SAFA Second Division side Maluti FET College have warned Orlando Pirates to come prepared for a battle when they clash in the Nedbank Cup at the Charles Mopeli Stadium on Saturday.
Maluti have drawn inspiration from Baroka FC’s amazing run in the same competition two years ago and feel they can caused one of the biggest cup shocks in South Africa soccer history against the defending Premiership champions.
“We respect Pirates, but are not afraid of them,” coach Morena Ramoreboli tells KickOff.com.
“Our preparations for this game have gone well. My intention and the aim of the team is to qualify for the next stage of the competition and the only way to do that is by beating Orlando Pirates on Saturday.”
He adds: “We obviously don’t have any big-name players as we only believe in the development of our own youngsters. The team has been together for three seasons and we believe we are experienced and mature enough to compete against Pirates.”
