Komphela: SSU dangerous customers

Nedbank Cup

Amakhosi will host the penultimate last-eight clash as they welcome Matsatsantsa to the FNB Stadium, with kick-off set for 18h00 on Saturday.

Chiefs come into the match boasting a 14-match unbeaten run in all competitions, while they are undefeated in all 12 games they've played at The Calabash this season.

Meanwhile, United have suffered a double setback in their persuit of their first league title in seven years, having recently lost to Tshwane rivals Mamelodi Sundowns in back-to-back league outings.

Komphela, though, remains defiant of his side's healthy run since December last year, emphasising that they have not yet achieved anything, as he anticipates a resurgent performance from the defending cup champions.

"They are not getting the results,” noted Komphela. “And that makes them dangerous customers. They are experiencing a hiccup but that doesn’t make them a bad team.”

With his own side's league title hopes still alive, as they sit pretty in third position – one point off log leaders Cape Town City, Komphela refuses to fall into prioritizing one campaign and states his intention to try and land both.

“At Chiefs the challenge remains the same. There’s no minor match and there’s no practice match either," he said.

"The expectations at Chiefs are clear, and that is: we have to win both the league and cup. We are fighting for every cup competition on offer and this one [Nedbank] will not be an exception.”
