Nengomasha promises victory


Amakhosi will travel to the North West on Friday evening for the Soweto Derby in high spirits after their great away victory over Matsatsantsa at the Atteridgeville’s Super Stadium yesterday and Nengomasha believes that with the same performance displayed by the team in the past few games, there is nothing to stop them from beating Pirates on Saturday.

Speaking to last night, the Zimbabwean born midfielder said besides pride and the points at stake, they want to give their supporters a pleasant weekend by beating the Mighty Buccaneers.

“To play in a Derby is not only about winning but also about being part of history. This derby is rated among the top 10 in the world and so it is special.

“Being a foreign player and to be counted alongside players like Doctor Khumalo, who have played in the Derby almost makes me feel special.”

Nengomasha added that he will miss his battle with former Orlando Pirates midfielder Benedict Vilakazi.

“I don’t have a specific derby that I would say has been the best, but I can tell you that I used to enjoy it when Vilakazi was still at Pirates.”

The Zimbabwean midfielder is expected to partner Reneilwe Letsholonyane in the Battle of Mafikeng.

Bucs will also be in high spirits after beating Platinum Stars at the Johannesburg Stadium last night.

Pirates’ coach Rudi Krol is expected to pick the same team that has been doing a great job for him in their past three games while Amakhosi coach Muhsin Ertugral is expected to make only one change in the team that played against SuperSport United yesterday, with Jimmy Tau expected to retain his position at the right-back.
