Dolphins FC have promised to emulate the success of Baroka FC and make the Limpopo province proud when they play Platinum Stars in a Nedbank Cup last 32 game tonight.
Baroka engraved their name South African soccer folklore after beating both Moroka Swallows and Kaizer Chiefs in last season's competition, eventually falling just short by losing to Black Leopards in the semifinals. Dolphins now want to go one better by reaching the final, despite most of the minnows having already been knocked out at the first hurdle this season. "Every soldier when going to war has one thing in mind … victory! We are going into the game against Platinum Stars with only one thing in mind, and that is victory," Dolphins technical director William Makhibela tells KickOff.com. "We are not going to show Platinum Stars any respect and will play them as a team. And I want to warn them to underestimate us at their peril." Dikwena have not been at their best in recent months, and coach Owen da Game will be looking for a good run in the Nedbank Cup to ensure he keeps his job.
