Chiefs wary of minnows FC Buffalo in Nedbank Cup clash

2014-03-26 10:36

Memories of Maluti FET College knocking out Orlando Pirates in last year’s Nedbank Cup will be fresh in Kaizer Chiefs players’ minds when they take on minnows, FC Buffalo, this evening.

Chiefs were also similar victims when amateur club, Baroka FC, sent them packing a few seasons ago in the same tournament.

Amakhosi, still smarting from their 3-0 defeat by DRC side AS Vita in the Caf Champions League, will want to quickly erase the weekend memories and advance to the quarterfinals of this competition.

The defending Nedbank champions will be without some of their key players, notably Knowledge Musona and defender Tefu Mashamaite, who have been suspended for the game.

But it won’t be smooth sailing for Chiefs as the Eastern Cape team has nothing to lose coming into this game.

Buffalo, the only remaining amateur side in the tournament, will be looking to upset Chiefs in their own backyard.

In another match tonight, Moroka Swallows welcome SuperSport United at Dobsonville Stadium. Swallows have been blowing hot and cold and this is their last chance of winning silverware this season.

United have also experienced mixed fortunes and will go to the game on the back of a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Tunisian side, Etoile du Sahel, in the Caf Confederations Cup.
