The Nedbank Cup is back in action this week to wrap up the last round of 16 on Wednesday with Dondol welcoming AmaZulu at FNB stadium. The ABC Motsepe side were the first side to become a ‘David’ in the battle of David and Goliath when they defeated SuperSport United.

Their determination will be tested when they take on Usuthu side who beat Chippa in a League encounter on Sunday.  


The PSL announced on Tuesday that which was originally scheduled to be played at TUT will now take place at FNB. The venue change was necessitated by the student protest action at the TUT campus which began earlier this week.
