Lucky calls for Bucs support

Telkom Knockout

The game will be Bucs' first since the tragic passing of their captain and goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa, who was laid to rest in Durban this past weekend.

Brighton Mhlongo is expected to don the gloves ahead of Patrick Zikalala against Matsatsantsa.

Lekgwathi told his club's official website: “I would like to see a full stadium. It has not been easy for us in the past few days, so, if the fans can really come out and just push us, I think we will be fine.

“This game will be very difficult for the team, but we want to play to win this game.

“I wish every fan can just come to the stadium and help us win this match because we want to get to another final again, and get strong again.”

The 38-year-old, who recently resumed full training following a lengthy spell out through injury, added: “Things will be normal again. It is difficult especially for the younger guys to be strong, but as a team we are doing everything to get everyone strong again.”
