Nedbank Cup

Starting XI: Chippa v Polokwane

Nedbank Cup
 
Teams: Chippa United v Polokwane City 
 
Date: 08 April 2017
 
Venue: Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium 
 
Polokwane City will be targeting to reach the quarter-finals for the second successive season when they visit Chippa United in the last 16 clash of the Nedbank Cup.
 
The match is set to start at 15h00.
 
This is the first time the Chilli Boys have reached the last 16 of the lucrative national cup since the club was established in 2010.
 
The Eastern Cape based side were Hammered 4-1 by Cape Town City away in the Absa Premiership game on Monday with Rhulani Manzini netting for Chippa United.
 
Prior to that loss in Cape Town the Chilli Boys had defeated NFD side Witbank Spurs 1-0 thanks to Lerato Manzini's goal in the last 32 clash three weeks ago.
 
However the Dan Malesela charges will have to do without Lerato Manzini in this encounter as the striker is suspended.
 
City are now under caretaker coach Bernard Molekwa. The Polokwane based outfit lost 1-0 to Bloemfontein Celtic in an Absa Premiership encounter at home last weekend.
 
They however booked their place in the last 16 of the competition after beating ABC Motsepe side African All Stars almost a month ago. 
 
Polokwane defender Thapelo Tshilo will miss the encounter due to suspension.
 
The last time Chippa United and Polokwane City clashed, Rise and Shine claimed 1-0 win in a league encounter four weeks ago.
 
Here's how they line up:
 
Chippa: 1. Akpeyi, Ngubane, 7. Mako, 13. Chabalala, 35. Bergman, 31. Sangweni(C), 15. Zuke, 41. Masuku, 6. Sali, 19. R. Manzini.
 
Polokwane: 1. Chigova, 99. Tshehla, 15. Klaas, 23. Tema, 22. Mbonani, 20. Phiri, 16. Mngomezulu, 6. Vilakazi, 17. Ramagalela, 9. Maluleke, 29. Musona.
