Pitso Mosimane’s charges pulled off an incredible performance this past week after securing a 2-0 victory against Polokwane City. Themba Zwane will be looking to show off the same skills this weekend, however, their opponents with the experience of defenders like Siyanda Zwane, and Limbikani Mzava to name a few, will be looking to put their bodies on the line to bounce back to form in the cup competition.

The Matsatsantsa players’ confidence has been boosted after their midweek victory against AmaZulu in the league, however, Bucs will be looking to improve on their performances.
