Starting XI: Leopards v Amavarara

Nedbank Cup

Teams: Black Leopards v Amavarara

Date: 21 February 2020

Venue: Thohoyandou Stadium

Black Leopards will be out to avoid a Nedbank Cup upset when they host ABC Motsepe League side Amavarara in the last 16 on Friday evening at Thohoyandou Stadium.

The match will get underway at 20h00.

Lidoda Duvha booked their spot in the round of 16 after drubbing third tier side North West University 4-0 on home soil almost two weeks ago.

Alan Clark’s charges held their own against Orlando Pirates in the league last Sunday but succumbed to a last-gasp 1-0 defeat after an unfortunate own goal by Thabiso Mokoena.

Meanwhile, Amavarara reached this stage of the tournament for the first time in their history after edging fellow ABC Motsepe League side Super Eagles 2-1 in the last 32.

Amavarara hails from Chris Hani District Municipality in the Eastern Cape and are campaigning for the first time in the Nedbank Cup.

Mzunani Mgwigwi’s charges are currently lying seventh in the Eastern Cape ABC Motsepe League table with 28 points after 17 matches.

Here's how they line up:

Leopards: Muleka, Mudau, Matlaba, Ndou, Douhadji, Abubakar, Ng'ambi, Ndlovu, Ndlovu, Ngele, Kapinga.

Subs: Maduwa, Ndawonde, Makgetlwa, Mokoena, Mncwango, Katjiukua, Khutlang.

Amavarara: Mini, Ntsane, Mzazi, Kelepu, Twani, Gocina, Tonisi, Mbenyana, Maso, Gxaba, Lafota.

Subs: Gwangwa, Nqumashe, Thwani, Velaphi, Sizane, Dayimani, Mambeshu.
