It’s been a while not winning any silverware, I think this one is going to be very important for the team, playing for the fans, the team and the chairman because he has been supporting us all these years and obviously it would be nice for us to win the trophy for him,” Jele said on Pirates’ official Twitter account.

“We want to go out and play our normal football. It is a big game, very exciting and a challenge for us playing against Wits, but I am hoping that we are going to be prepared very well because the first game we played against them in the league, we lost,” he added.

The first round of the Nedbank Cup competition in early February, with the Premier Soccer League yet to announce the dates, times and venues.
