“Whoever you receive you have to welcome,” he told SuperSportTV after the draw. “I wish we could say ‘save the best for last’, but we’ll see – we have SuperSport who are good, and we’ll take it as it comes.”

The Chiefs head coach feels the sides know each other all too well, and expects a very close encounter between the two Absa Premiership giants.

“I think it will be difficult,” he continued. “Stuart Baxter has the DNA [for this competition], many of the SuperSport players have been with us and we both have the understanding of each other. They’ve only lost two matches, we’ve only lost three – these statistics are very close. Both teams are fighting for the championship, so it will be tight.”

Komphela added: “Whatever the outcome, one is guaranteed that you will not face insults, only a fair footballing comment.”

Quarter-final dates and venues are yet to be officially confirmed by the PSL.
