SuperSport and Pirates to clash 3 times in a week


Bucs and Matsatsantsa will battle it out in the first leg of the MTN8 semi-final on the weekend of August 18/19, and then face each other in the League at Peter Mokaba Stadium on August 22, before the second leg of the cup semi on August 25/26.

SuperSport are at home for the first leg of the MTN8 semi-final, with the venue yet to be confirmed. They are also hosts in the League match, although home advantage for Matsatsantsa in Polokwane will surely be negligable.

The cluster of fixtures would prove a headache for any coach, but Gavin Hunt says he is concentrating on his team's season opener against Ajax Cape Town.

"I've got a game in Cape Town on Friday, so I'm going to worry about that first," he says.

Hunt points out that SuperSport have been "playing matches in Polokwane for the last two years", and as for tactics, he says they will have one thing on their mind: "I mean, we try our best to win every game."
