like a formality for us because we have played Bidvest Wits for the past two seasons in the MTN8 so this is like a formality, but what is key for us it to just go out there and do our job because this is our 80th anniversary season, therefore we want to create history by winning trophies this season.

“No we are not under pressure but the fact that we did not win any trophies last season is on the back of our minds and we want to remedy that scenario this season for the club and for our supporters,” said Manyisa.
