Wits out for revenge 03/12/04
SASoccer365 reader Norman Chauke analyses the Coca-Cola Cup semi-final between Wits University and Supsersport United and shares his views with us.

Another defeat for Wits University on Sunday when they meet Supersport United for the Coca-Cola Cup semi-final at Olen Park would be a bitter pill to swallow. They were kicked out by this very team at the very same stage in the SAA Supa 8 in September.

Supersport United may come out spitting fire given that they are coming off a shocking result in a 2-1 loss to Manning Rangers over the weekend. On the same note, Wits only managed to secure one point from a possible three in their last league match against Celtic.

Both teams are not on the right end of their performances, so given the magnitude of this cup match, we can expect entertaining football. Reagan Noble and Etienne Bito'o are holding the aces for Wits. In the quarter final game against Sundowns, Noble was unstoppable as he contributed in Elasto Kapowezha's goal and also managed to get onto the score sheet. Charles Yohane and Alois Bunjira can turn on the magic on a good day and their presence will be much needed by the likes of Solomons who appears to have lost his form.

Supersport's experience in the CAF competition will probably come into effect in this match. Playing in the final seems to be their goal as they are losing league matches they were not supposed to lose, judging by their standards. Just after winning the SAA Cup, they went public on their plans to win the Coke Cup. To do that, they have the mammoth task of getting past Wits.

Should Dikgang Mabalane be given a chance to play, he will not find it easy to get past Bjorn Gugger who seems to have settled well on the left back for Wits. Ricardo Katza is having one of the best seasons as he continuously hits the back of the net. Phil Evans is more than a right back, as he is so good at bringing his teammates into play. Pitso is unpredictable in his approach, so Roger and his troops will need to play on their opponents' weakness.

One thing both coaches and sets of players should remember is that a DRAW IS PROHIBITED in Sunday's match.
