Nedbank Cup last-16 draw

Nedbank Cup last-16 draw

Posted: 19 April 2010 Time: 11:53 am

The draw for the Nedbank Cup last-16 was made today in Johannesburg.

After an exciting last 32 round, where a staggering 60 goals were scored and six PSL sides crashed out of the competition, plenty more action is on the cards after some interesting clashes were set up for this weekend.   The clash of the tie will see defending Nedbank Champions Moroka Swallows take on AmaZulu. In reaction to the draw, Usuthu coach Neil Tovey quickly responded, “Swallows are a tough side, but if you want to win this cup competition you have to beat everyone.”   No truer words have been spoken and that is definitely the train of thought FC Cape Town will be thinking along as they have to take on the country's in-form side at present, Kaizer Chiefs.    Still, despite the challenge ahead of them FC Cape Town's assistant coach and team manager, Keith Daniels, is confident in his side's ability: “To be the best you have to beat the best.  And no side is unbeatable in a cup game. Everyone has an equal playing field.”   With that said, one thing PSL sides will not do is take any team – be they minnows or giants – lightly in this competition. The Amakhosi coach, Vladimir Vermezovic, certainly pointed this out when he said, “We have to take every game seriously and show respect to all our opponents. It is important that we are very careful against the so called smaller teams.”   Another coach who highlighted this point ,finding out his side Orlando Pirates was taking on third tier side ALS Puk Tawana, was coach Ruud Krol: “There are never easy draws. Any team can be dangerous and Tawana proved that by kicking out Platinum Stars.”   The only other all-PSL clash is the match between Ajax Cape town and Free State Stars and that will be no dull game. Another interesting clash taking place is the all out war that is due to happen between Jomo Cosmos and Pretoria University, who have been dubbed as giant killers.   Other PSL teams playing this upcoming weekend will see Bidvest Wits taking on Thanda Royal Zulu, while Mamelodi Sundowns host Balck Leopards and MP Black Aces travel to play Winners Park.   Nedbank Cup last-16 fixtures: (Home team is mentioned first)

Winners Park vs. Mpumalanga Black Aces Moroka Swallows vs. AmaZulu Ajax Cape Town vs. Free State Stars Mamelodi Sundowns vs. Black Leopards Bidvest Wits vs. Thanda Royal Zulu Jomo Cosmos vs. University of Pretoria Orlando Pirates vs. Als Puk Tawana FC Cape Town vs. Kaizer Chiefs

This was the prayer from Parktown where Sunflops and Piecity were holding a night vigil:

Our father who art in heaven
Hallowed be the Khosi name
Their kingdom has come
Their will is done
On the pitch
As in the boardroom

Give us this day second division teams
And forgive us asking this of you
As we try to avoid the Khosification of our beloved teams
Lead us not into Khositation
But deliver us from Musona and Yende
For theirs is the Kingdom
The power and the glory
Forever and ever
Amen

Amen KHOSI LAMI

However, I thought since we are drawn with the tougher opposition, AmaNzula would have been an ideal opponent for us. Shame FC Cape Town....now I'm sure they have started training and they already have spies on our training grounds

When they lose to Black Leopards, they will blame it on losing 7 QUAN-TI-TY players to BB. Hao, kanti what happened to the team that can produce 3 quality starting 11?

I am disappointed. When is the next draw (quarter final)? Anyway, there is no any better team; we smashed all teams in top 6. I should ask about the date for the final and start organizing celebrations.

Fair Draw.I hope complacency wont creep in on the chiefs charges seeing that they've drawn minnows,however i'm more interested on VV's approach.Will he give other players a chance (Those that have not fitured much of late) or continue with his telkom winning team?

I can tell you now, all teams in the Chiefs roll were part of the Telkom Cup winning team.

It does not matter who starts the game, they all have a winning mantality. We have depth and I would love to see Lucky Khune and Nkambule playing...

Pirates is not 1 skipper team or Gayser Chiefs aka Family Business FC
