Starting XI: Ubuntu v Polokwane

Nedbank Cup

Teams: Ubuntu Cape Town v Polokwane City

Date: 07 February 2018

Venue: Athlone Stadium

Ubuntu Cape Town will have an opportunity to upset the apple cart when they host Absa Premiership side Polokwane City at Athlone Stadium in Wednesday’s Nedbank Cup clash.

The match is scheduled to get underway at 19h30.
 
Ubuntu sit bottom of the NFD after 20 matches and the odds are stacked in favour of their visitors — who showed their potential in cup competitions during a run to the Telkom Knockout semi-finals.
 
Rise and Shine have been one of the most clinical sides in the Absa Premiership, with only five teams having scored more goals in the league so far.
 
However, only two have leaked more at the back and the Capetonians will be looking to exploit their defensive frailty.
 
That being said, having drawn four games on the trot, Bernard Molekwa’s men will be eager to return to winning ways.

Here's how they line up:

Ubuntu: 1. Khoza, 12. Sigwebela, 17. Heutchou-Kullong, 5. Fleurs, 24. Bezuidenhout, 42. Chiwunga, 30. Adonis, 33. Mayo, 10. Chivaviro, 36. Mahlatsi, 24. Cale.
 
Subs: 6. Gwala, 15. Jacobs, 9. Madikane, 3. Sefoli, 11. Sibanda, 21. Isaacs, 19. Goss.
 
Polokwane: 50. Ndlovu; 3. Tshehla; 24. Hlongwane; 19. Ravhuhali; 22. Mbonani; 20. Phiri; 6. Vilakazi; 16. Mngomezulu; 10. Tlolane; 34. Sulumba; 7.Booi.

Subs: 1. Chigova, 2. Semenya; 25. W. Maluleke; 33. Sikhosana; 29. Musona; 9. Chungwa; 8. J. Maluleke.
