Marumo went on to say that the game will be decided in the midfield and that he’s ready for a thrilling encounter.

“With regards to the final, the main thing is the battle in the midfield and this is where, on the day, the team that’s on form on the day can win the game,” he continued. “But what’s obviously important as well is who can finish their chances.

The former Bafana Bafana player went on to say that the former Maritzburg United coach appears to have lost control over his team and that he hasn’t inspired them to play at a standard appropriate to the Soweto giants’ expectations. “From my point of view, you can say that Steve hasn’t got control of the situation,” he continued. “I think maybe there’s more to it, or that he can only identify the problem. “But you can see it clearly when the team goes out that there’s no spirit, there’s no proper direction in terms of their wing-backs trying to create with crosses or any of that.”
