Struggling Zulu Royals are hoping to cause an big upset on Saturday when they travel to Pretoria to play the in-form Supersport United in a Absa Cup match.
Matsatsantsa have been in fine form of late, winning their last four games on the trot and climbing up the fourth position on the Castle Premieship table in the process.
Usuthu, in stark contrast, are in deep trouble in the relegation zone, but this has not stopped the Durban team from hoping for some cup glory.
The Usuthu PRO Chris Mlotshwa told SASoccer365, "Supersport is looking at our position on the Castle Premiership table and thinking that we are the whipping boys.
"One thing for sure is that we are at the wrong end of the Castle Premiership table, but we have a equal chance in the Absa Cup like all the 16 teams which are still in the competition."
"Right now we cannot talk about winning the Castle Premiership, but we can talk about winning the Absa Cup," said Mlotshwa.
Mlotshwa confirmed that Emmanuel Ngobese, who was fined R4 000 by the club and Oscar Ramogoadi, who had R5 000 deducted from his salary for missing their team's Castle Premiership match against Golden Arrows, will both be in the squad this weekend.
He also said that they were no players who were carrying any injuries and Clive Barker will have all the players at his disposal and
The PRO also mentioned that the wayward Thabiso Malatsi has still returned to the club.
Pitso Mosimane has a team that have rediscovered its form. Supersport have been playing very well in the Castle Premiership and if they are to play the same kind of attacking football which they did in their last win against Wits, then Royals will have their work cut out for them.
Abram Raselemane and Daniel Matsau are match winners on their day and if Mosimane decides to play three strikers by including the free-scoring Aubin Takutchie, then there will be a harvest of goals on Saturday.
