Starting XI: AmaZulu v Bucks

Nedbank Cup
 
Teams: AmaZulu v Mthatha Bucks
 
Date: 07 February 2018
 
Venue: King Zwelithini Stadium 
 
AmaZulu will be looking to avoid a giant killing act when they host Mthatha Bucks in a Nedbank Cup last 32 clash at King Zwelithini Stadium on Wednesday night.
 
The mach is scheduled to get underway at 19h30.
 
Usuthu were labeled relegation candidates in the last few weeks but have gone to defy the odds and moved out of the relegation play-off spot.
 
Cavin Johnson has kept faith with veteran strikers Siyabonga Nomvethe and Mabhuti Khenyeza who have continued to bolster the young squad but the former Platinum Stars coach will now have the freedom to blood his youngsters against the National First Division outfit.
 
The KwaZulu-Natal-based side will be brimming with confidence after beating Golden 2-1 in the Provincial derby last weekend.
 
Meanwhile, Amathol’Amnyama are coming into this tie with nothing to lose and will give their all to grab the headlines by getting the better of the top flight side.
 
Bucks are however struggling in the National First Division, as they occupy bottom spot on the log with one-third of the fixtures in the league remaining.
 
Here's how they line up:
 
AmaZulu: 41. Pule, 24. Sikhakhane, 29. Mabiliso, 27. Nyongo, 13. Ouro-Akoriko, 14. Mnguni, 33. Darpoh, 6. Ncube, 8. Ncobeni, 12. Dlamini, 18. Abraw.
 
Subs: 28. Mbatha, 22. Mthembu, 3. Dlamini, 32. Lumkwana, 34. Maduna, 7. Ramphele, 2. Khenyeza.
 
Bucks: 32. Kwizera, 14. Majadibou, 18. Ndletyana, 42. Rantabane, 41. Letsisa, 2. Ntuli, 31. Kerspuy, 30. Dubula, 3. Japhta, 37. Uhuru, 17. Erasmus.
