This weekend all eyes turn to the Nedbank Cup with seven of the eight last 16 matches being played.
Orlando Pirates face Maritzburg United on the back of a 1-1 draw against SuperSport United.
“I think we don’t look flat, it’s just that in the past times we had a lot of new players coming in. We didn’t have a typical pre-season, we also had to integrate players. Then we had a lot of injured players, today we have about six offensive players who are injured,” said Josef Zinnbauer in trying to explain his side’s yo-yo form.
His next agenda is overseeing his side at the team occupying the bottom of the log.
In other key matchup, Cape Town City face Chippa United. First they meet in Cup action and then league duty.
“We play the Nedbank Cup to win, not just to compete,” coach Jan Olde Riekerink told the media on Thursday. “The first game is in a big stadium and we will be really motivated.
“Chippa are a tough opponent, we played to a 1-1 draw in the league at home. Our focus is on getting through to the next round and then we will think of the league game.”
City are without a win in four PSL games and a win on the weekend will set them up for another climb up the league table.
