We take on TS Galaxy in our first home fixture of the 2019 Nedbank Cup on Saturday. The semi final will kick off at Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium at 15h00.
The road to the semi’s have seen us secure three away wins against Tjakastad Junior Shepard in the Last 32, Witbank Spurs in the last 16 and then Bloemfontein Celtic in the quarterfinal.
Both the coaching staff and players are confident ahead of the game, but know that TS Galaxy need to be treated with respect on Saturday, as they could be a dark horse in the competition with the amount of determination they are showing at the moment.
That being said, the team will be looking to secure a positive result in the 90 minutes of play on Saturday.
TS Galaxy will be wanting to be added to the list of second teams that have reached the finals of the competition. Following in the footsteps of Mpumalanga Black Aces, AmaTuks and Black Leopards.
Their coach, Dan Malesela is no stranger to the semi final pressures of the competition, having led United FC (2013) and Chippa United (2017) to the same position. He has not yet gone further in the competition and will be wanting his team to progress to the final this year.
Having beaten Umvoti FC, Jomo Cosmos and Cape Umoya to reach the semi’s, we will be the first top-flight opposition they face in this years competition.
