While Maritzburg United players are dreaming of winning Telkom Knockout silverware, Jeremy Brockie could still end the year without a medal.
United are set to meet Mamelodi Sundowns in Durban on 14 December without the services of Brockie due to the loan agreement between the two clubs.
Brockie has already missed the league match between the two sides and the New Zealand-born striker will likely also miss the showpiece at Moses Mabhida Stadium.
Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane remained coy about the possibility of his team changing the loan agreement and meeting the former SuperSport United striker on the pitch.
"You must ask Yogesh [Singh] because me as a person I don't say this one must play and this one must not play. I don't have a right. There are many questions around those things," he said.
"You can ask why not and you can ask because we have done it before also remember, and all these players have scored against us.
"We pay them and so you can chose that you pay the player and he takes you out of the Telkom Cup or somebody [else] must pay him and he takes you out of the Telkom Cup.
"I have seen Atletico Madrid doing it. I have seen Bidvest Wits doing it. I have seen SuperSport United doing it. I am not promoting it, I really don't care that much.
"Bongi [Ntuli] has scored against us and this is the first time belonging to AmaZulu."

Whether Brockie is available or not, 'Jingles' believes semifinal hero Judas Moseamedi will be leading the attacking line for Maritzburg and they will need to prepare to stop him.
"I don't want to go deeper whether Maritzburg will line up Brockie ahead of Judas Moseamedi for the final," he added.
"Whether you allow him or not, you know he is a number nine and Judas Mosaemedi [can] fix these things."
