Maritzburg lock horns with the Soweto giants in their TKO quarter-final encounter at the Orlando Stadium today with proceedings scheduled to get underway at 15h00.

The Team of Choice put in an inspired performance against Jomo Cosmos in the opening round of the tournament emerging 2-1 winners.

Bucs, on the other hand, scraped through their opening round game against the University of Pretoria with a 2-1 victory.

Barker has indicated that both he and his players are excited about the prospect of playing against the Buccaneers and is expecting a competitive fixture.

“Whenever I ask my players who they would like to play in a tournament, they say Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates or Mamelodi Sundowns. We expect it to be a fantastic game,” Barker told Soccer Laduma.

“I think we will be very competitive. Playing Pirates will give us a benchmark of where we are going and what we still need to do, so I am delighted we are playing Pirates!”
