SuperSport United midfielder Thuso Phala says they will go all out in this weekend’s Nedbank Cup final against Orlando Pirates as they have nothing to lose.
With the two sides having met last weekend in their final Absa Premiership match of the season, they will have a good idea of what to expect come Saturday afternoon.
Phala, who has missed only one game for United in all competitions in the current campaign, is relishing the rematch and says it’s always an exciting affair when playing against “a big team” in a cup final.
“Yeah, we’re very excited, especially because we’re playing a big team like Pirates. It’s always a nice final when coming up against a big team,” says the 29-year-old.
“It’s going to be a challenge for us, and it’s the last game of the season, so we have to give it our all. We have nothing to lose.”
The former Platinum Stars winger adds that their top-eight finish in the league has spurred the team on, and reveals that the club are still on course to reach the target they set themselves at the start of the season.
“The guys are also more confident now because we made it into the top eight, which is the kind of end to the season we wanted,” he says.
“We wanted to be in the top eight and win a cup, and we have the opportunity for that so we have to go all out to make it happen.”
Matsatsantsa and the Buccaneers will clash at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane this Saturday, with kick-off set for 15h00. Tickets are still available through Computicket outlets nationwide.
