News reaching the Siya crew is that Polokwane City’s Nedbank cup clash against Golden Arrows in the last 32 has been moved to February 22.
The PSL has confirmed that the fixture which is one of the few pitting PSL teams against each other, was initially set to be played on February 18.
According to the PSL rookies’ website, their priority is to avoid the chop at the end of the season, but given the prize money on offer, Boebie Solomons’ men will be looking to go as far as possible in the tournament an earn themselves a share of the R 6million.
One of 'Rise and Shine’s key players, Moffat Mdluli, says they just want to do well against Abafana Bes’thende regardless of the venue.
“We don’t care where we play Arrows because the intention is to do well. What is important is that we make a name for ourselves. The league is a priority of course but that does not mean we cannot take the Nedbank Cup seriously,” said Mdluli.
With the Chan tournament coming to an end this weekend, City are destined to resume their league second round campaign when they meet Platinum Stars next Tuesday.
“The training and preparations are going smoothly and furthermore we cannot wait for the second round of the league to get underway,” added Mdluli.
