Preview: Jomo Cosmos v SuperSport United 13/03/04
So-called cup specialists Jomo Cosmos host SuperSport United at the Rand Stadium on Sunday afternoon in what promises to be a hotly-contested Castle Premiership clash.

SuperSport are flying high after their 1-0 triumph over city rivals Sundowns on Wednesday evening, while the SAA Supa8 champions have failed to regain their winning momentum in the league race.

It seems the rumours that coach Jomo Sono could be leading the national team soon has affected his players negatively and having only won five games in 21, the 21 points they have indicate that the Ezenkosi are not favourites going into this home tie.

United are sixth on the Premiership table and are contenders for the league title having collected 34 points from 22 games - nine points less than log leaders Santos.

Former Cosmos players Pitso Mosimane and Tommy Madigage are the coaches of a youthful Pretoria team who came second in last season's Premiership race. They also know the tactics of their former mentor and should have their boys well prepared for the 2002 Coca Cola Cup winners.

Cosmos will look to captain and top-scorer Manuel Bucuane, and although the Mozambican international has not scored since January 31 when he netted a brace against Orlando Pirates, he has a reputation of rising to the occasion when needed.

Bucuane will be up against Matsatsantsa defender and captain Ricardo Katze, who has slotted well into a United defence after an ill-fated injury to veteran player Themba 'The Rock' Mnguni ruled the former 'Downs player out for this season.

United striker Aubin Takuchie has scored five league goals so far and with Daniel Matsua partnering the Ivorian it seems Mosimane has found a winning combination up front.
