The Republic Mail looks at three Nedbank Cup games this weekend.
Swallows vs Maritzburg
Swallows FC will play hosts, Maritzburg United at Dobsenville Stadium, kick-off 15:30pm.
Swallows FC will have it tough when they host Martizburg United in their first David vs Goliath clash as it will be Swallows’ first game against the PSL team since their relegation in 2014/15.
Kaizer Chiefs vs Golden Arrows
Record Nedbank Cup Champions, Kaizer Chiefs take the stage on Sunday when they go head to head with Golden Arrows at FNB Stadium. It’s been a fruitful journey for the Amakhosi’s so far, but they are yet to take home the cup in some five years.
Arrows is a problematic side to pass this season, as Abafana bes’sthende will look to upset Chiefs on home ground come Sunday.
Happy Wanderers vs Royal Eagles
Royal Eagles have tightened their squad with players of top flight pedigree in their ranks. They narrowly missed out on the play off promotion in the last few seasons and this year, things look shaky as they face relegation. They are however in the first round of the Nedbank Cup as they gear up with a clash against the Wanderers.
