  • Itumeleng Khune has been gifted with a rare start for the Warriors team in next week's DStv Compact Cup.
  • The Warriors will be facing Amabutho FC while Coastal United will clash with Dinaledi.
  • Khune has fallen out of selection favour with Stuart Baxter at Kaizer Chiefs. 

The DSTV Compact Cup teams have not only been announced, but also where they will play their semi-finals on 22 January

Coastal United will be up against Dinaledi at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in the 15.00 start while the Warriors will face Amabutho in the 18.00 kickoff at the same arena.

The winners of the fixtures will meet in the final on 29 January at the FNB Stadium at 14.30 with the losing semi-finalists clashing at 12.00 at the same stadium.

The make-up of the teams has also been revealed, with the biggest surprise being former Bafana Bafana keeper Itumeleng Khune getting a surprise start for the Warriors.

Khune, who has been struggling for game time at Kaizer Chiefs, will joined by teammates Njabulo Ngcobo, Nkosingiphile Ngcobo, Njabulo Blom and Keagan Dolly.

The Amabutho team they will be facing has the likes of Veli Mothwa, Augustine Mulenga, Luvuyo Memela and Thabo Qalinge from AmaZulu while Royal AM's sharpshooter Victor Letsoalo is also part of the Amabutho side.

The Dinaledi side has a very big Sundowns contingent in Rushine de Reuck, Ricardo Goss, Gaston Sirino, Gift Motupa and Kermit Erasmus while the SuperSport United flavour is provided by Teboho Mokoena, Sipho Mbule and Luke Fleurs.

The quartet is completed by a Coastal United side that has a distinctly Stellenbosch FC and Baroka FC look and feel.
