Polokwane City midfielder Sipho Jembula says they don't fear any team ahead of their Absa Premiership clash with SuperSport United at Lucas Moripe Stadium on the weekend.
The Q2 winners are motivated by their R1,5 million prize and will hope to inflict pain on Gordon Igesund’s charges come Saturday night.
Looking at the two sides, after winning the Telkom Knockout Cup, Matsatsantsa have lost to Mamelodi Sundowns and drew against Ajax Cape Town whilst Rise and Shine have registered five out of six wins, most recently beating Chippa United 3-1.
“We haven’t changed our preparations because we take each and every game as it comes – we don’t fear anyone,” says Jembula.
“We are aware that United are a big side, were crowned champions and they have great players who are tactically disciplined but we are confident now as a team.
“Our coach [Kosta Papic] has instilled a sense of belief where we don’t have an away or home game – we just want to go there and collect the points.
“Yes, we anticipate a difficult match but we can’t just relax on the day, we’ll give it our best shot. We’re highly motivated by the Q2 prize and we’ll focus on our qualities.”
The Citizens man adds that they have no injuries or suspensions for the clash in Tshwane, which kicks off at 20h15.
