Swallows, Bucs face off

2011-10-27 12:39

The Moroka Swallows versus Orlando Pirates clash was undoubtedly the pick of the line-up of the Telkom Knockout quarterfinals draw conducted today.

Swallows will be the host of this Soweto Derby.

In other fixtures, 2008 winners Ajax Cape Town will meet hoodoo side Golden Arrows in Cape Town.

Another Capetonian side, Santos, also received a home draw for their clash against Platinum Stars.

Jomo Cosmos, who knocked out Bloemfontein Celtic with a 3-0 hammering last night, will host Bidvest Wits.

Pirates captain Lucky Lekgwati said: “It is not an easy draw. But this a trophy that slipped through our hands last season and we know what it takes to get into the final. But we’ll take it one step at a time.”

Interestingly, Pirates beat Swallows in last MTN8 Cup final en route to the Buccaneers’ historic treble last season.

The PSL will confirm the venues and dates.
