Nedbank Cup

The Buccaneers are set to travel to Venda to square off with a reinvigorated Lidoda Duvha outfit under the tutelage of Englishman Dylan Kerr this weekend.

Leopards have gone from propping up the Absa Premiership table to 11th since the arrival of Kerr, having lost only his first game in charge before going on a five-match unbeaten streak.

It is perhaps with this in mind that Sredojevic is reluctant to reveal which of his charges are unlikely to feature, as he insisted even those that are injured would sacrifice their wellbeing for a match of this significance.

“A match of this magnitude and importance like the Nedbank Cup always pushes players to play even with one leg if needed and possible,” said 'Micho'.

“We have very committed, dedicated and hard-working players, and I will not speak about the individuals – I will just tell that today’s [evening] training and tomorrow’s session will answer us in terms of who the players are that will start.

“But our supporters need to be assured that it will be our best XI at present, the best players ready with the impact of fresh legs, and we’re looking for the best possible performance and result on Saturday at 6pm in Thohoyandou Stadium.”
